Notes: 

One of the sources of this rumored date originates from an article/interview with Jimmy Page in Boston, January 1969: "From Boston, the LZ goes to the Fillmore East, Toronto, Chicago, (would you believe) Memphis and a closing date in Miami."  In another JP interview (Sept. 1970), he recalls wanting to record at Sun Studios:  "I wanted to, but old Sam Phillips wouldn't do it. It was on the first tour and I suppose he thought who the Christ are they and he wasn't really interested. It had always been a dream of mine to record at Sun."   During the group's visit to Memphis in 1970, JP and RP went to Sun Records, but it was closed. During the '70 concert, RP states: "We've waited for a long time to come to Memphis".  [Read about Memphis 1970 in a piece written by Atlantic rep, Phillip Rauls here]

I was there with 10 other friends. It was assined seating and I said to
my friends lets go up there. We went up front and stood and the show
got Hotter. Robert Plant leaned over the stage and "said thanks kissed
my hand and then said the show will rock now". The whole audience
moved out of the chairs and crowed the stage. I was hypnotized by
the show and felt the music through my hole body. I didn't want the
show to end. Super Group that will always be my #1.

Great memory of the early Zep days, wondering if you remembered the name of the venue at Memphis State University where you saw the band play.
Cheers

The venue for the 1969 concert was the old field house on the Memphis State campus. In 1970 Zep played at the Mid-South Coliseum.
