LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-JUNE 2, 2019…FORTY SIX YEARS AGO LED ZEPPELIN PLAYED KEZAR STADIUM. THE SHOW DREW 50 THOUSAND FANS.

FROM LEDZEPPELIN.COM HERE’S A NEWS REPORT OF THE DAYS EVENTS:
50,000 See Led Zeppelin in Bay City
The British rock group Led Zeppelin drew 50,000 rock fans who paid $320,000 at Kezar Stadium last weekend. Although the 2 ½ hour show Saturday was 6,000 short of capacity, listeners blanketed the football field and stands. Hundreds of others heard the music for free from rooftops in the surrounding neighborhood.
A month ago, Led Zeppelin grossed $309,000 to shatter the Beatles’ mark in 1965. Organizers said the group netted better than $1,000 per minute during the show here. It was the second large rock concert in a week at Kezar. The only casualties reported were some bad drug trips, a broken leg and a security guard accidentally wounded with his own revolver.
More than 250 cars were towed away from illegal parking areas around the stadium, police reported.
