The Yale Bowl in New Haven had a busy decade in the 1970s. In addition to the football games played there by both Yale University and the NFL’s New York Giants (this was the Giants official home-away-from-home while Giants Stadium was being built), there were also a bunch of great rock concerts. Legendary acts like Chicago, Yes, Grand Funk Railroad, Grateful Dead, Eric Clapton and others rocked the Bowl.
But perhaps the biggest act to play the Yale Bowl? Led Zeppelin in 1970. Today we look back at that historic show that happened 50 years this summer.
