Carl Palmer To Kick Off First Solo North American Tour On May 31

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Drummer Carl Palmer will embark on his first solo North American tour with his new power trio The Carl Palmer Trio. The group, which features Palmer on drums and percussion, guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Stuart Clayton, will serve up an evening of classic Emerson, Lake & Palmer music in all-instrumental show, “Carl Palmer Celebrates The Music of ELP.”

The tour begins on May 31 in Arlington, MA and continues through early July playing showcase clubs, intimate theaters and performing arts centers. “I am very excited to be returning to North America to see and play for the many loyal fans I have come to know over the years," says Palmer, who has been touring since 2002. “This is a trio, which ELP also was, but we have replaced the keyboards with some very powerful guitar interpretations of that classic music.”

Among the songs featured in the show are: “Tarkus,” “Fanfare For The Common Man” and “Hoedown.”

“Although ELP had a lot of vocal hit songs," says Palmer, "we were really about musicianship and conveying the spectrum of emotions through our instruments. Many of the classic elements of these songs remain, but they have been updated and reinterpreted through the my new band."

“My new group is a great band, and I am certain the fans will enjoy our unique versions of these timeless classics. I look forward to returning to both the US and Canada and seeing everyone once again.”
