Led Zeppelin Live Debut Plaque - by photographer Jorgen Angel

ledzeppelin1968

Almost 45 years ago, September 7 1968, the world's greatest rock band played their very first concert. This took place at Gladsaxe Teen Club in the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark.

My name is Jorgen Angel. I was the photographer who took the pictures of this very first performance by Led Zeppelin as well as many more shots of the band in the following years. For a long time I have had the idea that this historic event deserves a commemorative plaque on the wall of the school in Gladsaxe where the concert took place. An evening also the members of the band remember. Below is the front page of Jimmy Page’s web site on September 7 2012.

A committee was formed to make this happen. Click ABOUT to see who is in the committee.

The unveiling of the plaque is of course planned to take place on September 7 this year - 45 years after the debut.

Help commemorating the debut of Led Zeppelin

We need your help funding this project. We could seek sponsorship from some big companies, but we feel that this commemorative plaque should have two "owners": The people of Gladsaxe and you, the Led Zeppelin fans around the world. When we have reached the target the Donate buttons will be made inactive. We don't want to collect more money than needed.

In return for your donation we can offer you:
Your name and country on the DONATORS page, T-shirts and photographs.

Is your donation lost if we don't reach the target? No. If needed the members of the committee will pay the rest out of their own pockets. But we feel confident that Zep fans will support this project. Please prove us right.

On behalf of the committee I thank you,
Jorgen Angel
