Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1978. They were in Chicago, Illinois either at the International Amphitheatre or the Universal Amphitheater.
The band were on their fifth consecutive night of hard travel and concerts, certainly a hard-scrabble start to this portion of the Works Tour! Not until the twenty-third would they get a day off from the nightly concerts.
This concert is known to have been recorded. In fact, one of these three consecutive dates was released with the box set From the Manticore Vaults, Volume 4
As a quick note about the venue, Greg Lake’s website states that there were dates at a “Universal Amphitheatre”. However, I have been unable to find such a venue listed anywhere, and the ticket above looks more like the word was the “International Amphitheatre”. It’s a conundrum which extends to the next two dates as well, and one I hope to see solved.
