Today’s Blimp Time-Hop

Subscribe to 102.9 WBLM on

Remember that time when the singer from Led Zeppelin came to Portland, Maine? It was the first and only appearance ever by Robert Plant at the Civic Center. The historic night happened 27 years ago today, on July 13, 1990. Canadian singer, Alannah Myles opened the show. Her song, Black Velvet was a loving thank-you note to Elvis Presley was a number one hit by the time she got here. It was also rumored that she and Bobby P were dating. This also wasn’t the first time a member of Zep brought a mystical spectacle to Blimpville. Jimmy Page made a stop here on his Outrider tour in 1988 (that lasers and bow moment forever etched in our minds). Surprisingly, despite a spirited reminder by yours truly on the BLM airwaves that “Robert Plant, the friggin’ Golden God was coming to OUR town” the show was not a sellout. How does that happen? It’s still a perplexing question that vexes me to this day.

Anyway, the Civic Center looked packed to us by showtime even though it wasn’t sold out and Robert Plant showed us why he is the greatest with this incredible set list!
