The new tour dates follow the success of the first stop on Palmer’s ELP Legacy Tour, which took place in November. âOur fall 2021 tour was the first time since the pandemic that we were able to be together and perform,â the rocker noted via Press release, adding that “the response has been remarkable and has shown us that live music is once again in great demand”.
Palmer is the only surviving member of the Emerson, Lake & Palmer trio. The drummer promises his next tour will include “ELP’s most beloved material performed on original artistic film clips and archival footage spanning ELP’s career.”
In addition to the drummer himself, the group “Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy” includes Paul Bielatowicz on guitar and vocals, and Simon Fitzpatrick on bass. Palmer will stick to playing the drums for the most part, but he’ll pick up the mic to sing “Benny the Bouncer”.
The trek is part of a three-year celebration of ELP’s 50th anniversary, which also includes the recently released collection of live ELP recordings titled Out of This World: Live (1970-1997), a new Palmer art collection based on ELP’s top five studio albums, a documentary and karn evil 9, a major Hollywood sci-fi film based on the song of the same name.
