Note: 

Press Review: Led Zeppelin Members Interact Memorably

Led Zeppelin blitzed the Guthrie Sunday evening. It revealed not just four players of extraordinary talent, but a group which understood that ensemble playing implies communication and mutual stimulation among its members.

It is the dialogue among the Zeppelin’s members that distinguishes the group. Pairs of players Sunday were constantly getting together in stage corners to establish musical conversations of exciting imaginativeness.

The concert’s repertory was varied and provocative. Page starred in (White Summer), there was irresistible speed and explosion in You Shook Me and there was anguish of a more traditional character in Babe I’m Gonna Leave You.

Perhaps the band’s best number was a slow powerful opus called Dazed and Confused. Zeppelin’s concert left not just that song’s protagonist but the entire audience stunned and dazzled. (P. Altman, MN Star Critic, May 1969)

I know it's coming up on the 40th anniversary of this show and I was
ony 14 at the time but I swear that they played Heartbreaker, What is and..., Whole Lotta Love (and Killing Floor became the Lemon Song).
I believe off of the first LP they also played Your Time is Gonna Come as Jimmy had a Pedal Steel onstage and JPJ played a B3 at one point.

Best show of my life BTW and it lasted abour 2hrs. and 45 min with a
short break where Peter Grant made them bring the Rickenbacher amps onstage and yelled at them, "I don't give a damn whether you use them or not..." (as I later read in the Richard Cole book that Richenbacher was funding the tour but Jimmy hated them and would borrow local bands Marshalls.)

The "reach-around" string bend in the Heartbreaker cadenza and the
Theramin on WLL really stand out in my memory of that show as well
as Jimmy D tuning his low E string instead of having an extra guitar for the tune that became Moby Dick (almost forgot that one, there was indeed a Drum solo - bare hands and all). All for $6.50!!!

Also went to this show. Day of the concert was spectacular: Sunny and in the mid 70's,.What a way to end the perfect day.

They did play Whole Lotta Love. I remember them smashing the gong when they played it.

I saw this show in 1969 at the Guthrie. Led Zepplin had taken the front seat from Jimmy Hendrix as the best rock & roll band on the airwaves. I remember we had great seats and I was mesmerized by "Dazed and Confused". I will always remember the huge gong on the stage.

***P.S. for Robert Plant. You are the best rock singer of all time and you owe it to your fans to do a tour with the band!!! 

 

Think of the fans not yourself!!!
