Forty years gone: I was 12 when a Led Zeppelin concert turned into a riot

7 posts in this topic

Ah yes, it's the anniversary of the infamous Tampa Stadium riot show.  I have a co-worker who was there that day and we talk about it every year.  

Thanks for sharing that story, Sam!

That's awesome.   Wasn't there someone who filmed some of this concert on 8mm film?

There's a few photos I hadn't seen before, like the far shot of them onstage and it's still sunny out! What a dramatic change in the weather in just three songs.

And I've mentioned it before, but Bonzo is just killing it at this gig, such a shame it ended so soon

This just made me think theres a lot more to the Tampa '77 story that we haven't heard, even more than I already thought so. Maybe an embarrassing technical problem, or maybe the Zeppelin thought they were playing the next day part was true. More to this story, I bet. Thanks for share.
