The Twist Of The Wrist tour – and more

TOUR DATES
Carl Palmer
“The Twist Of The Wrist” tour – and more!

Carl Palmer is delighted to announce that he is returning to live concert action in the UK with ELP Legacy, with a series of 12 headline shows across the UK in February / March 2014 - tickets are on sale now. He will also release his new DVD, entitled “The Decade”. The tour is named after Carl’s new art collection, see http://www.carlpalmerart.com/. Using state of the art technology, Carl is creating incredible artworks by harnessing the kinetic energy that underpins his playing; truly it is Rhythm On Canvas. He has already made his Los Angeles debut, with a show at Mr. Musichead, and the response was incredible.

Carl Palmer is the dynamic drummer and percussionist whose famously technical and [initially] Jazz infused style can be heard on some of the landmark recordings in British Rock. He worked with the biggest names in the business and his versatility helped define what we understand by Progressive Rock and becoming known as the "Drummer’s Drummer". He picked up the ‘Virtuoso’ award at the 20123 inaugural Prog Awards.

Cutting his teeth with The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Palmer then formed a new band, Atomic Rooster. He hit the big time with his subsequent teaming up with Greg Lake and Keith Emerson, which resulted in the global mega-group ELP. The band recorded a series of albums which are still regarded as touchstones for Progressive Rock. They picked up 9 gold sales awards in the UK alone. After ELP went their separate ways, Carl Palmer continued his incredible trajectory by co-founding Asia, the massively successful supergroup, who remain active.
