On This Day (June 23)…Works Come to Atlanta

Emerson, Lake & Palmer performed on this day in 1977 at the Omni in Atlanta, Georgia.

Ticket for the show. Retrieved from here.

ELP were at this time just entering the unexpected three-piece portion of their Works Tour. This hasty solution for budgetary issues resulting from the first few dates with an orchestra would continue on until March of the following year.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.

I talk more about the venue for this concert, the Omni, here. As a point of interest, this ended up later being the location of ELP’s last recorded concert of the 70s.
