Press Review: Zeppelin Scores In West Berlin Concert

Led Zeppelin, one of Britain's top pop groups, wound up a four-city tour of West Germany last Sunday (19), before nearly 6,000 rock fans at the local Deutschlandhalle. It was their fourth concert in as many days. They previously played Cologne, Essen and Frankfurt.

The hall's poor acoustics hampered the band at the opening of the performance. The audience, however, appeared satisfied at the finale and the combo played five encores. The house, whose capacity is about 9,000 seats, was chosen in order to make a lower admission scale possible. Prices ranged from six to 15 marks - about $1.60 - $4). [published 7-29-70]


"Peter Grant wandered out into the crowds milling around the stage, working his way around the permimeter on the lookout for pirate recording activity. Not surprisingly, there were blatant attempts to record the concert being made by organised professionals armed with stereo tape recorders and microphones on boom stands. Several digruntled 'engineers' set up in front of the stage soon found their tapes being unceremoniously confiscated. Peter ripped one tape spool from a machine and began tearing it up." (C. Welch, "The Man Who Led Zeppelin" biography)

Press Review: Another German record-breaker , with the six thousand crowd being bigger than the previous three rock shows at the Deutscheiandhalle. There were hoards of police with water-cannons ready to quell the anticipated riots, but Zeppelin left the audience too limp from the sheer excitement of the two-and-a-half hourshow. Even the police were toe-tapping and hand-clapping when Robert requested it!  Led Zeppelin are really something else – they even made the tough Berlin police bop on the aisles! (July 1970)
