dragster Posted August 7, 2008 Share Posted August 7, 2008 I'd like to know what really happened in that incident and why the lousy cops attacked the crowd.....surely being in RIGHT-WING Italy, the reason the "authorities" attacked was political!! . Comments welcome of course! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Led_Zeppelin_European_Tour_1971 <Though being very short in duration, this concert tour was well known, primarily because of the extremely violent crowd disturbance which took place at the band's concert at the Vigorelli Velodrome in Milan on July 5. This festival appearance in front of an audience of 15,000 people was abandoned when hundreds of tear-gas wielding riot police charged into the crowd. The group were forced to leave the stage and many fans were injured. Some of the group's equipment was also damaged in the chaos. The concert has been described as one of the low points of Led Zeppelin's career, and the band never returned to Italy again.> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
