Detroit Olympia

Thank you to this site's comment monitors for including most of my previous post. As the night advanced towards the 1:00 am City of Detroit curfew, it must have been a titanic confrontation between Zep's manager Peter Grant and Grand Funk's manager Terry Reid! As it was, Led Zeppelin was able to perform their complete set, but I can remember the show not getting out until around 1:35 am. The Detroit Fire Marshall on site enforcing the curfew must have been deeply unhappy! I personally think Grand Funk, and their manager, should have been somewhat grateful for the local exposure and not tried to endanger the featured artists set length. I think it showed the band's as well as the manager's inexperience. There were no curfews at the Atlanta Pop Festival where Grand Funk Railroad hit it big. My all time favorite Led Zeppelin show was June 12th 1973 at Cobo Hall. Cobo had much better acoustics than Olympia.
