On This Day (October 2)…ELPowell Come to Atlanta

6,000 people, that was sold out I think. 9 out of 10, a great gig.

Cozy Powell from his tour diary regarding this concert.

Emerson, Lake & Powell performed on this day in 1986 at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia.

The band were at this point about midway through their sole tour. The tour took them across North America. During this tour, they were traveling south towards Miami.

Cozy Powell stated in his tour diary that the group had 6000 people. In fact, the venue at which they performed had fewer than 5000 seats! Either way, it seems that the group managed a second sellout concert. Had they been able to stick to more venues of this size, ELPowell would likely have managed to have a more financially successful tour.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
