Back by popular demand, CARL PALMER, the rhythmic backbone of progressive rock's super-group Emerson Lake & Palmer, has been hailed as one of the world's greatest drummers, thrilling rock fans worldwide with his dazzling speed and technical virtuosity.

CARL PALMER's ELP LEGACY features CARL PALMER on drums and percussion, Paul Bielatowicz on guitar and Simon Fitzpatrick on bass. The power trio will serve up an all-instrumental show entitled Celebrating the Music of Emerson Lake & Palmer.
