Live At Montreux 1997

Eagle Rock Entertainment are proud to announce the issue on 21 June 2010 of the Emerson, Lake & Palmer "Live At Montreux 1997" on Blu-ray [Cat No ERBRD5043]. The release includes ELP classics from across their career including Karn Evil 9 ("Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends"), Hoedown, Take A Pebble, Lucky Man, Tarkus, Pictures At An Exhibition and Fanfare For The Common Man.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer, known to all as ELP, were progressive rock's first supergroup. Keith Emerson (keyboards) came from The Nice, Greg Lake (guitar, bass & vocals) from King Crimson and Carl Palmer (drums) from Atomic Rooster. Formed in 1970 they were an instant success and went on to have a series of huge selling albums throughout the seventies before splitting up in the early eighties. Reunited in the early nineties they produced a new album, Black Moon, and began to tour again. In 1997 they embarked on a world tour which included this superb performance at Montreux on July 7.
