Furthermore, Jimmy pointed out that The Beatles was holding the record before they set the new record. As Jimmy stated, Led Zeppelin got 56.800 people in their shows in Florida back in those days and broke the record with this number.
Here is what Jimmy Page captioned:
“On this day in 1973, I performed the second day of the ’73 US Summer tour in Tampa, Florida where we managed to achieve a record of 56,800 people in the stadium.
This produced great media excitement as we had apparently broken the attendance record set by The Beatles at Shea Stadium. However, it was a further illustration of the phenomena the band was generating.”
