I fell down 5 flights of stairs at this concert, like flying backwards & got up laughing. Greatest feeling being there at Led Zeppelin Forum 77

I just graduated high school in June 1977 and my dad gave me 2 tickets for graduating. It will always be one of my greatist memories. I think the face value was $12.00. 

The greatist band on earth.

2 hours late - 4 hrs in length - Does anybody else remember the "unplugged set" they played ! That was my favorite part. The acoustic set included Going to California,
Battle for Evermore, Dancing Days and Black Mountain Woman and a few others. Then again if you can remember them all - you didn't have a good enough time ! Peace !

I was at the last concert Led Zeppelin played in L A with my brother in 197 it was amazing and and then saw them again the month following in seattle. The memories from those two concert are the best.

Those of you who were also a the show: Anyone remember a really long pause--like fifteen or twenty minutes---between the two encores? As I remember it, the house lights came up, but we just stayed in our seats and kept cheering. Then, we got them back. It was magical detail to a teenager. I just want to know if it really was like that. Anyone remember?

Some friends and I were fortunate enough to attend all 6 AMAZING nights (after camping on the Forum sidewalk for approximately a week to get tickets - my dad about freaked and would drive over from OC every day to make sure I was still alive! lol)... and I think it was on night #4 (25th? need to consult the ticket stubs to be sure - when I used to know by heart! ack! lol) that Mr Robert Plant caught a bouquet of roses I threw to him between songs (and between bouncers coming at me! lol) right after "Nobody's Fault But Mine" and said "thank you"... okay, I can die happy now... lol :D

What would I bring if ever stranded on a desert island? A sarong and lots of Led Zeppelin, so I could dance all over the beach! :D

To the hottest rock band ever... Thank you for making my 70s... (80s, 90s, Y2Ks and beyond!)... Guys!

Lots of love to you here and above,
Raia De Vine :)

I went to see their concert in LA and the next month in Seattle with my brother it still is the best time I ever had at any concerts I have seen.

Jim Clark's picture

I was there that night! It was the first (and best) concert I ever went to -- and what a show! I have always wondered what the name of the encore song was, and now I know. Thanks for posting it on the site, and thanks for the great music and memories throughout the years. When are you coming back to L.A.? Please make it soon!

Jaimie's picture

I was there, and I think I can recall that, I think my thinking at the time, why is everyone doing this, they're not coming back, and it seemed sooo long, I don't think I've thought about that is decades, but I think you're right! Cheers!

bob's picture

I was at all 5 shows--I think it was five at the LA Forum
unforgettable and sad to see it end, but there was many to follow!

Jim - I was there, too. I didn't remember the song itself, just that there was a second encore. And, when I watched the clip, RP's sign off was familiar. Did I make it up over the years, or did we really stand cheering for a long time with house lights on waiting for that song? The whole thing made my day---back when those things mattered.

Maybe I should be asking Zep why they gave us such a treat? Guys...?
