Today’s Blimp Time-Hop
Led Zeppelin did something very cool for their British fans 47 years ago. They kicked off a 12 date ‘Thank You’ tour on March 5, 1971. Zep went back to the clubs they started out in and gave fans the deal of a 1968 ticket price to show their gratitude for the early believers. A coupla bucks to see the mightiest band on the planet at the height of their powers in an intimate setting…yes please! Did you know that Led Zeppelin played the Casino Ballroom in Hampton, NH back in 1969? Click here for more on that historic show.
At the first show in Belfast, Northern Ireland, they treated the audience to the live debut of Black Dog, Rock and Roll, Stairway to Heaven, and Going to California from their upcoming fourth album that would be released the following November.
Let's sweat and groove with this performance from the Belfast show! According to the description on YouTube this is the first time they ever did Black Dog in front of a live audience.
Now you’re wicked pumped for some live Zep, aren’t ya? Well you’re in luck! “The American Led Zeppelin”, Get The Led Out returns to Aura in Portland on Thursday April 19th and tix are on-sale now. They were the first band to play at the newly renovated venue when it opened in April of last year. Blimpsters are still talking about how well they nail the experience of Led Zeppelin. Don't miss them this time!
