Setlist included "How Many More Times," it was my favorite LZep song then, and remains the same today.

During Moby Dick, the rest of the band left for about a half-hour. When they came back, Plant was swigging on a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Page was in a pink suit.

What can I say my older brother Jim(Nineteen) took me to see Led Zeppelin I was a little over fifteen at the time. I remember that Led Zeppelin played a long time, and that they were the best damn band in the world. I also remember it being really cold in the Coliseum, I think that they were holding some kind of skating show there with plywood over the ice rink floor. I also remember that the chairs were made of metal so it seemed even colder. I also recall that about forty people(Hippies) came in holding hands and filled up the rest of the row were setting in. There were people with video camera's running up and down the aisle, and people taking pictures, although I never seen any from this show? I was so impressed with the band they really rocked the place!!!!!!! Jimmy played his guitar with his violin bow, Robert was swinging his microphone at a cop in front of the stage I thought he was going to hit the cop for sure, John Paul play a really cool organ solo, and John Bonham beat the S**T out of his drums with his bare hands playing Moby Dick. I will never forget that night ever.

I attended this concert . It was phenominal . They played intensely for approximately two hours , took a short break , then played for another two ! The seats on the floor were on top of an ice rink ,probably covered with plywood . We were cold, but we rocked the house with one of the all time great rock and roll bands . People were jumping up and down on top of metal chairs ! It was my younger brother's first concert . Wow , what a memory !

I always thought they played their first Indianapolis show in 1969. I remember that all of my friends were going to Muncie to see Three Dog Night, but I was headed to Indianapolis. I was on the floor in row K, seat 21. As the other reviews state, it was a long show. What I didn't see was any mention of the last encore. There must have been only 700 fans still in the building when they came back out. i've never forgotten it because they played for another half-hour and none of the songs were on their records. It wasn't until the BBC sessions were released that I heard them again. Most were old blue's standards and british bar songs. 43 years have passed and I've seen hundreds of shows, but nothing will ever compare with that night. I just watched Celebration Day and decided to look up when the show was.

I was 16 years old and had just gotten my drivers licence 4 days earlier. Of all the concerts i have been too since this was by far the greatest. I was amazed Jimmie Page playing with a violin bow I thought he had to be the greatest guitar player alive.I remember after John Bonham playing his drum solo my buddy saying wow a 26 minute drum solo, and robert Plant looked like they had to have spray painted his jeans on. The song I remember the most was the Lemon Song I was very inexperienced and was standing in front of a strange girl how was rubbing herself off on my shoulder.

I was there too and I always thought it was in 1969. I stayed for the encore and left my seat in the stands and went down infront of the stage the place was practically empty. It was the best concert ever !!!
