About The Event
Our first show of 2019 is going to go down like a "Led" balloon. Join us on Sunday, January 6th, to ring in the new year and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the debut album from Led Zeppelin, originally released in January 1969.
In the summer of 68, Jimmy Page was the last remaining blues guitar virtuoso in the Yardbirds, after both Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton left. The band then completely collapsed, leaving Jimmy alone, with a name and a tour schedule. Pulling together John Paul Jones, whom he had worked with prior, and then recruiting Robert Plant who in turn brought along John Bonham. As "The New Yardbirds" they played their first gigs before moving on to a Scandinavian tour in September 1968, where they changed their name to Led Zeppelin (the "a" dropped so Americans wouldn't mispronounce it). Later, they landed in LA on Christmas Day 1968, kicking off a 36 date non-stop whirlwind tour that coincided with the drop of the eponymous first album on January 12, 1969. By the time February 1969 rolled in, Led Zeppelin was planted in the Billboard 100, and was already becoming synonymous with hard rock.
Rolling Stone ranked the album number 29 on their 500 Greatest Albums of all time. VH1 named Led Zeppelin the 44th-greatest album of all time. In 2004, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
