The three bands had just gone north of the US-Canadian border to perform together. This was the second Canadian concert the groups undertook and the ninth concert overall minus warmup dates.

There is no known recording of Dream Theater’s portion of the concert. ELP’s set was recorded and is in circulation online. Deep Purple’s set was also recorded and is also in circulation online.
