Everybody was there for Deep Purple specifically

Las Vegas TV channel KSNV has a flashback news report about a riot that ensued on April 27, 1973, when Deep Purple did not take the stage at the LV Convention Center. The report itself was published in 2015 on the occasion of Fleetwod Mac being in town, who were also on the bill for the ill fated ’73 gig.

Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    Classic days indeed. For a second there as I started watching this, I was waiting for Blackmore the villan being the reason for the cancellation. Ha, such is his reputation at times. Rory Gallagher, God bless him. Cheers.

    Had same experience with Guns & Roses concert in Meddlands stadium in 94. Axel would not go on stage ontill 12:30 in the morning, when they were scheduled to go on at 8;30 pm. People where throwing beer bottles at security, and fights broke out ever where….the Police arrested eight hundred people that night and guns only did two songs before ever one one was kicked out.
