Today in 1969 Led Zeppelin filmed their only live TV appearance in the UK, on BBC 2’s How Late It Is. They were a last-minute replacement and they performed “Communication Breakdown”. No longer in the vaults, the tape is believed to have been erased.
Also today, in 1970, a Led Zeppelin concert at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, BC drew nearly 19,000 attendees, breaking the previous record there held by the Beatles. This show, only the second ever Led Zeppelin concert to be bootlegged, can be found (although not the complete concert) under the bootleg titles Mudslide (on vinyl) and Ultimate Mudslide (on CD).
Setlist: We’re Gonna Groove, I Can’t Quit You Baby, Dazed and Confused, Heartbreaker, White Summer/Black Mountain Side, Since I’ve Been Loving You, Organ solo/Thank You, What Is and What Should Never Be, Moby Dick, How Many More Times, Communication Breakdown, Whole Lotta Love.
