Press Review: Crowd of 20,000 attend concert starring Led Zeppelin Group

Five limousines escorted by police slowly drive past hundreds of cars packed with eager fans waiting to see the ultimate heavy metal group perform.

Inside, curly blond lead singer Robert Plant sits low in his seat trying not to attract attention. The next limo carries the world's top guitarist Jimmy Page.

Fans gather around taking pictures. He smiles and waves to them. Next comes the stunning drummer John Bonham and bassist John Paul Jones.

This is Led Zeppelin, the world's most acclaimed rock group. Within the next few hours they brought 20,000 people to a thunderous roar at the Coliseum April 27 and 28.

From the opener "The Song Remains the Same" to the incredible "Stairway to Heaven" they played to the utmost perfection.

The crowd would not let them go. They came back after 10 minutes of clapping and screaming for two encores 'Trampled Underfoot" and the exciting "Rock and Roll."

Plant, dressed in a purple blazer and skin tight jeans strutted across stage shaking his hips. Page, in a white jumpsuit played with non-stop energy. The audience loved it.

Zeppelin is especially noted for their unique, tastefully done, light show and stage effects. On the ceiling green laser beams danced with the music. An unexpected highlight was Page's "Star Spangled Banner" never performed before a live audience.

"Kashmir" and "Achilles Heel" (Achilles Last Stand) were the crowd's favorites. Bonham did a stunning drum solo that lasted slightly long. The platform he was on suddenly came forward near the end as lights flashed.

Two minor setbacks were their lack of works from eariler albums and the lengthy solos, though well-done.  

Local CB'ers advertised tickets for sale. One man sold his four extras for $500. Incredible but almost worth the price. [by Angie Czelusniak / Tatler / 5/77]
