Handbill for the inaugural edition of 'Pop Proms,' 5 x 16.5, featuring performances by Led Zeppelin and The Who amongst the week of concerts June 29 to July 5, 1969, at London's Royal Albert Hall. Horizontal creases and scattered light creasing, otherwise fine condition.
Fans refused to leave at the conclusion of Zepp's set, and despite the power being turned off to the stage, after a plea from Robert Plant to restore power, the band launched into 'Long Tall Sally,' as the crowd erupted. As a reviewer observed, ‘the stage became thick with paper aeroplanes thrown from the boxes along with a ticker tape reception of handbills and balloons and petals of the flowers from the foot of the stage. The Zeppelin truly deserved the acclaim. It is boggling that in a matter of months they have achieved such a high degree of musicianship and become one of the biggest crowd pullers around.
