As a celebration of the late Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and and the instrumental rock classics of ELP, Carl Palmer, one of the most renowned drummers in rock history and a founding member of both ELP and ASIA, has announced an extensive 2017 world tour.
“I will deeply miss Keith and Greg, both of whom the world lost in 2016,” says Carl, as he prepares for the longest solo tour of his career. “It is now down to me to carry on flying the ELP banner and I will be playing that great music with my band for many years to come. The outpouring of support from ELP’s fans has been astounding, so, I felt I owed it to them to continue the music we made as a group.
Palmer will present bold, new arrangements of the best-loved instrumental music of ELP, and other composers. A multi-media experience combining music and video projection, the show promises to be among the most musically compelling tours of the year.
