One of the founding members of 70s music group Emerson, Lake and Palmer, plus 80s rock band Asia is to appear in Falmouth this month.

Carl Palmer will be playing with his own band Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy at Falmouth's Princess Pavilion on Monday, April 11 with the set starting at 8 pm, doors open from 7:30 pm.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer classics alongside a few bold, new arrangements of some of the band’s best-loved music are in store for the night, the band has recently finished a successful US Tour.

Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy features Palmer on drums and percussion, guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and Simon Fitzpatrick on bass in a musically compelling tour de force.

Speaking ahead of the tour which is the longest solo tour of his career Palmer said: "I will deeply miss Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, both of whom the world lost in 2016.

“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.”

“Since 2001, I have been playing with my own power trio, replacing the keyboards with electric guitar, 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."
