Carl Palmer

Carl Palmer, among the most renowned drummers in rock history and a founding member of both ELP and Asia, is returning to the United States for the final leg of the Rhythm of Light Tour. The tour features his popular ELP Legacy band and will also highlight his collection of fine art, recently done in conjunction with California’s Scene Four Art Studios.

“2015 has been a great year for the band, my music, and my work with Scene Four of California, creating fine art,” says Palmer. “I am very excited to return for the final leg of the world tour with shows that will take us across America.”

Carl Palmer Legacy The tour returns to the US with fifteen shows between November 12 and December 6. Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy returns after a successful run of shows this past June. Palmer will present bold, new arrangements of the best-loved instrumental music of ELP, and other composers. A multi-media experience combining music and video projection, the show promises to be among the most musically compelling tours of the year. Carl Palmer Legacy is a red-hot power trio that features Palmer on drums and percussion, guitarist Paul Bielatowicz, and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick.

“Since 2001, I have been playing with my own power trio, replacing the keyboards with electric guitar,” says Palmer. “I felt that was the only honest way to approach the music of ELP. I didn’t want to have a singer trying to sound like Greg Lake. ELP did so much instrumental music, this format made sense to me. The idea was to re-invent the music; there will be several new classic ELP tunes this time around.”

The tour will also include special art events designed to benefit regional charities which will exhibit and sell canvases from Palmer’s two acclaimed collections: The Rhythm of Light (2014) and A Twist Of The Wrist (2013). The images in these collections are the result of collaboration between Palmer and the acclaimed Los Angeles Art Team, Scene Four and feature a series of signed and numbered prints of stunning visual images constructed by capturing rhythm. The images combine motion, color, and lighting into some of the most compelling fine art visuals ever created.

The very limited Palmer art collections are available at www.CarlPalmerArt.com. A promotional film has also been produced:

 

Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy will play nearly two hours and drum enthusiasts can expect an evening of compelling percussive skills, from the man who brought the drumset to the forefront of rock ’n’ roll music.
