More than 40 years after he first performed at Snape Maltings, keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman returns with an intimate evening of piano performances and ‘one-sided’ anecdotal conversation.

He plays music that he has been involved with during his 50-year career, including pieces from his last two albums, Piano Odyssey and Piano Portraits, which were both top-10 chart successes. He also intersperses the performance with variations of songs he loves, from The Beatles to David Bowie. You might find some affectionate musical caricatures in the mix as well.

One of music’s great entertainers, Wakeman intersperses the music with stories and memories from a life filled with humour and a (well-disguised) admiration for his fellow humans.
