Ticket for the show. Retrieved from here.

ELPowell were at this time on their sole North American Tour, which slowly but surely was winding down. As Halloween approached, the band took on holiday-themed events such as this one, which the ticket states was a “Halloween Ball” A few days afterwards, Keith Emerson would appear onstage in costume, as he apparently had during the Works Tour.

A recording of this concert is extant, and is in circulation online.
