Carl Palmer (opens in new tab)’s ELP’s Legacy have announced a 29-date tour of England and mainland Europe.

The shows have been lined up in celebration of Emerson, Lake & Palmer (opens in new tab)’s 50th anniversary and will get under way at the Teatro Deledda in Paulilatino, Italy, on April 1 and wrap up with a performance at the Colchester Arts Centre on June 8.

Palmer says: “We are extremely excited about returning to the venues of Europe and England. We will play many of the ELP favourites, and have added a few surprises to the show.

“Now with vocals on many of the songs, we are bringing a new dimension to the show we have done in the past. We started this last year and the response has been nothing short of exceptional.”

An extensive documentary on Emerson, Lake & Palmer titled You Were Meant To Be Here is currently in development and is expected to be released in 2021.

Last month, it was revealed that ELP’s epic Brain Salad Surgery track Karn Evil 9 is set to become a sci-fi movie.

Radar Pictures, the company behind the hit Jumanji films, has secured the rights to transform the 1973 song into a feature film, based around the title and lyrics (opens in new tab).
