On This Day (August 20)…Works the First in Dallas

Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1977 at the Memorial Auditorium in Dallas, Texas.

Front of the tour program. Retrieved from here.

ELP were at this time on their Works Tour, traveling throughout the country. This tour had seen them travel in a large counterclockwise loop around North America. They had already played concerts in Canada, including the northernmost stop on the entire Works Tour.

ELP would return to Texas later on in the tour during the third third leg of their tour.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.

This concert was the second time the band had performed in the city of Dallas; they performed at the same venue both times in the city. I talk more about the venue at which the band performed, the Dallas Memorial Auditorium, here.
