Press Review Excerpt: In Friday night’s open air concert, lead vocalist Robert Plant sounded like someone had crossed his speaker wires and hooked them up to the radio of the blue Mustang in the back of the stage. Anything louder than a whisper reeked of tinny static. Musically, Jimmy Page was flawless but I’ve never listened to anything quite so boring. “White Summer” was an excellent example of music to cure insomnia. Led Zeppelin is a gutty blues band which had everything but guts.

Drummer John Bonham – like Page – gave credible solo performances which generally lacked anything worth listening to. John Paul Jones, the group’s bassist was actually pretty good, but it’s kind of hard to really get into a bass player.

You can’t blame Zeppelin for not really getting into their stuff because most of the audience wasn’t even listening. A youth who attended both the Atlanta and Woodstock festivals this summer explained the situation. “They didn’t actually play that badly – the crowd is what turned me off. The people here don’t really dig music, they just come because they think it makes them cool. In Woodstock, we had the real people – I’ve never seen so many ungrateful “teenyboppers” and just plain jerky kids.” [Sun-Tattler / Aug. 1969]

I knew I saw them here,but I could never find anyone that could back me up! Very hard to remember alot from those dazes!
I know it was a great OUTDOOR under the stars show,very small time looking back but it was very early in their career.Probably only 2000 or so people! I can't say for sure but it wasn't a vast arena.
I saw a lot of GREAT bands there like,The Airplane,Grand Funk,BB King,and I'm sure I am forgetting Many Great Bands!
From what I can remember I can safely say it was a 5 STAR show!
Thanks for the memories!

I was 14 when I saw them there. Great show. There was a rumor that Robert Plant fell off the stage that night and broke his arm while trying to hit a security guard who was harassing someone in the crowd but we could never confirm that. I was too far away to be sure. Maybe someone could shed some light on that. Pirate's World was a great venue and I saw a lot of other good bands there including Fleetwood Mac, Grand Funk Railroad, Chambers Brothers, Bloodrock, and West, Bruce and Lang.
