1969 - Led Zeppelin - Los Angeles, CA/Whisky A Go Go

Hi Deborah, just to add that this event marked the first appearance of Led Zeppelin in Los Angeles, and they were accompanied by Alice Cooper.

This is from an Alice Cooper fansite:

"It’s been 42 years and nine months since the original Alice Cooper band shared the bill at LA's iconic Whisky A Go Go with a young British band called Led Zeppelin. Now Alice is doing a special club gig there on Thursday, September 15 (2011)"

"(...) the Whisky gig we did with Led Zeppelin is something we all talk about to this day".

They were billed as: "Led Zeppelin and Alice Cooper - featuring: Jimmy Page, formerly of The Yardbirds"

Jimmy Page is my guitar hero!

On this day, 17 January 1969, Led Zeppelin I, the band's debut album, was released in the US, coinciding with the band's first headlining US concert tour. It was to peak at No.10 on the US chart, and at No.6 in the UK. The RIAA in the US has now certified it as having sold over 10 million copies in the US alone.

To help publicise the band in America before their debut tour, the band's manager Peter Grant sent white label advance copies of the album to key FM radio stations. Zeppelin initially played as the support act for bands such as Iron Butterfly and Vanilla Fudge (both of which were also signed to Atlantic Records) and Country Joe & the Fish. However, as the tour progressed, it became apparent that Led Zeppelin was easily outshining the headline acts, continually blowing them off stage!
