Pictures at an Exhibition is a live album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in November 1971. It features the group’s rock adaptation of Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky, performed at Newcastle City Hall on 26 March 1971.

The band had performed the Mussorgsky piece since their live debut in August 1970, after keyboardist Keith Emerson had attended an orchestral performance of the piece several years before and pitched the idea to guitarist and frontman Greg Lake and drummer Carl Palmer, who agreed to adapt it while contributing sections to the arrangement. The album concludes with the concert’s encore, Nut Rocker.

Pictures at an Exhibition went to No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 10 on the US Billboard 200.
