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]

This was the most memorable concert I have ever been to. A friend of mine and I as well as thousands of others braved 17 degree Oklahoma weather camping out at the OKC fairgrounds two months before the concert to buy tickets. They had a strict limit of 4 tickets per person, so we were the designated buyers.We camped out in sleeping bags the night before and partied all night long. The OKC police were actually pretty cool about the whole thing. Their was quite a bit of grass being passed around but as long as everyone behaved there was no problem. The next morning when tickets went on sale, it was pretty chaotic. There were so many people in line that we actually had to pass each other overhead to get to the ticket window----but it was SO worth it. Those tickets were worth their weight in gold, literally. The night of the concert, myself and my friends lucky enough to go were offered as much as $100 apiece for our tickets. I don't think I would have sold mine for $500! Anyway, it will go down as the best concert I or my friends have ever been to. Zeppelin, in my opinion, is the best rock group of all time!
