ELP’s Works Tour promised a large and spectacular event to its viewers, as the above poster indicates. By all accounts, they were correct. ELP had prior to this only ever performed with a choir at two one-off concerts which ended their 1973 run, and never had performed with an orchestra.

This concert was partially recorded, and is in circulation online.
