News report: Zeppelin fans cause 2nd Cincy riot
For the second time in three days police had to battle fans of the British rock group "Led Zeppelin," but police doubled their manpower and kept trouble at a minimum here yesterday.

An 18-year-old Dayton fan plunged 20 feet to a concrete ramp while trying to scale a wall, police said. Stanley Blair was reported in fair condition at Cincinnati hospital. Asst City Manager Henry Sandman told the Cincinnati City Council that 80 police officers, paid for by the Cincinnati Coliseum, will be used hereafter to prevent outbreaks of trouble.

Zeppelin 1977

I was 12 years old that year and was already a huge fan. I still have my yearbook photo from that year in which I wore a Zeppelin t-shirt. I had three older brothers and one of them had a killer stereo that I vividly remember cranking out Physical Graffiti that year as it was my favorite album at the time. I had asked my parents(not exactly the rock and roll types) if I could go to the first show and they had said no but I was still nagging at them that night to go to the second show. Unfortunately the fans made the news by breaking the glass doors trying to crash their way in thus crushing any chance I may have had. I remember someone telling me a story that the crowd had thrown a three-wheeled motorcycle off the bridge onto Fort Washington Way. Does anyone know if this is true? Anyway, I had a teacher the next year in 8th grade who also worked as an usher for the Coliseum and the Stadium and ran into him like 15 years later at a Bengals game and asked him who he thought was the best artist he had ever seen while working as an usher and he said by far it was Led Zeppelin and he didnt even like rock music. Hearing that just made it hurt all over again that I had to miss that tour. I did get to see The Who two years later and what a story that was. Oh well I did see the Page/Plant Tour so I guess that will have to do for my Zepp memories but Ohh what a set list I missed in '77 that week.
