Carl Palmer announce 2023 ELP tour dates
In 2022, the drummer Carl Palmer, the only remaining member of Emerson, Lake & Palmer toured across the United States celebrating the 50th anniversary of the supergroup, using live footage and sound of his ex-bandmates Keith Emerson (Passed in 2016) and Greg Lake (Passed in 2016).
Now the musician announced that he will perform more in 2023 as Emerson, Lake & Palmer, “reuniting” with the help of technology with his late bandmates.
“The tour continues the successful run of show which began in November and December 2022. After exploring the idea of a Hologram tour in detail, Palmer (with the Estates of Emerson and Lake) opted for what they felt was a more honest approach using live footage of Keith and Greg on massive video walls alongside Carl (and his band) playing LIVE on stage.”
“The voice and instrumentation of Greg Lake and the unmistakable keyboard mastery of Keith Emerson will be mixed with Palmer’s onstage live drumming to magically reunite ELP once again,” The official statement said.

After establishing themselves in bands such as The Nice, King Crimson, and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, ELP was formed in early 1970 as one of rock’s first (and biggest) supergroups. With record sales of over 50 million and decades of sold out tours through the 1970s and again in the 1990s, Emerson Lake & Palmer has remained one of the best-selling classic rock bands of all time.
The band’s complete recorded catalog, now under the direction and distribution of BMG MUSIC, continues to be a steady force on the international music scene. The tour will coincide with the new BMG box set of classic ELP hit singles pressed on vinyl with reproductions of the original picture sleeves.
