8.5-9 out of 10. Must have been a good gig.

After two dates in Canada, ELPowell had returned to the United States. The remainder of the tour took place in the US.

Unlike 3, ELP’s other major spinoff band from the 80s, ELPowell mostly borrowed from their parent band’s canon. Only four songs from their album, “The Score”, “Learning to Fly”, “Touch and Go”, and “Mars” were performed at this concert. Everything else originated on an ELP album.

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