  1. fireworks

    Long Beach Arena, opened in "62 / demolished in "75 ,connected to the original L. B. municipal auditorium.
  2. 60 years on... My first concert was at the Long Beach Arena, about '72 (see specific comments about why LZ left concert and the audience reaction, see fireworks tag) I've recently been working on my Led Zep collection! And sound system.
  3. fireworks

    I attended (almost positive, year in question) this concert and somehow rocket like fireworks lunched from the floor seating maybe 20 or 30 rows from the stage, slightly to stage right. They were checking all the ticketholders for liquor at the checkpoint. Robert asked the audience to stop the fireworks, and when it continued he threatened the persons responsible that he would stop the concert!!! the fireworks continued and the band left the stage. later the house lights come up and the announcer said that the band had left the building. We began stomping our feet in protest and I remember how powerful the sound and feeling of the physical demonstration felt. Finally we were convinced to leave the building. we left without aggregation!!! And were meet with what looked like all the Long Beach PD cars in two lines forming a path to the street. The did not interfere with all of us kids. If anyone has more information or recording I would appreciate it.
