The band Three did perform live to support their album, sometime in 1988. The three studio musicians were augmented by a new guitar player (Berry played bass guitar) and female vocalist. Bootleg recordings of their concerts exist. Mostly, they did material from their album, including Runaway and a very long, jam version of the cover song Eight Miles High. The group did a different arragement of Desde La Vida with the female vocalist. The band did long instrumental jams based on music ELP also covered, but did not do any ELP songs. A long, elaborate cover of the 60s classic Standing In The Shadows of Love was included in the set.
