Carl Palmer

Pictures At An Exhibition 2012

Carl Palmer is delighted to announce that after the success of his 2011 tour, he is returning to live concert action in the UK, with the seven headline “Pictures At An Exhibition 2012” jaunt across the UK in May 2012 – tickets are on sale now. Carl Palmer is the dynamic drummer and percussionist whose famously technical and [initially] Jazz infused style can be heard on some of the landmark recordings in British Rock. He worked with the biggest names in the business and his versatility helped define what we understand by Progressive Rock and becoming known as the “Drummer’s Drummer”.
Palmer has also announced an innovative new iTunes mobile app, Play Carl Palmer’s Drums, developed by Dynamic Websites. This allows the user to download Carl’s drum kit to his or her devices and play along with fingers to any music playing through their iTunes program. Also included in the app is a myriad of rare Palmer archives and instant updates from his official website. Fans can purchase the app at the iTunes store.
For the real experience of Carl Palmer’s drums, fans will need to see his upcoming tour which will offer bold new arrangements of the best-loved instrumental music of ELP, and other composers. A multi-media experience combining music and video projection, the show promises to be among the most musically compelling tours of the year. As well as the material from the “Pictures At An Exhibition” album, Carl will be airing ‘Peter Gunn’ and Bach’s ‘Toccata and Fugue in D Minor’.
