"Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer"

Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy

Carl Palmer is a drummer’s drummer. A consummate professional, a brilliant technician and a dynamic showman, he has thrilled listeners and audiences alike for nearly four decades with some of music’s most memorable bands including Atomic Rooster, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Asia and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Along the way his dexterity, speed and mastery of the drums, combined with his infectious stage personality, have secured for him a respected place in history as one of Rock and Roll’s greatest drummers.

It would be in the spring of 1970, Carl received a phone call that changed his life forever. Keyboard virtuoso Keith Emerson from The Nice, was forming a new band with King Crimson founder Greg Lake. Immediately dubbed a “super-group” by the media, Emerson, Lake and Palmer (ELP) entered the musical arena with great expectations.

The classic single "Lucky Man" became a hit, and their stage show quickly became the stuff of legend. They recorded and released five albums in four years, all of which reached platinum status. Among them: Tarkus, Trilogy, and Brain Salad Surgery. An insane touring schedule followed and the legendary scale and musicianship of ELP’s live show continued to grow. Tired from a grueling four year run which had seen the release of 5 albums as well as untold hundreds of tour dates, the band decided to take a hiatus. The material created during this period was the basis of the ELP albums Works Volume I and Works Volume II, which were released back to back in 1977. The band continued to tour and record for two more years, before disbanding in 1979.

Support act TBA.
