Rick Wakeman: The Grumpy Old Christmas Show

When? 15 December 2019
Where? Poole

  • Rick Wakeman: The Grumpy Old Christmas Show

Rick’s The Grumpy Old Christmas Show will combine spellbinding piano music with side splitting stories and revealing insights into his lengthy and varied career. Expect an evening of superb musicianship, featuring music from YES, Rick’s 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 world renowned keyboard player both as a member of YES and as a solo artist 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.

He made British chart history when his Piano Portraits album became the first solo piano instrumental album to enter the UK’s Top 10 on release – a feat he then repeated with last year’s Piano Odyssey. A new record, Christmas Portraits, will be released on 29 November to accompany The Grumpy Old Christmas Show, containing favourite seasonal songs – plus the usual Wakeman surprises!

Venue: Lighthouse Concert Hall

We step into the New Year with a fresh vision of exciting things to come. Whatever you’re ... Read more...

Dorset Beaches Dorset is surrounded by an 88-mile stretch of quite remarkable coastline.
