Earlier in the day, the band had been in New York City, playing at Madison Square Garden earlier that day. This concert saw them returning to form and playing advertised as 3 (or in this case, “The Three”, which sounds quite neat) at a smaller venue. Throughout the rest of their tour, they had played mostly songs off their album, To The Power of Three, augmented by some of ELP’s instrumental numbers and other music from the Nice and Keith Emerson’s solo career.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
