Zepplin turns out Three River Stadium In 1973

Over 40 of us from Columbus , Ohio made the trip to see our Idols do their Houses of the Holy Tour in TRS in july 1973. Some of us drove ,some hitchhiked, me included but all of us got there, ready to party and rock with this iconic band we listened to every seconds we were conscious. Some had tickets some didn't...i did not. it was a sold out show but there were tickets to be had for the right price. i was so lucky that day because while high on excellent canadian MDA and throwing a Frisbee with friends wondering how i was gonna get it i was running after a overthrown frisbee and to my amazement and joy, on the ground where the frisbee fell was ! nice ticket laying on the blacktop and believe me i wasted no time scooping it it up and jumping and screaming for joy. I was now going to see my dream band. by the time the tens of thousands of people with no tickets or money realized they were letting people in hundreds climbed and pulled, shook and hung from a steel gate that was blocking a ramp to enter the stadium but not for long....these drug fueled and Zeppelin hungry concert attenders litterly ripped the 30 foot high by 35 foot wide steel gate right out of the ceiling and thousands got in for free on it really made no difference that i found the ticket because i never even presented it to a ticket taker because of the stampede thru the downed gate. wow it was intense...55 gallon water drums surrounded the main floor so those above could not jump down...many were hurt doing just that though. they played a show to remember and i was then and now grateful to have made it.
