Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in Chicago in 1978.
This was the group’s second of three nights in Chicago. The Windy City would be the longest stopover for the group for this leg of the Works Tour.
One of the dates from this batch of Chicago performances was recorded and released as part of ELP’s From the Manticore Vaults, Volume 4 box set. Most places state that it was the January 20th concert, but it may have been this one.

A native Chicagoan on my last post commented that he’d never heard of a “Universal” Amphitheatre, but it’s a venue noted in setlist.fm and other places, not just in this instance.
