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]

Best birthday present ever.

My friend and co-worker Ed bought tickets to the show which happened to be on my 24th birthday! We both worked at the 300 Bowl in Pontiac and somehow managed to get a Saturday night off. We had reserved seats not too far up (our noses didn't bleed) but a ways away. It was the first time I had ever seen a big screen as I remember there were maybe four hanging from the ceilings in different spots. The show was beyond description with the crazy people on the floor and the rock and roll angels on the stage! In two years I went from seeing Bob Seger playing "Turn the Page" at a college bar in East Lansing, spending a fabulous birthday helping set an attendance record at the Silverdome with the BEST BAND EVER on earth to watching Bob Seger again floating in to Martin US 131 Dragway in a hot air balloon at the Michigan Jam. Good times but I wish I could remember more of it. I do know I sure had fun. Thanks again ED!
