Kunke1:  Glad you enjoyed all of these postings!  This website listing is probably the most extensive collection of information associated with this (one and only) October 17, 1969 Carnegie Hall two-show evening concert played by Led Zeppelin.  I will likely plan an extra special posting to this website for Led Zeppelin fans in a few weeks when the concert has its official 50th Anniversary on October 17, 2019!!

Contrast the new building with its attached residential tower with the former original building...

This was the final concert that Led Zeppelin played in London (at the Lyceum) before flying to NYC to play Carnegie Hall five days later on October 17, 1969.

those Schaeffer concerts were so good - great seats inside, or the huge rocks outside and plenty of great shows. 1st time seeing Aerosmith live w/ Ted Nugent /Stranglehold as the opener was a fantastic show. Had tix to Bad Co. but had to start a new job that night loading soda trucks, just my luck, Jimmy Page played a few numbers w/ Bad Co.

Thanks for the reminder.

1969 was a pretty good year for BB King - Opening for acts like Zeppelin and going on tour with The Rolling Stones near the end of the year. I wonder how often BB & Zeppelin crossed paths during these early years of touring. Wish I had a time machine!

worked in a deli before my real job (night loader) and remember putting up these Schaeffer ads... Schaeffer was BY FAR our best seller in the 2 delicatessen's I worked - the boss' son was a Rock fan and our deli would get the ads in advance of the shows being advertised and would run to get us tix while I worked... his father/the owner, never knew!! The bands we saw on the cheap, damn, Hot Tuna, James Gang, Todd Rundgren/Utopia, Dave Mason..... Feelin alright!!

THANKS, drowan
