Press Review: Led Zeppelin a Hit With Arena Crowd

England's Led Zeppelin and a crowd of 6,000 became good friends in two hours Monday night. The audience loved the acid rock group for its musical content. There were none of the old promotional tricks, no local DJs, no local bands, just the crowd and Led Zeppelin.

There was Robert Plant who looks like an Appalachian Jug Band reject, but who has more musical talent than the Tennessee Valley has water. And John Bonham who proved again that beat is only music without melody. John Paul Jones, still a little down over his father's death last week, but sending out vibrations in his organ solo.

Led Zeppelin is so much a part of today that it can easily transform into tomorrow. Its music cannot get much louder or its talent much better." (Milwaukee Journal, 9.1.70)

My friends and I wanted to

My friends and I wanted to see this show but all the good seats were sold out at all the ticket outlets so on a desperate hunch I drove down to the Arena the day of the show and went to the Box Office to see if there was anything left. "How many do you need?", asked the man. "I'd like four if possible", I replied. "Would 6th row center be OK?" (There is a brief pause as I pick my jaw up off the floor!) What a show, it will always be one of my favorite memories of age 16. They are truly one of the greatest innovative bands of Rock and the fact that they are still played on so many stations today is testament to that fact!
