1st Led Zeppelin North American tour ad (1969)...

Item # 702093

January 30, 1969

THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York City, Jan. 30, 1969

* Early Led Zeppelin - English rock band
* First North American tour advertisement
* 1st New York City concert - Fillmore East

Page 32 has a historic 6 x 5 1/2 inch advertisement for a very early Led Zeppelin concert at the East Fillmore venue in Manhattan. This was actually Led Zeppelin's very first North American tour and also the first time they performed in New York City. This tour was to promote there very first album. They were still unknown by most and actually were the opening act for Iron Butterfly. The date of this concert was for the day after the date of this publication. The Fillmore East is close to Greenwich Village. I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Complete with 64 pages, tabloid size, one fold along the center, nice condition.
