On This Day (December 12)…ELP’s (Second) First at Leeds

Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1970 at Leeds University in Leeds, England.

ELP were at this time on their debut tour, undertaken to support the album of the same name. The group were near the end of the tour, which had been going on since August of that year. During the tour, there were two long intervals. The group had already performed at Leeds earlier in the tour, albeit at a different venue. I talk more about that performance here.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
