The Florida Theatre is pleased to announce that "Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy" has been added as a special guest for the Alan Parsons Live Project show at the Florida Theatre. Carl Palmer is among the most renowned drummers in rock history and a founding member of both Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Asia. Palmer will present bold, new arrangements of the best-loved instrumental music of ELP, and other composers. Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy is a red-hot power trio that features Palmer on drums and percussion; guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick.
Rock and Roll’s audacious, virtuosic progressive rock icons Emerson, Lake and Palmer were best known for classic songs like “Lucky Man,” “The Barbarian,” “Tarkus,” “Hoedown,” “Trilogy,” “Karn Evil 9” and more.
“I will deeply miss Keith and Greg, both of whom the world lost in 2016,” said Palmer. “It is now down to me to carry on flying the ELP banner and I will be playing that great music with my band for many years to come. The outpouring of support from ELP’s fans has been astounding, so, I felt I owed it to them to continue the music we made as a group.”
Headlining the show is Grammy award-winner Alan Parsons, who worked as assistant sound engineer on the last two albums by The Beatles. His band, The Alan Parsons Project, garnered commercial and critical acclaim for such certified Billboard Top 40 hit singles as "Eye in the Sky," “Time” and "Don't Answer Me", and “I Wouldn’t Want to Be Like You”, among other successes. It was Alan Parsons’ genius as a sound engineer for Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon that brought him to the attention of the music world but he has gone on to enjoy success as a producer, songwriter and performer.
The historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre is sponsored by Community First Credit Union. For a complete list of upcoming events or to buy tickets visit the Theatre’s official website, floridatheatre.com. Please read about COVID-19 precautions HERE!
