Saturday, June 27th, 2015. Celebrates The Music of Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

Carl Palmer, among the most renowned drummers in rock history and a founding member of both ELP and ASIA, is returning to the world stage for an extensive solo tour that will celebrate the global release of his new Decade DVD (which chronicles the 2011 tour show) and his new Rhythm of Light collection of fine art, recently done in conjunction with Scene 4 Art Studios.

“America is the country that really propelled my career,” said Palmer from his home in London. “I am always excited to be touring in the US. We have been touring in Europe most of 2014, so to bring this new show to North America and Canada as I did in July and will do again in November is very exciting.”

Entitled Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy Rhythm Of Light 2014 Tour, the famed musician will present a show that includes 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 Legacy is a red-hot power trio that features Palmer on drums and percussion; guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick.

The new shows follow a successful run of dates in July, where Palmer’s group opened in some markets for Procol Harum.

The tour is named for Palmer’s second signature collection of Fine Art, The Rhythm Of Light, created completely from movements captured while he was drumming, released March, 2014. The collection is 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. This very limited Twist Of The Wrist art collection is available at

The tour coincides with the global release of Palmer’s Decade DVD features a performance from the band’s 2011 tour and includes numerous cinematic images, which were used in the stage show, and the re-release of his acclaimed 2001 Anthology, Do Ya Wanna Play, Carl? , both released in March 2014 on MVD. Also, since his last solo tour, Palmer has also remained active with ASIA .

Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy will play nearly two hours and drum enthusiasts can expect an evening of compelling percussive skills, from the man who brought the drum set to the forefront of rock n roll music.
