The band was at this point midway through their Get Me A Ladder Tour, a relatively short but impactful tour through Europe in the spring of 1973. Just prior to this, the group had been in Gothenburg.

Throughout the concert, the group was accompanied by American rock trio Stray Dog, who had recently been signed to ELP’s new label, Manticore Records. Stray Dog would also accompany them early in the Brain Salad Surgery Tour.

There is no known recording of this concert.

Thank you so much for reading. If you appreciate what I do, consider donating on my ko-fi page or becoming a patron on my patreon! I’m planning on upgrading my wordpress plan to a premium one, which would allow me to improve my readers’ experience. Since I’m fairly broke, I would love it if the costs were offset a bit. Thank you!
