New Plaque Commissioned To Mark Site Of Led Zeppelin's First Gig

Led Zeppelin will be honored at the site of their first ever show, which took place in the Danish town of Gladsaxe. The show went down on September 7, 1968, and now the rock legends will be honored on the 45th anniversary of the event.

The band performed at the Teen Club in Gladsaxe as part of a weekly Saturday night dance.

Roughly 1000 teens turned up that night, which was a common draw for the club, according to Zep's website. The band were billed as the New Yardbirds at the time.

The plaque, funded by a Danish group dubbed the "Initiative Group for the selection of Led Zeppelin's world premiere in Gladsaxe," will be placed at the site of the show.

In an official statement, the group writes: "45 years after being given Led Zeppelin a place of honor at the school where it all began, there will be a plaque for the rock historic event. The plaque will be put up at Gladsaxe School, which Egegaard School was called. It will of course be celebrated, and it happens Saturday, September 7, 2013, at Gladsaxe School, where the plaque will be unveiled."
