On This Day (October 30)…ELPowell in Los Angeles

10 out of 10, excellent gig and sold out. [It was great, but only about 2/3 full – Bill W.]

Cozy Powell from his tour diary regarding this show; extra notes clarify one of his statements

Emerson, Lake & Powell performed on this day in 1986 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, California.

ELPowell were in the final stretch of their sole tour through North America. During this last period, from October 29th to November 2nd, the group played every night, for a total of five back-to-back performances. This was the most back-to-back performances the group did while on this tour, a tiring way to end a tour which had covered a great deal of ground and had been going fairly steadily for two and a half months!

Cozy Powell rated this gig as a perfect 10, the only performance on the tour he rated that highly. While he was apparently wrong when listing it as a sold-out performance, two-thirds capacity is still a very good showing for one of the last stops on the tour!

This concert is known to have been recorded and is in circulation online.
