Carl Palmer & His Band
Prepare To Embark
On Historic 32 City
2006 North American Tour


Rock legend will offer an entire evening of his music
from his years with EMERSON LAKE & PALMER.

Carl Palmer, among the most celebrated drummers in Rock History, is preparing to embark on his first solo North American tour with his own band. Entitled: “Carl Palmer & His Band – Celebrates The Music of Emerson Lake & Palmer,” the show features bold new arrangements of many of the best-loved instrumental music of ELP.

The tour runs from May 24th through July 3 rd 2006 and will include 32 shows in the US and Canada. “I am very excited to be returning to the US and Canada with my new solo band performing an evening of ELP music,” says Palmer.

“I will be returning with another power trio, but this time, we have replaced 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. Hearing the keyboard parts done on guitar will certainly surprise many fans, I think.”

The group, which features Palmer on drums and percussion; guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Stuart Clayton; will serve up an evening of classic ELP music, presented with exciting and innovative new versions. An all-instrumental show, “Carl Palmer Celebrates The Music of ELP” promises to be among the most musically compelling live shows of 2006. Palmer has released three solo albums since the last ELP tour 1998. They are:

DO YA WANNA PLAY?, a 2 CD anthology
and WORKING LIVE VOL 1 and Vol 2.

They have all been released on Sanctuary Records.

What began as a modest 4 week “re-introduction” into America Tour, has mushroomed into 32 shows and six weeks covering much of Canada and the United States.

“I have been performing with this band for the last five years all over Europe,” says Palmer. “Now, the time has come to bring this music back to the part of the world where I have always had my biggest success.”

Palmer is planning on meeting fans after each show and signing merchandise at most venues. “I want to get close to my fans once again,” says Palmer. “There are so many of them out there who are really heartfelt and have supported me through my entire career. I very much look forward to bringing it all back around again in intimate venues.”

The Carl Palmer Band will play nearly two hours and drum enthusiasts can expect an evening of compelling percussive theatrics, from the man who brought the drum set to the forefront of rock n roll music.
