Former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman has announced a North American tour called “The Even Grumpier Old Rock Star Tour.”

The keyboard wizard is announcing the long-delayed follow-up to 2019’s sell-out “The Grumpy Old Rock Star Tour” after 18 months of lockdown in the U.K..

The 24-city tour will kick-off on October 14 in Derry, New Hampshire, at the Tupelo Music Hall and continue through November.
