Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1973 at the Konzerthaus in Vienna, Austria.
This was the second of two dates the band performed in Vienna during their Get Me a Ladder Tour. Austria was the second-to-last country they performed in during this short but influential tour.
This was also the last date the band performed prior to a set of forced postponements and cancellations due to bassist Greg Lake’s development of laryngitis. This forced a five-day break in the tour while Lake recovered in time for the final set of dates in Italy.
There is no known recording of this concert.
I talk more about the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the storied location of this performance, here.
