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 Zep at Silverdome 1977

This was my first concert and man was the bar set high! 35 years later I can still recall that evening remarkably clearly, no drugs and maybe only 6 beers that night has helped preserve the memories I guess. Highlights included Robert Plant telling the floor crowd to stop swishing back and forth, bottle rockets shooting from one side of the floor to the other, laser light show during No Quarter that lost something in the translation on the inflated Silverdome ceiling, John Bonham drum solo during Moby Dick, Jimmy Page using celo bow, people jumping through a bon fire that was built on the main floor, Stairway to Heavan, and at the very end after the lights came on and people started to leave, Zep came back on stage and started into Trampled Under Foot!!! Everyone on the floor went running back to the stage, almost gave the song a new meaning!!!
I have been to too many shows to count since and nothing has ever come close to the spectical on display that April night in Pontiac, Mi.
