Video: Led Zeppelin Play One of Their First Concerts in 1969
Jimmy Page with this 10-year-old Tele in March 1969.
Ever want to know what an early Led Zeppelin concert experience was like? We've got you covered.
Below, you can check out some vintage, high-quality video from a March 17, 1969, Led Zeppelin TV appearance.
In the US, Led Zeppelin's self-titled debut album was only three months old — and it wouldn't be released in the UK for another two weeks.
The band — Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham — was on a tour of the UK and Scandinavia when they visited TV-Byen studios in Gladsaxe, Denmark, to play four tracks from the new album, all of which you can hear below: “Communication Breakdown,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” and “How Many More Times.”
Page is playing his 1959 Fender Telecaster, a gift from Jeff Beck and a holdover from Page's Yardbirds days. Page fans are in luck, because there's lots of close-up camera work during his guitar solos, including his enjoyable “Communication Breakdown” Tele-shred workout. Enjoy!
