Press Review: Three and a half hours of Led Zeppelin

The English rock quartet, Led Zeppelin, last night played a very complete performance which in three and-a-half hours encompassed many of their old hard rock hits, an acoustic set, a 25 minute drum solo and several mid-50s rock ‘n roll numbers.

Last night’s concert at the Coliseum was sold out at least a week ahead, so a second advance performance was scheduled Sunday to satisfy the extra patronage.

Led Zeppelin’s show was led by the driving piercing guitar antics of for Yardbird, Jimmy Page. Lead singer Robert Plant was able to dominate the stage much of the time, with his howling blues voice and pelvic contortions.

Songs from their old albums and to-be-released record include: Black Dog, Heartbreaker, The Ocean, Stairway to Heaven and Rock and Roll.

During the acoustic set, Page strummed a folk guitar and bassist John Paul Jones played a mandolin and what looked like a foot operated organ. [bass pedals]

The crowd roared with stoned excitement when the group presented several surprises at the first conclusion and three encores that followed.

They played Whole Lotta Love which led into a medley of Hello Mary Lou, Roy Orbison’s Only the Lonely, and Heartbreak Hotel. The second encore opened with an organ solo which picked up rhythm until joined by the group on Louie, Louie and Let’s Dance.

For the third encore, a very tired Led Zeppelin started with Money, and ended with Over the Hills and Far Away, and Dancing Days, both from the new album. [-D.Smith, 6-20-72]

One of the most legendary concerts ever! Over three hours long and what a show. There are lots of previews for the next album including Dancing Days performed twice! Plant introduced that song: "Well, that's the first time I believe we've ever done it. All being well we're gonna get this album out before the summer goes!" Black Country Woman gets its first live airing here, three years before it is released and five years before it is played live again. The organ medley contains many songs including Louie Louie! Dazed And Confused is one of the longest and best versions I have ever heard, including Walter's Walk and The Crunge among other references. After more than three hours, Plant tells to the audience: "We're only contracted to do fifty minutes in the first place and it's now three hours and twenty minutes since we started."

Really great show!!!

Almost went to show the night before too when they added it but the tickets were gone quickly. No worries though, this was the one to be at for sure. The set list says it all, tons of music!!!!

I remember Plant saying to the crowd just before they played Dancing Days for the second time, "well, we played this song about 3hours ago, but we thought you might want to hear it again"

These were the first two times I heard that song, after all these years I still can hear that song, it stands out against all the live music I have heard over the past 36 years.

I remember it well.
They were over an hour late from probs in BC. The crowd was cool
tossing frisbies and a ball around.
I was bombed, so the exact order of things is muddled at best.
Having been to hundreds of concerts in my life, starting with Jefferson Airplane in 1968 in Portland, Or {March?} and the Doors to the Dead in Seattle ( lost in the past, Nov.?} at the old Eagle's , but I digress.
THE BEST CONCERT I EVER ATTENDED IN MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The professionalism and attention to the crowd were beyond any expectation . Flawless execution and playing an extra 30 min. beyond the norm....... Priceless.........
It's a sad commentary that this kind of concert can never happen again. Money is the motivating factor, not the music.
But I am proud and privilaged to have been there, a moment in history....

The second concert in Seattle was for the crowd from Vancouver
Due to all concerts being cancelled in Vancouver that year from riots after the Stones concert.

I was there too. It still stands as the best concert I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of them! What a treat.

Terry's picture

I remember that...right on, and thanks for reminding me what a great show!

Paul's picture

I had a bootleg of this concert and have tried in vain to find it again. Thank You had an extended solo which was outstanding
