On This Day (April 26)…Another Ladder to Vienna

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.

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!
