12/26/68-Led Zeppelin Make Their U.S. Debut


via RIP magazine and billboard.com

After a handful of dates in the their homeland, Led Zeppelin ventured across the Pond and snared the opening slot on a North American Tour for Vanilla Fudge. Their debut album wouldn't even be released for a few more weeks and it's safe to say not many in the audience even knew who they were. According to the article, tickets cost just $6.00 and Zeppelin played a short set of about eight covers ­and only a few original tracks.

It was clear from those that were there, that this band was destined to rise to fame and glory. And to think, it all started with their introduction by promoter Barry Fey  saying:

 "Ladies and gentleman, please welcome, direct from England for their North America debut, Led Zeppelin!"
