Rick Wakeman has announced three NZ shows. Wakeman is probably best known for his role as the former keyboardist in the progressive rock band YES.
Rick is looking forward to bringing his one-man show to New Zealand:
“ I have been really rather fortunate to have reached an age where people stop trying to tell you what you should be doing. I think they have now come to the conclusion that I’m not going away, so they might as well let me get on with what I want to do!
“This means that I have been able to dip my toes into the world of comedy, stand-up, television, acting and writing which means full days and a full life. I’ve also been able to diversify as regards concerts and these vary from shows with my band to full blown concerts with band, symphony orchestra and choir.
“Over the last couple of decades, the one man show, ”An Intimate Evening with Rick Wakeman” has surprised even me as to its popularity and has been performed in the UK, America, South America and Eastern Europe and I am really thrilled to be coming back to New Zealand, (which is also my wife’s favourite country), to perform the shows there.”
