Ticket for the show. Retrieved from here.

ELPowell’s sole North American Tour was coming to a slow but definite end. This concert marked the last date in the midwest before the band moved to the last region they frequented on their tour, the United States’ West Coast. These were followed by one date in the Southwest, the same region in which they’d begun in August, to end things.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
