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.

Cincinnati Show #2

We attended this performance as high school seniors. Aware of the "riots" the night before during the sound check, we were well aware of the potential for danger. Plus the Reds were playing the Dodgers next door in a sold out doubleheader so it was a madhouse on the riverfront. I remember after the band burst onto stage wearing sunglasses, Robert Plant asked the standing room only crowd to settle down and not move around saying the concert would go better if we did so. As he walked to the side of the stage, we could hear him say somewhat under his breath, "I bet you won't." The audience took his advice and after 2 more songs, he said with a smile, "See, I told you the show would go better!" Zeppelin proceeded to play 3 hours non stop. Plant said this was their acoustical set and I remember them sitting on stools 4 in a row performing their slower stuff. Also remember during "Moby Dick" how amazing it was seeing John Bonham playing and slapping the crash symbols with his bear hands. That was 30 years ago and I've yet to see a better concert. Thank you gentlemen!
