Rick Wakeman has announced that he is gearing up to return to the USA in March and April 2023 with his latest tour, “An Evening With Rick Wakeman: His Music And Stories,” starting Wednesday, March 15 in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.

“It’s always so enjoyable playing in America,” Wakeman comments. “At every show, I see old friends and hopefully, make new ones.”

Wakeman’s set will consist of music taken from across the wide breadth of his 50-year-plus career, stripped back to its simplest form in arrangements for grand piano. It will include work from his early days as a session player arranging and performing keyboards on hits like David Bowie’s “Life On Mars,” through his days with Yes and his own multi-platinum solo albums, plus a number of exciting cover songs from bands like The Beatles.

Wakeman will supplement these songs with anecdotes and stories from throughout his life. In a departure from his previous solo tours, as well as playing a grand piano, Wakeman will also be bringing along a few electronic keyboards to add variety and texture to his set.

“I’m looking forward to ringing the changes with the addition of keyboards, which is a bit of a departure from my traditional ‘piano shows,’ but will give me the opportunity to vary the setlist.”
