News Report: 50,000 See Led Zeppelin in Bay City

The British rock group Led Zeppelin drew 50,000 rock fans who paid $320,000 at Kezar Stadium last weekend.

Although the 2 ½ hour show Saturday was 6,000 short of capacity, listeners blanketed the football field and stands. Hundreds of others heard the music for free from rooftops in the surrounding neighborhood.

A month ago, Led Zeppelin grossed $309,000 to shatter the Beatles’ mark in 1965.

Organizers said the group netted better than $1,000 per minute during the show here. It was the second large rock concert in a week at Kezar.

The only casualties reported were some bad drug trips, a broken leg and a security guard accidentally wounded with his own revolver.

More than 250 cars were towed away from illegal parking areas around the stadium, police reported.

Kezar

I was very young, very impressionable, mezmerized and there was no turning back after this show. The Tubes, Lee Michaels, Roy Harper and Led Zeppelin. About 3 hours of perfection that day from the band. This was the tour for Houses of The Holy. I believe it was the first un-official Day on The Green in the bay area put on by Bill Graham presents.

People partied all night in Golden Gate Park waiting to get in. They let us in very early with blankets, ice chests etc... in those days. People were very polite about your space on the green. It was great! I can't remember all the songs but remember Jimmy and the bow, the theremin box, Robert and the white dove. They were grand what more can I say.
