Compelling live show will feature custom made films, and cutting-edge performances that will honor the musical legacy of ELP. Tour will celebrate the release of Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy new double CD/ DVD release “LIVE” on BMG MUSIC

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 2017/2018 World Tour, ​EMERSON LAKE & PALMER LIVES ON!​ with a run of over 20 shows in United States. The show is a musical celebration of the groundbreaking progressive rock group, ELP.

The tour comes after a successful run of shows in England and Europe, that began at the legendary Tralf Music Hall where the LIVE CD was recorded in 2014. The new CD/DVD is an international release of a DVD/ CD combo featuring Palmer’s 2016 ​Pictures At An Exhibition ​tribute to Keith Emerson (that featured Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett, Vanilla Fudge keyboardist and vocalist Mark Stein and drummer David Frangioni, who made guest appearances) and the band’s ​Live In The USA CD.​ Palmer’s label, BMG Music, has recently seen widespread success with its limited edition Emerson Lake & Palmer box set and the company’s re-issue of the entire ELP catalog.

“The band is running on all cylinders and has never sounded better,” says Palmer. “Fans can expect the biggest hits of ELP along with some of its epic pieces, all presented with a full visual element of special films created for the tour.”

In addition to Palmer’s compelling stage show, the tour will also highlight his collection of fine art, recently done in conjunction with California’s Scene Four Art Studios. Palmer recently created three new images: ​Welcome Back (dedicated to Emerson); ​Lucky Man ​(dedicated to Lake) and ​Heat Of The Moment ​(dedicated to the late John Wetton of ASIA).​ ​The images in these collections are the result of collaboration between Palmer and the acclaimed Los Angeles Art Team, Scene Four and feature a series of signed and numbered prints of stunning visual images constructed by capturing rhythm. The images combine motion, color, and lighting into some of the most compelling fine art visuals ever created. View the Palmer art collections at ​​.

As with his previous solo tours, Palmer presents bold, new arrangements of the best-loved instrumental music of ELP, and other composers. A multimedia 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.


Don’t miss seeing Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy playing a powerful set of progressive rock. Drum enthusiasts and fans alike, can expect an evening of innovative percussive skills, from the man who brought the drum set to the forefront of rock n roll music!
