"The Grumpy Old Rock Star Tour" will hit Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City
Published May 09, 2019Rick Wakeman — the legendary keyboard wizard of Yes — has announced his first North American tour in over a decade, and it's coming to Canada.
Amazingly titled "The Grumpy Old Rock Star Tour," it will mark Wakeman's first solo trek across the U.S. and Canada in 13 years. In addition to hitting up multiple U.S. cities, the tour will make Canadian stops in Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City in late September.
Besides playing his famed Yes material, Wakeman will be performing highlights from his 50-plus-year career, including his solo work, contributions to various early David hits and arrangements of classic Beatles songs. Besides all that, the tour promises "sidesplitting jokes" and "revealing insights" from Wakeman's decades in music.
