Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page made another ‘On This Day’ session by sharing a new post on his official Instagram account and revealed one of the most interesting things that happened in their live shows.

In 1971, Led Zeppelin started a tour in Europe and visited countries like Denmark, England, Switzerland, and Italy. However, there was an unfortunate incident during their shows in Milan, Italy that you will be surprised when you hear the story.

Jimmy revealed that the police forces attacked the audience and the band with the tear gases and dispersed the people in it. Jimmy stated that this was surely premeditated operation, and because of that, they lost some equipment and their enthusiasm to play in Italy again.

Here is what Jimmy Page wrote:

“On this day in 1971, I played with Led Zeppelin in the Velodrome in Milan but only managed a few numbers before the police let loose with a salvo of teargas that flooded the audience and band. ⁣

It was clearly a premeditated operation; we lost some equipment that night and also the enthusiasm to play in Italy again.”
