I think this was The Night the Stage Collapsed. I'd like to get confirmation. Before Thank You, lots of people jumped on stage and were not evicted. Plant and Page appeared to stand on top of monitors to be seen over the heads of the audience, who were crowded all around. Then the stage split down the middle. It happened slowly, so no one seemed to have gotten hurt. The crowd abandoned the stage, but there was a big hole front and center. Roadies moved equipment away from the edges, then the band returned for one last song. There was a piece of stage floor extending over the hole, too inviting for Plant to ignore. While the band played an intense but then yet unreleased song, Robert jumped up and down on the springboard singing "Lonely lonely lonely lonely time."

From that time forward, one's Led pedigree was determined by the answer to the question "were you there when the stage broke?"
