Led Zeppelin founder and guitarist Jimmy Page posted the photo of his previous band, The Yardbirds, on Instagram in honor of his first performance in the United States 54 years ago today.

The co-founder and the guitarist of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page had his initial experience of playing in a band with The Yardbirds. The Yardbirds was widely known for its inventive style combining blues and rhythm with rock music.

Furthermore, the band had a reputation for starting the careers of the three most iconic guitarists of all time, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck. Jimmy actually took place in The Yardbirds after Eric Clapton left in 1965.

Recently on Instagram, Jimmy Page posted a rarely-seen photo of The Yardbirds taken almost 54 years ago. On the caption of his photo, Page mentioned that he shared the photo to remember the very first time he played in a show in the United States.

Apparently, Jimmy performed with The Yardbirds on August 5, 1966, at Dayton’s Department Store in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Additionally, he stated how surreal the environment was during his first experience on stage in America.

Here’s what Jimmy Page stated on the caption of his post:

“On this day in 1966, I played Dayton’s Auditorium with The Yardbirds.

This was the first date of any American tour for me, and on this day I played with The Yardbirds on bass. In fact, although having had two visits to the States prior to this, this was the first time I ever played a show there.

The first date here in Minneapolis, Minnesota on the 5th of August was at Dayton’s Department Store, 8th Floor Auditorium and the surroundings felt quite surreal.”
