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.

a few more memories from this show 4/20/77

I wasn't smoking dope yet so I trust my memory of this Zep conncert...standing tightly packed on the plaza waiting for the doors to open noticing a spot where no one was standing and making our way over to discover a large patch of fresh vomit that looked like dinner and smelled like alcohol...approaching the turnstyle and watching a guy without a ticket shove the security person taking tickets out of his way and quickly disappearing inside...quickly making our way down the steps onto the floor of the colisium and not stopping until we were about 20 ft from the stagefront...seeing Jimmy in a white suit in the dim light grabbing a D chord on the 12 string neck before the lights blazed on to open the show with The Song Remains the Same...noticing that Jimmy, Robert, John Paul and Bonzo were all wearing sunglasses on that opening song...picking my feet up off the floor once the show started and not falling as we were so tightly packed...feeling a nice pair of breast being pressed into my back as were so tightly packed...John Paul Jones' grand piano solo in No Quarter including a few phrases of the Nutrocker from ELP's Pictures at an Exhibition album...a wet T-shirt from the crowd landing on Jimmy Page's Telecaster during Ten Years Gone with Jimmy casually tossing it aside...In My Time of Dying as loud, piercing and painful...surprised as Jimmy jumped up off his chair and we were suddenly into the onslaught of Kashmir...thinking the show had already peaked, Achille's Last Stand took us over the top...for the Trampled Underfoot encore it appeared to me that as the roadie handed Jimmy the cable to plug into his Les Paul the roadie neglected to take the Marshall amp off of standbye and all I could hear was keys, drums and vocals...no guitar...when the song ended I thought it looked like Pagey was glaring angrily as he handed his guitar to the roadie and the roadie giving a sheepish apologetic shrug back...my friend Jim's parents picking us up after the show and then breaking down on the freeway on our way out of Cincinnati...Cincinnati police officer bringing us a few bottles of transmission fluid to get us on our way...the cop throwing the empty plastic bottles over a barrier wall next to the freeway...getting back to Piqua and waking my little brother Chuck up to tell him about the show until I woke my mom up and she yelled at us to go to sleep!
