ELP were at this time early on the second leg of their Works Tour. This tour, undertaken to support two albums, was one of only three single-continent tours in the 1970s, along with the group’s debut tour and the Get Me a Ladder Tour. It was also the first ELP tour not to have a single date in Europe. Seeing as ELP disbanded after this tour ended, this meant that Europe had to go a long time before getting to see ELP once more.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
