On This Day (September 1)…ELPowell at the River Bend

8.5 out of 10, so was a good gig and also a good crowd.

Cozy Powell in his Tour Diary about the concert

Emerson, Lake & Powell performed on this day in 1986 at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

ELPowell had begun their sole US tour midway through August. In between the August dates and September dates, the band took a bit of time off the touring circuit. According to Cozy Powell, this was to fine-tune the lights show that came with the concert. In this time, according to Powell, he and Greg Lake also played a good deal of tennis–which Powell was better at!

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
