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 73'

I was 14 and dressed in a bright yellow long backless velour dress with navy blue trim. We arrived early and Paul & I quickly lost our group of Ukiah friends. We worked our way close to the stage and spread out our tapestry on the lawn. I can remember all but an hour of the day… A couple, a few years older than us asked if they could share our tapestry and when we hesitated, they pulled out a mayo jar filled with hash as an offering. I passed out somewhere after the tubes performance and was awaken as led zeppelin got on stage. I remember the joy, the nudity, the love, and the music. I can still see the young man holding up the sign advertising clear light windowpane, his strong bare chest, and his wild kinky dark blond hair. Someone was dressed in a costume swinging large long cloth balls and a penis. The last encore was Stairway to Heaven where they released thousands of white doves! What great memories to have. This was my first outdoor concert and I’m sure the experience shaped my views during my early teen years. I am still grateful.
