    Not long ago, the Miami Beach city council was considering a bill to ban rock concerts in the city. However, last week, when English group Led Zeppelin began their American tour using Miami Beach as their base for the first three concerts in surrounding cities, Mayor Chuck Hall offered them the keys to the city.

    While Led Zeppelin didn't play a concert in Miami Beach, they did play in Tampa where they drew 56,800 people setting an all-time USA concert attendance mark breaking a record held by the Beatles.

    10,000 tickets were sold in the Miami area which is a three and a half hour drive away. Where Led Zeppelin is concerned, Miami Beach loves rock and roll after all.
