Comments:  Rhonda and I attended this show together. We were third or fourth row right in front of Keith Emerson. Bill and Leslie were at the show as well. God only knows where they were sitting. This was one of the few shows I have ever attended where the band performed an honest to goodness, unscheduled encore. During Fanfare for the Common Man, Keith’s keyboards were giving him no end of grief. They muddled through and by the next tune, Touch and Go, things were back to normal. You could tell that the glitch stuck in Emerson’s craw. After their first encore, replete with Keith knifing his Hammond B3 unmercifully during Rondo, the band left the stage and the house lights came up. Thing is, people weren’t quite ready to leave. We cheered; we stomped; we clapped. From our vantage point we could see the band gather at the stage door trying to figure out what to do. Ultimately the house lights went down again and the band returned to perform a smoking version of Fanfare for the Common Man, unencumbered by the keyboard problems which plagued their initial attempt.
