Emerson, Lake & Palmer, also known as ELP, are an English progressive rock super group. They found success in the 1970s and sold over forty million albums and headlined large stadium concerts - one of the largest at California Jam (Cal Jam) in 1974 was in front of 200,000 people. The band consists of Keith Emerson (keyboards), Greg Lake (bass guitar, vocals, guitar) and Carl Palmer (drums, percussion). They are one of the most commercially successful progressive rock bands and from the outset focused on combining classical pieces with rock music. The legendary Rock Band reunited to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and headlined London's first High Voltage Rock Festival. This was the historic moment when Emerson Lake and Palmer performed for the first time since 1998.
Works Orchestral Tour is live in Montreal on Aug. 26, 1977, where ELP became the first rock band to assemble and tour with a full 65 piece symphony orchestra before a sold-out audience of 70.000 enthusiastic fans. This is Emerson Lake And Palmer "Symphonic Live" recorded during the works tour on August 26th 1977 at the Montreal Olympic Stadium. The band was accompanied by the Royal Montreal Philharmonic 65 Piece Orchestra and a 12 person choir. This show, filmed before over 70,000 fans is considered to be Keith Emerson's Opus.
On Moscow, the Keith Emerson Band includes ace session guitarist, vocalist, and composer Marc Bonilla (who's toured before with Toy Matinee), bassist Travis Davis, and drummer Tony Pia, who, while currently a member of the Doobie Brothers, has also played with Edgar Winter and Brain Setzer. The program features numerous Emerson, Lake & Palmer nuggets (including a 35-plus-minute "Tarkus"), some brief Emerson originals (film cues from his soundtrack work), a pair of Bonilla pieces, and two co-writes between Bonilla and Emerson. Filmed August, 2008, at Central House of Cinema, Russia.
