This was the last of the three shows ELP and the orchestra with which they had begun the Works Tour played at Madison Square Garden. After this date, ELP were back on the road as a three-piece, meeting up with the orchestra one last time in August at the Montreal Olympic Stadium.

This concert is known to have been recorded, and is in circulation online.

This was the last time ELP ever performed at Madison Square Garden, where they had given many an epic performance in their time. However, both of their major spinoff groups would play at the venue during their respective tours of North America. I talk more about the venue here.
