Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy have announced a UK tour which will take place in November and December.

Palmer was crowned Prog God 2017 at the annual Progressive Music Awards in London last week – and he’s now added 13 shows to his previously announced appearance at the HRH Prog VI festival.

The dates will get under way at The Citadel in St Helens on November 17 and wrap up with a set at Epic Studios in Norwich on December 3.

Speaking previously when it was revealed that Palmer would play at HRH Prog VI at Pwllheli, Gwynedd, North Wales, the drummer said: “The up and coming tour in November is a celebration of the music I have made over the years with Keith and Greg, and also John Wetton who has died this year.

“These are three very important people in my life. When all three died within a 10-month period of each other, it was a great loss to us all.

“I look forward to playing some of the music I personally made with all of them over the years, at HRH Prog VI in November.”
