Press Review: Led Zeppelin Overpower Fans
Led Zeppelin – one of rock music’s most successful groups – appeared at Dundee Caird Hall on Saturday night, and with a full house of 2560 fans the atmosphere was electric.
No support act had been contracted, so Zeppelin were on stage at the unusually early time of 8.15.
As the house lights dimmed, the power amplifier system of the band staggered the fans with its enormous volume.
For 50 minutes the band, who have released three LPs to date and who are releasing a fourth one very shortly, played some heavy rock/blues. The sound often reached overpowering proportions.
Every number was well received. Shortly after 9 p.m. the group went into an acoustic set which took them through to 10 p.m.
The last 45 minutes were like the first segment, in the violent rock music vein.
The fans, who bought nearly all the tickets on the first day of their sale, heard Whole Lotta Love and Moby Dick.
The band was called back for an encore and Jimmy Page and company complimented the fans on their warm applause.
They were told: “You’ve got a great little world of rock appreciation here.”
This was the only date in Scotland of the band’s present tour of the British Isles. (Nov. ’71)
