ELP’s Works Tour was close to conclusion at this point, but they still had time to give a last hurrah to their fans. They would return to the tour circuit just over fourteen years later.

The typical tour setlist was an excellent snapshot of the albums ELP had made over the years, with focus on numbers from their two albums of the previous year, Works, Volume 1 and Works, Volume 2. The improv sections were much abbreviated from previous years, but were still top quality.

There is no known recording of this concert.
