UCI Led Zepplin concert

I was the concert promoter for Zepplin's show at UCI in Crawford Hall. For the record we didn't 'oversell' the hall. We could never prove it but assumed Zepplin'd management or someone connected to them did in LA or through Capitol. We strictly limited tickets printed. To our shock 1-2 thousand (at least) showed up with tickets we did not authorize and were understandably pissed when we wouldn't/couldn't let them in. Crawford was jammed shoulder to shoulder. I was on stage with the band viewing all the mayhem. Page, Bonham and Plant were a bit uptight and a lot arrogant as I remember, and IT was barely controlled chaos. And yes to be sure a lot of drugs were going down. The OC tac squad was called out to keep order outside as the doors were rushed a couple of times. It WAS a fantastic set. We had NO plans for a second show. Besides, we got ripped off by Cole and his associates as they demanded a different formula for percentage of gate than we had agreed upon and literally left with duffel bags stuffed with cash. My in-person protests at Capitol went nowhere. As I recall it cost UCI and the Associated Students some$10K and we never saw a dime. Despite that we had Michaels back for an outdoors concert that was a bit hairy also but we managed. By comparison the Chambers Brothers concert was a piece of cake...and great. Long live rock 'n roll.
