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]

Led Zeppelin 4/30/77 Pontiac Silverdome show

We were in college back then, my friend Mark and I were at the Silverdome show. Talk about mayhem. You didn't want to be on the main floor, people were blowing off fireworks and crazy stuff like that. One girl lost an eye from the fireworks, it was widely covered on the news. Back then concerts did the festival seating on the main floor where it was first come - first served and you were on your feet all night, they did not even provide chairs. Promoters treated the fans like herds of cattle back then. However, Zeppelin put on a memorable performance. One part of the show that I never forgot was when Page played White Summer and this green laser light triangle surrounded him during the song and would spin around real fast. Our seats were up in the rafters and I remember we paid some scalper $20 for $10 seats, but they didn't have Ticketmeaster back in the 70s. I also remember driving to the Silverdome in the snow to buy tickets for the show. They had us packed in so tight that you could pick up your feet and you wouldn't fall down. We were in line for hours and didn't even get tickets.
