Led Zeppelin Played Here

LedZeppelinPlayedHereFINAL Play Button

Shrouded in a cloud of mystery, the question of an enigmatic concert by Led Zeppelin during their first month in the US remains unsolved. With no surviving posters, handbills, or even a single photograph, we may never uncover the truth behind a performance on January 20, 1969 in a suburban Maryland gymnasium, in front of 50 confused teenagers, while President Richard Nixon was celebrating his first inauguration nearby. Did it really happen? Or is it just a “Rock-and-Roll Rashomon” re-imagining of history? Featuring interviews with rock writers, musicians, and fans, Led Zeppelin Played Here draws out speculations from those claiming they were there witnessing history that night.
