Keyboardist Rick Wakeman announce 2024 tour dates

The legendary keyboardist Rick Wakeman announced the 2024 tour “The Return Of The Caped Crusader…” in United Kingdom. The two-part show will consist of Rick’s new arrangements of Classic YES material for band and vocalists, followed after the interval by his much-loved epic ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth.’


Rick will of course be playing the leading role on keyboards, while the English Rock Ensemble line-up will be the same as the Palladium shows: Dave Colquhoun (guitars and backing vocals), Adam Falkner (drums), Lee Pomeroy (bass and backing vocals), Hayley Sanderson (vocals) and Adam Wakeman (keyboard, guitars and backing vocals).

“I was amazed to discover that we could have sold the Palladium shows many times over and the clamour for extra shows by fans who missed out was overwhelming. Following the great reaction and reviews of the shows, I am really pleased that we can again perform the Classic YES / Journey to the Centre of the Earth Palladium programme. Who knows? If these are successful, maybe we can do the Six Wives / King Arthur show at a later date!” Rick Wakeman said.

In 2023, Wakeman released new concept album called “A Gallery Of The Imagination”. According to the musician, the idea for the upcoming record came from his first piano teacher called “Mrs Symes, with whom he had classes from the age of five until when he was at the Royal College of Music.”

“She taught him that the music was like “painting pictures, when you play, you are painting pictures through music”. So he decided to present the songs of the new album as if they were pictures in a gallery.

Besides Wakeman, the album was recorded by Lee Pomeroy (Bass), Dave Colquhoun (Guitar), Ash Soan (Drums) and Hayley Sanderson (Vocals).

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
