Ticket for the show. Retrieved from here.

ELP were at this time on their Brain Salad Surgery Tour, undertaken to support the album of the same name. This was probably ELP’s most famous tour, giving it the reputation it has retained to this day. The group performed several of their most famous concerts on the tour, including their performance at the Anaheim Coliseum and California Jam.

This was the first time the band performed in Arkansas. They only returned one other time, during their Works tour in 1977.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
