This was the last concert Keith Emerson, Robert Berry and Carl Palmer performed on the West Coast during their sole tour of North America. The group would from here go east through the American southwest, with a single interruption when they were flown in to perform at Madison Square Garden for a celebration of Atlantic Records, ELP’s old label.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
