Never miss another 'Rick Wakeman' show
The Rick Wakeman Ultimate Experience: Rick Wakeman
Rick will play a personal selection of highlights from his three most famous albums: “The Myths & Legends of King Arthur”, “The Journey to the Centre of the Earth”, and “The Six Wives of Henry VIII”.
This astonishing two hour programme will also include other surprises from Rick's musical array.
Rick will be taking his audience on a seamless journey through the albums that established him as an individual artist and global icon of progressive rock music. He is bringing together a full orchestra, rock band and choir to bring to life an unforgettable and unique music experience for Wakeman and rock fans.
Supporting Rick on stage will be around 90 musicians comprising the acclaimed English Rock Ensemble, the Cheltenham Symphony Orchestra conducted by Guy Protheroe, and the Choir of Gloucester Cathedral.
VIP tickets are limited and include meeting Rock, along with a photo opportunity at a private event.

Classically trained pianist, Rick dropped out from the Royal College of Music to forge a career in music. He recorded 'Space Oddity' with David Bowie at the start of a career as a session musician in which he has played over 2000 different songs. A member of The Strawbs, he left to join rock supergroup Yes in 1971 - an association he has maintained irregularly over the subsequent years.
Rick has also recorded a number of highly successful solo albums, and has forged a side career as a professional raconteur; most recently as MC for Jongleurs comedy club. Rick's live shows range from rock to classical, from new age and new world music to incredibly funny storytelling.
