Rick Wakeman has announced he will be taking his Music And Stories live show over to America for a run of live dates throughout March and April.

The evening promises a mix of Wakeman's music from throughout his career, from some of his best-loved material with Yes, his own solo career and from his time working with the likes of David Bowie, and will be punctuated by anecdotes and reminiscences of his life. 

Wakeman will also be bringing along a few electronic keyboards to add variety and texture to his set. “I’m looking forward to ringing the changes with the addition of keyboards, which is a bit of a departure from my traditional ‘piano shows’, but will give me the opportunity to vary the setlist," he says.

“It’s always so enjoyable playing in America,” Wakeman  adds. “At every show, I see old friends and hopefully, make new ones.”
