Carl Palmer, who remains with prog-rock outfit Asia, is undertaking an ongoing tour to pay homage to his former band, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, announced his website. The new trio consists of the 63-year-old Palmer on drums and percussions, Paul Bielatowicz on guitar and Simon Fitzpatrick on bass.
The ELP Legacy Tour, which includes instrumental versions of such ELP favorites as “Karn Evil 9,” Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition,” and a pair of Aaron Copland classics, “Hoedown” and “Fanfare for the Common Man,” hit Poland this for three shows. The tour resumes in January after the holidays when the trio plays 14 sows in Britain from Jan. 25–Mar. 2. During the U.K. jaunt, they’ll travel to Tel Aviv, Israel, in Feb. 6 for a one-nighter.
