Rick Wakeman is about to embark on a “long-distance runaround.”
The 73-year-old Yes keyboardist and David Bowie collaborator embarks on an 11-date solo tour from March 31st to April 15th that will take him across North America to perform the hits you know and love, and at the same time to tell anecdotes from his half century in show business.
In the short term, the rocker with the frequent coats will play six concerts in New York and New Jersey.
First up is Atlantic City’s Sound Waves at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on March 31st.
After that, Wakeman has concerts at Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ on April 1st, The Vogel in Red Bank, NJ, at Count Basie Center For The Arts on April 3rd, The Paramount in Huntington, NY on April 5th, City Winery in New York City April 6 and Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, NY on April 15.
Surprisingly, tickets to see the prolific Wakeman live can be scavenged at reasonable prices.
At the time of publication, we found some seats for as little as $39 before Vivid Seats fees.
Not a bad price to see a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer perform songs from their extensive catalog live.
