Night the Stage Collapsed

This was my first Zeppelin concert and at 17 years old still remains one of the best in my life. The stage did in fact collapse under the weight of some overly exuberate fans trying to get closer to the band. Probably 20 or so did get up on stage and after moving several feet towards the retreating Plant and Page, almost as if in slow motion (maybe that was just me) the stage began to sink starting in the front center. Plant and Page ended up standing on top of the quite large sound monitors to finish the concert with the entire front center of the stage now missing and the empty space now filled with fans. I remember only one more song being played after the collapse but I may be mistaken after nearly 40 years. Page and Plant continued playing almost as if the collapse was part of the show, which of course it wasen't. In later years, had this happened, the entire concert would have been cancelled and lawsuits would have been filed before the last fan had left the Garden. Now that concert was what music was all about. Music and only the music.
Great Times!!
