Music on Main Street
Carl Palmer, among the most renowned drummers in rock history and a founding member of both ELP and ASIA, is embarking on the final leg of his extensive 2017 World Tour, EMERSON LAKE & PALMER LIVES ON!, a musical celebration of his late band mates Keith Emerson and Greg Lake and their group, ELP.
“I will deeply miss Keith and Greg, both of whom the world lost in 2016,” said Palmer, 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. Carl Palmer ELP Legacy is a red- hot power trio that features Palmer on drums and percussion; guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick.
