On This Day (September 28)…ELPowell in Richmond

7 out of 10 so that was okay.

Cozy Powell from his tour diary regarding this concert.

Emerson, Lake & Powell performed on this day in 1986 at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia.

ELPowell’s sole US tour apparently suffered from low attendance. This could be blamed both on changing music tastes, which had left ELP behind, and on uneven promotion and management. However, the tour was still fairly well-recorded by audience members. This opens the door for ELPowell’s performances to be enjoyed by people long after the group ceased touring.

A recording of this concert is extant, and is in circulation online.
