Led Zeppelin Group To Play at U. of I.

The Cedar Rapids (IA) Gazette 1/15/1969

IOWA CITY - Led Zeppelin, made up of four young English

musicians who have been called one of the most exciting groups

performing in Britain, will give a concert at the University of

Iowa Jan. 15 during the group's first American tour. Their appearance

at 8 p.m. in Iowa Memorial union's main lounge on that date

will be their first concert on an American college campus.

Sponsored by the U. of I. central party committee, the Led

Zeppelin concert will take the place of a program scheduled by

Count Basie, which has been cancelled. Tickets for the concert will go

on sale Wednesday at the university box office in the

union. They are priced at $2 for general admission and $2.50 for

reserved seats.

God, I love Cat.

The same day the Iowa University campus newspaper 'Daily Iowan' ran an ad for this gig. Two days later it published an article by Arlene Faulk titled " 'Free Music' Devotees Now Facing the Music" which reported a couple caught at the Led Zeppelin concert without tickets were ejected. A favorable review was also published: "Dusk to Dawn" Concert at a glance.

I had the campus newspaper articles but not the Cedar Rapids one Cat has posted here.
