Zep plays to largest audience ever for single-act rock show

The attendance at Led Zeppelin's Silverdome concert tonight triumphantly shattered the band's own previous attendance record, a number unmatched by any other group in the last four years.

The audience of 77,229 at the Silverdome is the largest audience for a single-act concert. The previous record was 56,800 set in May 1973 at a Zeppelin show in Tampa Bay. On that historic day, the group surpassed the Beatles' 1965 attendance record of 55,000. Making a sum of £467,000 tonight, Led Zeppelin has finished the first leg of its 11th tour of North America. Upon returning, the band will tour the southern United States, beginning May 18 in Birmingham, Ala. [AP]

Silverdome concert 1977

I was lucky enough to see Led Zeppelin at The Silverdome in 1977. They played for 3 hours starting at around 9.00 and finishing at 12.00. I went with a bus tour company out of London Ontario called Music Mann tours and they had about 40 bus loads of people going to this show. One of the buses in front of us, someone had thrown a joint out the window at the border so they started pulling all the buses over and we had to be searched for drugs. One guy on my bus took his bag of pot and took a 20 dollar bill and rolled it up and dumped his pot into his pocket., so when they asked us to empty our pockets, of course it went all over the counter and customs charged the guy and he got sent back to the Canadian side and missed the show. Dumb ass wasn't he? I payed back then 45.00 for my package which included bus there and back and ticket for the show.

To hear Bonham play a 15 minute drum solo during Moby Dick, the Silverdome ranged like thunder. I remembered people where pushing down on the floor in front of the stage and Robert Plant stopped and said"There's no need to push, we are all friends here. I am so glad that I lived that time period when I did. Anyways, Led Zeppelin, you where the greatest and always will be forever. Bill Atkinson.
