5,000 people, disaster show, an outdoor gig.Cozy Powell in his Tour Diary about the concert
Emerson, Lake & Powell performed on this day in 1986 at the Summit Festival in Houston, Texas.
This was the band’s fourth date on their sole North American tour. ELP and their spinoff bands rarely began in the Southwest, an area in which they reportedly struggled. The choice to begin in Texas may have started the tour on a bad note with regards to ticket sales.
There is no known recording of this particular concert.
