Great night of classic rock ! CARL PALMER’s ELP Legacy / HUMBLE PIE. With the recent passing of both his ELP bandmates, Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, Carl Palmer hits the road with a tribute show in their honor. A drummer’s drummer, Palmer anchored the legendary ELP, as well Asia, Atomic Rooster and The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown. ELP’s megahits including “Picture’s At An Exhibition,” “Lucky Man,” “From the Beginning” and “Tarkus” helped define Progressive Rock and earned sales of 48 million. Palmer’s new band captures all the power of these hits in a hard driving, instrumental performance that’s winning raves globally. The Album – Humble Pie’s Performance – Rockin The Fillmore is considered one of the greatest classic rock albums of all time. Humble Pie enjoyed gold record sales for their albums and are best known for a catalog of hits that includes: “I Don’t Need No Doctor,” “Hot and Nasty,” “30 Days in the Hole,” “Halleluiah I Just Love Her So,” “Natural Born Boogie,” “Stone Cold Fever,” and “Shine On.” Today, co-founder/drummer, Jerry Shirley oversees Humble Pie’s legacy from his home in England, maintaining maximum quality control over the presentation of the group and their touring entity. “We all have a great sense of love and pride for Humble Pie, the members, their families and what we were able to achieve,” begins Shirley. “And it goes without saying that no one will ever replace Steve, Peter or any member of the band. My goal is keep the legacy of Humble Pie intact, as one of the greatest live acts in rock, while satiating the need for generations of our beloved fans to again enjoy our music performed live by world-class musicians,” he declares. Shirley appointed Dave “Bucket” Colwell, (who played and recorded with him on the last Humble Pie album Back on Track), to lead the band live on tour as co-front man and lead guitarist with the wiry and fiery Jimmy Kunes (Cactus) handling lead vocals. Colwell is best known for his work on the last Humble Pie record and a longtime stint recording and touring with Bad Company.
