The opening act on those two dates was "Echo", a fantastic local band. They also opened for many major acts at this venue. I would love to have any video, if any exists. P.S. -- Ronald McDonald ran the park!

My father's printing company printed posters for this show. I would love to know if anybody has one and if they are willing to part with it?

I remember watching Led Zepplin at Pirates World and it was amazing.

I was there with my best friend Pam. We were right up front, i remember being so excited. People know what was going on.during that concert, or do they. Well i do, that's one concert i'll never forget. As a matter on fact that was my first concert, but it sure wasn't my last. Peace...

Pirates World was an outdoor park near Miami. They had a stage on the beach that had a back on it so the band couldn't see the light show that was happening out at sea. Big forked lightning accompanied Jimmy Page coming down on the guitar. Trippin' psychedelic.

I was there too. They had problems with their light show and Robert Plant had some not so very nice words to say over the microphone . Fun memories.

Im thrilled to even converse with anyone else that attended the Zeppelin Shows at Pirates World. They played Friday and Saturday night. Tickets were five dollars in advance, and I think 7-8 at the gate.I was so amazed with the show Friday night, I went back on Saturday. If you were there, you knew then they were something special. A few years later, I traveled up to Tampa with a group of freinds from Fort Lauderdale for the Houses of the Holy Tour. This was also a great, great show, but  it was the Pirates World show, they're first tour, that I am most thankful for attending.

Couldn't agree with you more. Had just moved to Hollywood 2 weeks before. 13 and had never been to a concert. First ever and it was Led Zeppelin!!! Just doesn't get any better. What a memory.

I was 18 years old, had been playing in an American rock band in South America where my father was stationed, and had just returned to the U.S., a hotel in Miami.  I had been hanging out at The Image, where an an amazing psychedelic scene was going on, it was like being in Hippie Disneyland.  We had heard Zep on the radio, and headed out to Pirate's WWorld for the concert.  It was just over-the-top amazing -- Jimmy played his violin bow, they cranked out the songs with breakneck speed, and -- this proves I was there -- the set list ended with "How many more times", but, in the middle of the song, Zep broke into "Communication Breakdown", played the whole song, then resumed with the second half of "How many more times", which had the crowd flipping out.  One of the best, and I've seen them all, trust me!!!

August 22, 1969. A memory for a lifetime. First concert of my life and it turns out to be the best concert of my life. I mean seriously, LED ZEPPELIN!!! Rides all day, first weed and first concert, all for $5!!! Became Led Zeppelin fan for life.

I was there for almost every concert they had at Pirates World. Zeppelin was one of my all time favorites. I was on Orange Sunshine and I thought Robert Plants blond hair was on fire. My friends had to hold me down to keep me from trying to help him. I do remember some issues with the lights and maybe that's what set me off. The Rascals was my  very 1st concert. We used to sneek in to the park at night by way of a path through the woods behind the cabin I lived in and go onn the towers with the swinging bridge. We watched a few concerts from that vanatage point and had Soo much fun tripping in the slides.
