Emerson, Lake and Palmer in Concert is a live album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP), recorded at 26 August 1977 show at the Olympic Stadium, Montreal, which is featured on the album cover. It was released by Atlantic Records in November 1979, following ELP's breakup. It was later re-released and repackaged as Works Live in 1993. Some of the tracks were not from the Montreal concert, but from other concerts the 1977-1978 Tour, like "Peter Gunn" and "Tiger in a Spotlight".

Similar to most live albums, In Concert showcased fan favourites of previously released material. However, "Peter Gunn", ELP's take on the classic TV theme song, was never released on any of their other albums (a slightly edited version of this live recording was included on the 1980 The Best of Emerson, Lake & Palmer compilation and released as a single in some countries). ELP frequently opened with this song on the Works Volume 2 tour.

The band hired a 70-piece orchestra for some concerts of this tour but eventually had to dismiss the orchestra due to budget constraints that almost bankrupted the group. On the original release, the orchestra performs on "C'est la Vie", "Knife-Edge", on Keith Emerson's piano concerto, and on "Pictures at an Exhibition". Works Live adds other four songs performed with the orchestra: "Fanfare for the Common Man", "Abaddon's Bolero", "Closer to Believing" and "Tank".

Original releases of the album carried no producer credit, but production and mixing of the album were largely carried out by Keith Emerson. Emerson's vision was to release In Concert as a double LP, but ELP's label, Atlantic Records, would not allow this given the band's pending dissolution; the album's later repackaging as Works Live somewhat restores this intent.[1]
