Emerson, Lake and Palmer

Live at the Marcus Amphitheater-August 24th,1998

Review by Gary Hill

The only pyrotechnics were not the flares on the stage or the lightning that sparked across the late summer sky. Emerson, Lake and Palmer produced musical fireworks in their own inimitable style. This was essentially an anthology type set and a crowd pleaser. The band performed the classics with a surprise or two.

The band put in a competent performance, like the seasoned professionals they are. Surprises of the night included a rendition of Crimson`s 21st Century Schizoid Man during the encore. The band seemed to have a solid idea of where they were for the encore as well, as they all sported Green Bay Packer shirts for that set.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer fans, get out and see this band. They are doing all the songs you love and doing them as well as they ever have.
