An original Led Zeppelin concert poster from August 24, 1969 for a show at the Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum in Jacksonville, FL.
This concert advertising placard captures the British giants touring off their first album, “Led Zeppelin,” in the summer of 1969, all the while recording their second LP between tour stops.
This boxing-style cardboard Led Zeppelin concert poster is an oddball because most Zep posters of this era were printed on paper, not thick cardboard like this, and carried a psychedelic design. And tell me… how often have you seen a vintage, hot pink Led Zeppelin concert poster!??
Miami Art Printing of Hialeah, Florida printed this 1969 Led Zeppelin window card, to the size of approximately 14 by 22 inches.
Here’s exactly what this poster says, from top to bottom: Premier Attractions Proudly Presents In Concert Led Zeppelin (and) Cat Mother & the All Night Newsboys. (At the) Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum, Jacksonville, Fla. Sunday, August 24th – 8:00 PM. Tickets: $4.00 – $5.00 – $6.00. Tickets available at Auditorium Box Office, Coliseum Ticket Office (and) Henning Park Ticket Office.
Notice that Cat Mother and the All Night Newsboys opened this gig for Zeppelin, the same way they did for the Jimi Hendrix Experience at this time.
Myself, I first saw the mighty Zeppelin in concert back in 1972, but not in the ’60s, I regret to say. However, I avidly collect posters like this and will pay top doller!! for this poster – or any early, scarce Led Zeppelin concert memorabilia of this ilk.
