Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP) reformed for the first time since 1998 for their final show to headline the High Voltage Festival on Sunday, July 25th 2010. Now, the 40th Anniversary Reunion of the World’s Greatest Prog-Rock Band is available on DVD this coming August 23.
2010/2011 marks the 40th anniversary of the creation of Emerson Lake and Palmer. ELP was a predominant force that laid the foundation for all progressive rock. The band consists of Keith Emerson, the explosive keyboard who came from the Nice, the sultry vocals and extraordinary bass of Greg Lake from King Crimson and the theatrical and extraordinary drumming of Carl Palmer, who emerged from Atomic Rooster.
ELP became the first true prog-rock Super Group and defined an era. This is a show that brings back the same theatrics that the highly creative and unsurpassable combination of Keith Emerson’s legendary keyboards, Greg Lake’s extraordinary voice, and the dramatic drumming of Carl Palmer to their core fan base and to the new generation that hails the musical and technical virtuosity that ELP delivered at every performance, and recorded in every album.
