On This Day (June 21)…Works Still in Philly

Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1977 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Ticket for the show. Retrieved from here.

This was the band’s second consecutive day in Philadelphia. The band were still early on this part of the Works Tour, the portion without the orchestra. The orchestra rejoined them at a few special concerts, but except for that the remainder of the tour was undertaken as a three-piece. This long tour, going for about ten months with only a break in December, was the last the band would take in the 1970s. Afterwards, they made up these mind to disband for a while, but were forced by their record label to make one last album.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.

I talk more about the venue at which the band performed, the Spectrum, here.
