The show itself kicked off with 'KE9', a firm favourite of every ELP fan, but being the Carl Palmer Band things have a different twist.  The keyboard parts are taken on by Paul Bielatowicz , a superb guitarist who manages to pull off just about every trick in his arsenal to make every track seem familiar, yet unfamiliar at the same time.

Other great ELP tracks followed including 'Hoedown' and 'Abaddons Bolero' (Which was only played a handful of times by ELP themselves).  Paul's guitar solo followed which included a frantic version of the William Tell Overture.

This led to 'Take A Pebble' in which bass player Simon Fitzpatrick nailed down a beautiful rendition of a timeless classic...

I must admit that it seems odd at times not hearing the voice of Greg Lake singing these tracks, but I was making up for it in my head. 

'Tarkus' and 'Pictures at an Exhibition' followed before the crowd pleaser 'Fanfare For The Common Man' (including the mighty Carl Palmer's drum solo) closed the show. 

Another obscure live track 'Trilogy' and 'Nutrocker' sealed the deal on a great evening and the crowd queued patiently to get various items signed by the man himself.
