Press Review: Hit-Packed Zeppelin Throbs at Myriad

Led Zeppelin throbbed with a vengeance Sunday night at the Myriad Convention center.
Britain’s notorious heavy-metal virtuosos masterfully assaulted the capacity crowd with a hit-packed program accentuated with lengthy and frequent solos.
Zeppelin hasn’t been on the road in two years. Oklahoma City was, however, their second date on a current US tour.

The group is remarkably tight musically and appears in as good form as ever, searing and thunderously loud. It’s brutal, aggressive and embodies a paganistic rawness. That “aura” surrounds them completely.

Zeppelin fans know what the group is capable of and demand it Sunday with almost masochistic pleasure.
The first hour and a half of the program began as a warm-up for the deafening, spontaneous musical offerings to come.
Lead singer Robert Plant from his recent bout of tonsillitis, brought forth the Rain Song (?) with driving power.

He showed no signs of difficulty with other pulsating selections from the group’s Physical Graffiti album. Plant acted the bona fide super star. With shirt torn to the navel, he sashayed across the stage like a prize winning rooster.

But lead guitarist and the group’s founder, Jimmy Page, had his moment to prove why he is considered one of the best musicians in rock.
A spectacular stage show came with No Quarter, which featured keyboardist John Paul Jones engulfed in a multicolored fog which rolled over the stage and into the audience.

Green fluorescent lasers all the while flashed oscillating oval forms on the ceiling.  The crowd cheered as it had done almost continuously since the start of the concert.

Zeppelin continued with Ten Years Gone and went into a second half program which spotlighted solos by Page and Jones.
Drummer John Bonham performed an exhausting but stupendous solo. He provides the “heavy” to the “metal”.

The spirit of Led Zeppelin is, musically, “to let it all out”. It gave all three hours worth to a well-pleased audience Sunday.  [P.Upton / Daily Oklahoman/4/4/77]

1977 okc show

Was 16 in 77, also did the fair grounds camp out with 2 of my friends. Was the wildest show and greastest show that I can ever recall in okc/ bible belt usa.All the grown ups didnt want them to play there, even are pastor talked about it in church that week, dont think we ever told any of those friends that we even went. Ticket prices were like 3 times the price of any show that we had ever saw. But what a night, our seats were top row, strait out from the stag. The smoke was so heavy at times all we saw was colors of light threw the fog. At one point even before the house lights went down, I looked both ways down are row and every one had a joint in there hand.All ways wounder who kept passing them are way, and in all the years of going to shows, never again saw a place go as crazy as the fans did that night, and it was the hole show.We had already waited extra few days, so an hour before they took the stage, the place was just a buzz.(not the same kinda buzz as the one from the smoke) And of course Dad and Mom waited up wanting to here all the news. Mom thought I was sick cause my eyes were all red. The 70s were a great time to be a teen, lots of big groups came threw the city and Dallas.Funny, now Im 50 years old and James Taylor is about as wild of a show I have been to this last year.Guess I can't use wild in the same sentance as Baby James. (-: And Foosball is alive and going strong. Find a place in your town, and play... Gary
