Led Zepplin Buffalo 1972

The way I remember the show is: The best concert I have ever attended. I was right hand side of the Aud. in the Blue level. Not a bad seat. Zepplin took the stage around 8:00. They opened with The Immigrant Song. As usual, the house lights were off, The stage lights flashed on and simultaneously Plant was doing that scream that starts the song. The sound was astounding. Super loud and unbelievably clear. They performed their songs so close to perfection that it was hard to believe a band doing a live show could get their sound so close to their recordings. But at the same time, the sheer volume, with their intentional improvising, created a powerful sound like none other. The whole house was literally shaking. They played just about everything off their first ,second and third album.

About half way thru the show, some jerk in the upper level started throwing M80's or cherry bombs at the stage. A couple of them blew off 30 or 40 feet up in the air. The Band played through the stupid attack of M80's. Until one exploded about 3 feet above the stage, about 5 feet from Page. That stopped the band. They walked off the stage. The house lights came back on. They were gone backstage for quite awhile. I was afraid they weren't going to come back on. Finally, they came back out. Plant told the audience that for everybody that wasen't throwing fireworks at them, they were cool. But, whoever it is that is throwing them, they better stop or they would leave. I figured that would stop them. After they started playing again, to our disbelief, the Jerk started throwing the M80's again. Then, some dude jumped up on stage and hugged Plant right in the middle of a song. Security pulled him off plant and threw him back into the crowd. Believe it or not, the same guy jumped up on the stage again a short time later. This time, security dragged him off back stage. He wasen't seen again.

Plant told the audience they wanted to play some songs off their new album. They played Misty Mountain Hop(?), Black Dog and When the Levee Breaks(?). Then they and sat down and did an acoustic set that included Going to California and Stairway to Heaven. They left the stage and then came back for two encores. Whole Lotta Love etc..One thing that sticks out in my mind is: The last song they played was that old song by Johnny Preston, Running Bear. Too Cool. Plant was up on top of a stack of Amps singing the song. All in All, they played until 1:00 A. M. !! 5 hours!! It was so loud, it was so loud, when I walked out, I couldn't hear what my friends were saying!!shot.
