Pontiac, MI - Pontiac Silverdome April 30, 1977


Recommended Posts

This was the 17th show of the 1977 US tour and the last show of the 1st leg of the tour. The audience of 77,229 at the this show was the largest audience for a single-act concert. The previous record was 56,800 set in May 1973 at a Zeppelin show in Tampa Bay. This show was also videotaped (you can see cameramen in several of the photos filiming the action)and the images were shown on a large video screen above the stage. All these years later Zeppelin fans are waiting for this Holy Grail to surface.

Here's another one:

I had that one lined up to post but look at the other one on here that is in black and white and look how the camera man is close to page and this looked like a different angle at the beginning of Achilles Last Stand but no camera man. I think this pic is from one of the Cleveland 1977 shows.

Well, you have a point, but they're all wearing the same clothes.

They wore the same clothes at the 2 Cleveland shows 4-27 and 4-28 1977 to except Bonzo wore the white fake tuxedo shirt and he wore a kinda peach colored muscle shirt at Pontiac, but as you can see we can't see Bonzo in the above pic.
