On This Day (April 22)…A Ladder to Dortmund

Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1973 at Grosse Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany.

ELP were at this point on their Get Me A Ladder Tour in Europe. The group performed most of their concerts, like this one, in Germany. Along they way, they had performed in France, Sweden, The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, and Denmark.

It appears from this poster that this particular gig was a mini-festival of some sort. At this point in ELP’s career, they were often called on as the headline act. Just around a year after this gig, the band would be headlining California Jam.

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!
