ELP were at this time on their debut tour, introducing themselves to their countrymen. For many audience-goers, this would be the first time they got a taste of what would soon become one of the biggest acts in rock ‘n roll; the band had yet to release their first album, which followed this concert by about two months.

While the three were each known quantities, keyboardist Keith Emerson was without a doubt the most famous. The promotional materials for this and several other concerts spotlighted his presence in the new group.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
