I was at that concert I was an Andy Frain Usher (security) and some girl came up to me when the lights were on during a break with the Tux jacket with the silver glitter lapels that you see Page wearing in this video. She asked me if I could give this jacket to Jimmy, I told her that I couldn't then a roadie that was working right behind me heard her and told me to take the jacket and then I gave it to him and he took it backstage. When the lights came back on and Page came out, HE HAD THE JACKET ON! Most people probably think that the jacket was just part of his wardrobe, but it wasn't, it came from some chick in the audience. COOL!!!!!!! True Story!!!! The good old days!!!!

Myself and a friend were both there, what a concert. We had one hell of a time, the people in the stands were all cool & stoned just like me and my friend.

I still have my ticket stub, as well.  Aisle 16, Section V, Row K, Seat 18.  $8.50.  A bargain, considering we paid a whopping $10 for tickets to the concert at the Chicago Stadium two years later, 7 April 1977.
