On This Day (August 3)…ELP’s Last Chance

Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1998 at the Chance in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Ticket for the show. Retrieved from here.

ELP were at this time gearing up for a tour with Dream Theater and Deep Purple. They would be with them on tour for most of the rest of August.

There is no recording of this particular concert. It is the only one of ELP’s confirmed solo dates in August which was not recorded.

While ELP had never before performed at the Chance, one of their 80s subsidiary bands, 3, had kicked off their sole tour there. I talk more about the venue here.
