Rick Wakeman Announces Grumpy Christmas Stocking UK Tour For Winter 2022

Tuesday, 14 June 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Rick Wakeman has announced the Grumpy Christmas Stocking Tour.

The former Yes keyboardist will kick off the trek on November 24 at Croydon's Ashcroft Theatre and conclude it at Worthing's Assembly Hall on December 21. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on June 17.

A social media post about the tour reads: "Audiences can expect music taken across the breadth of Rick’s career, from his work as keyboard player in legendary prog rock band YES to his solo career and session work, plus covers given an unexpected twist and festive tunes uniquely rearranged Wakeman style, performed on grand piano and electric keyboards. All of this musical virtuosity will, of course, be punctuated by Rick’s typically ridiculous stories, which, as he himself states, always contain an element of truth – it’s up to the audience to decide how much!"

“I love Christmas,” added Wakeman. “It’s just as well, as this will be my 74th Christmas. I will admit that I don’t remember 1949, 1950, 1951 and 1952 very well, but after that, little bits of memory start tok trickle back. I’m hoping this will be my best Christmas ever, but if not – well, there’s always next year!”

Wakeman released his latest studio album, 'The Red Planet', in 2020.
