It's been nearly 50 years since Seattle's Aqua Theatre operated on Green Lake, and one of the final performances came from Led Zeppelin on May 11, 1969.


At the time, Led Zeppelin was a new band on the rise, just months before the release of Led Zeppelin II. But as you can see from their setlist, those who had tickets to the show were witnessing four soon-to-be-legends that would one day become known as the biggest band in the world.


The Aqua Theatre was initially built as part of the festivities of Seafair, and although the floating venue was shut down less than two decades after it was constructed, Seafair is still going strong in 2019! 


Happy Rocking,
