On This Day (May 15)…3 at Xcess

3 performed on this day in 1988 at Xcess in Houston, Texas.

After a brief interruption for rehearsals and a performance in New York City the day before, this date saw 3 back to their usual touring behavior: performing at small, intimate gigs. Keith Emerson, Robert Berry, and Carl Palmer were joined on this tour by guitarist Paul Keller. While they’d been joined by backing vocalists Debra Parks and Jennifer Steele early in the tour, both women were let go before the tour ended.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
