Grumpy Old Rock Star Tour

Keyboard magician Rick Wakeman will begin his first solo tour of America in 13 years in September. Wakeman’s “The Grumpy Old Rock Star Tour” will combine captivating piano music with breathtaking jokes and a revealing glimpse of his 50-year career.

His big breakthrough came in 1971 when he joined Yes, which has become one of the most popular progressive rock bands in the world. In 2017, he made history in the UK charts when his album Piano Portraits became the first solo piano instrumental album to enter the UK Top 10 when it was released – a feat he then repeated with Piano Odyssey last year.

Expect an evening of superb musicality, featuring Yes music, Rick’s solo epics and Bowie‘s early hits, as well as fantastic arrangements of the Beatles tunes, and much more, interspersed with humour to fall for.
