Jethro Tull was the main support act and San Bernardino-area group Trane (aka The Caretakers) was the 2nd support  act.

Swing Auditorium was an indoor arena located on E Street in San Bernardino, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. Named for Senator Ralph E. Swing, the arena was constructed at the grounds of the National Orange Show in 1949. It had a capacity of approx. 7,000 patrons. The venue altered in the 1960s, becoming a prominent rock arena for the West Coast. On September 11, 1981, the auditorium was irreparably damaged when it was struck by a small plane, following which the auditorium had to be destroyed.

On an historical note Sharon Tate and four others were slaughtered the night of this concert and discovered the next day. Page said Zeppelin and crew were staying in bungalows behind Chateau Marmont  when the murders happened and scared the hell out of everybody.

The band promptly moved out of the hills and into the Hyatt House in town.  Also, The Beatles Abbey Road Album cover was photographed on the afternoon of August 8, 1969.
