Rick Wakeman supplies keys to Christmas

Featuring songs from YES, David Bowie, The Beatles and music with a festive twist, keyboard Wizard Rick Wakeman is back at The Palace Theatre, Southend on December 14.

Both as a member of YES and as a solo artist, Rick is known across the world for his virtuosity, creative flair and wicked sense of humour. A true rock legend, with over 50 million albums sold in five decades, his music continues to reach new generations of fans.

Fans of his solo concerts will already know that they combine spellbinding piano music with side-splitting stories and revealing insights into his lengthy and varied career.

New fans should expect an evening of superb musicianship, featuring tracks from last year’s release Christmas Portraits – Rick’s instrumental arrangements of traditional festive tunes – as well as music from YES, his own solo epics and early Bowie hits, plus fantastic arrangements of Beatles tunes, and much, much more, interspersed with knockabout (and sometimes bawdy!) humour.

The Not Quite As Grumpy As Last Xmas Tour is guaranteed to round off what has been a stressful year for everyone with an entertaining evening of glorious piano music and hilarious fun.
