After a year off from his traditional festive frivolities, keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman has announced the dates for his 2024 Christmas tour.

The Rick Wakeman Yuletide Christmas Show tour opens at Portsmouth New Theatre Royal on Saturday 23rd November and wraps up at London Cadogan Hall on Friday 20th December.

The caped progressive rock hero will also visit High Wycombe, St Albans, Folkestone, Leicester, Basingstoke, Evesham, Croydon, Bradford, Worthing, Ipswich, Bexhill, Poole, Guildford and Bath as part of the month-long trek.

Rick will be joined by two very special guests: his son and fellow keyboard player Adam Wakeman and Mollie Marriott, both of whom performed on the Return Of The Caped Crusader tour in February.

A description of the tour reads: ‘With a stage set-up of two keyboards and a grand piano, this new line-up will give Rick much more range and flexibility in the material he is able to perform, which will be a mixture of old and new songs from his back catalogue, some traditional Christmas songs and an unexpected piece of audience participation!

‘Expect hilarious banter from Wakeman Senior and Junior, outstanding soaring vocals from Mollie and virtuosic performances from two of the most talented keyboard players in the business.’
