Led Zeppelin at Auditorium Arena

Led Zeppelin made the first American debut in Colorado at the Auditorium Arena. On December 26, 1968, Led Zeppelin opened for Vanilla Fudge. This was Led Zeppelin's huge break though performance internationally. The audience was prepared for a more bluesy performance but Led Zeppelin performed fully in mainstream rock. Led Zeppelin was originally not going to play at this venue. They figured that they sold out all of the tickets so they didn't need to add another act. The crowd did not know that Led Zeppelin was performing until they came onto the stage.   -written by Kathryn Gaskin
