Grumpy Old Rock Star Tour (USA/Canada 2019)

Keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman embarks on his first solo tour of America & Canada in 13 years.¬†Wakeman’s The Grumpy Old Rock Star Tour will combine spellbinding piano music with sidesplitting jokes and revealing insights into his 50-plus-year career. Expect an evening of superb musicianship, featuring music from YES, Rick’s own solo epics and early Bowie hits, plus fantastic arrangements of Beatles’ tunes, and much, much more, interspersed with knockabout (and sometimes bawdy!) typically British humor.

For up to date photographs and postings about the tour, please see both Facebook and Instagram.
