Led Zeppelin Played Detroit’s Grande Ballroom 44 Years Ago

It was January of 1969 that Led Zeppelin made their first appearance in Detroit at the infamous Grande Ballroom.  Rock’s next revolution was well under way and the Grande was a regular stop for many of the world’s most iconic rock musicians.

You can read more about the Grande’s history and preview a documentary about the venue here.

Jaan Uhelszki, a writer and editor for  Detroit’s Creem Magazine was a spectator at that first show and wrote an awesome article about the experience and offers some insightful history about Zeppelin and it’s predecessor The New Yarbirds.

The article is posted here at the website of UDetroit.
