News: Keith Emerson and Greg Lake team up to go unplugged

This should be interesting. I assume Mr. Palmer is busy with the reformed Asia. What other reason could there be for not bringing to whole of ELP to North America once again? How are they going to bill these concerts? Live with EL_? (Well obviously not but its a silly thought) Nevertheless here is the news as found on Greg Lake's website:

Many American fans have expressed keen disappointment because they cannot make the UK reunion of Emerson Lake and Palmer. We are all looking forward to that event, and that first reunion of the band in more than a decade is the highlight of the coming summer.

Nonetheless, American fans will not be disappointed. There is a special treat in store as Greg and his writing and performing partner tour this April in what is billed as "An intimate evening with Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, featuring the music of Emerson Lake and Palmer, the Nice and King Crimson."

This special "unplugged" and intimate two man show is unlike any the two have performed, solo or with others, and we eagerly look forward to meeting you there.

The tour begins in April and the following dates are already booked:

  • April 1, 2010 - Cleveland, OH - Lakewood Civic Auditorium
  • April 2, 2010 - Glenside, PA - Keswick Theater
  • April 3, 2010 - Ridgefield, CT - Ridgefield Play House
  • April 6, 2010 - Alexandria, VA - The Birchmere
  • April 8, 2010 - New York, NY - Nokia Theatre Times Square
  • April 9, 2010 - Westbury, NY - Theatre at Westbury

(More dates will be added soon)
