Led Zeppelin | Boston Tea Party | January 23-26, 1969
Jimmy Page: After the Yardbirds . . . : Comes Led Zeppelin. By Ben Blummenberg
There’s a reason they call them British invasions. And Led Zeppelin’s three-night stand at the Boston Tea Party in 1969 was part of what seemed like an endless parade of great, classic bands who were just beginning to peak, many of them British. It was a year in which in the course of one month at one club, you could catch three nights of the Who, three nights of the Jeff Beck Group, three nights of Poco, three nights of the Bonzo Dog Band, two nights of Joe Cocker, and two nights of the Velvet Underground headlining over the Allman Brothers Band. It’s why when people refer to the long defunct Tea Party on Lansdowne Street they inevitably use the word “legendary.”
