|Tampa Stadium was built in 1966 with a seating capacity of 46,481. In 1974 a $12 Million dollar expansion was approved to enclose the end zones and
prepare for the "Tampa Bay Buccaneers" who started play in 1976. Tampa Stadium hosted 2 Super Bowls, Super Bowl XVIII in 1985 & Super Bowl XXV
in 1991. Tampa Stadium was nicknamed "The Big Sombrero" by ESPN's Chris Berman due to its shape. The Stadium was officially known as
"Houlihan's Stadium" from 1996 to 1999 named after a restaurant chain that Malcom Glazer owned. In 1995 Malcom Glazer purchased the Bucs for $192
Million and the team is now valued at $1 Billion dollars. Over its 33 year history, Tampa Stadium hosted many outdoor concerts & festivals. From 1967 to
1974 all concert stages were built on the 50 yard line facing the West stands or for larger crowds the stage was built in the North end zone. Led Zeppelin
made Tampa Stadium history on both of their appearances. In the spring of 1973 Led Zeppelin embarked on a 32 city North American tour. On the 2nd
night of the tour in Tampa they played to over 56,800 the largest crowd ever for a single concert performance surpassing the Beatles' 1965 record-setter at
Shea Stadium in New York. In the summer of 1977 Led Zeppelin was in Tampa and half way through their 51 city North American tour. Zeppelin was on
stage and after 3 songs the show had to be cancelled due to a severe thunderstorm looming over the stadium. Robert Plant announced over the
microphone that they would be taking a 15 minute break due to the danger of the equipment getting wet. Zeppelin never returned to the stage and bottles
were thrown at the stage as the 70,000 fans chanted "We want Zeppelin" and a huge riot broke out between the fans and 250 Tampa Police officers
sporting riot gear and billy clubs. The stadium was trashed and over 100 fans were injured with numerous arrests. It would be over 2 years before Tampa
officials would allow any concert event to be performed at Tampa Stadium again and that first show was given to a much more laid back Eagles & Jimmy
Buffett crowd. Tampa Stadium was imploded on April 11,1999 and replaced by the $169 Million dollar Raymond James Stadium. Raymond James is a
St. Petersburg, Florida based financial company that paid $33 Million for stadium naming rights until 2015. We are updating the site daily so follow the
links below for detailed information on each concert. If there is no Blue Link then that page is still under construction.
