Press: LED ZEPPELIN press man BP Fallon was beaten up during Zeppelin's first concert at Green's Playhouse, Glasgow, on Sunday night. The band were playing two nights in Glasgow, and there had been some confusion over tickets - plus some forgeries in circulation.

Fallon was trying to sort things out, and approached someone who he'd been told had been selling tickets outside the theatre. "I'm not big enough to be aggressive, even if I wanted to be," said Fallon on Monday, "but I went up to him and said I understood there'd been some confusion about tickets." The guy and two friends jumped on BP and beat and kicked him. He was cut and bruised, but on Monday was "hobbling around" without serious injury. "Frankly, I'm glad I didn't get a knife in my back," he said.

Glasgow police took away a number of tickets, and were planning to keep a close watch on people selling them outside the theme on Monday. On Sunday night, some people paid £5 for £1 tickets to see Zeppelin. [12/72]

I remember my mates queuing

I remember my mates queuing all night to get the tickets. I lived nearby so my job was to bring them flasks of tea and sandwiches about 6 in the morning. They got the tickets but all their tickets were for December 4th.. so I went on my own. I was in the 3rd row almost centre stage. I recall the cymbals of Rock n Roll opening the 3 hours + set. I thought to myself if the cymbals are this loud what will the guitar and bass be like..a wall of sound literally knocked me of my feet. I think I was deaf for about 3 days! Amazing acoustic set in the middle of the performance with a stunning version of Going to California and Battle of Evermore (?). I remember Robert Plant asking if there were any girls in the audience who wanted to backstage at break time specifically for John Bohnham...maybe too shy to ask himself. The last encore was "Thank You".. I remember reading in the "Hammer of the Gods" that there was trouble after that show between fans and the roadies but I find that hard to imagine as the band had almost god like status in Glasgow.
