Reviews from Rick Wakeman’s Grumpy Old Rock Star US Tour 2019:

“A wonderfully intimate, hilarious, and jaw-dropping performance... Not a grumpy soul in the room, least of all Mr. Wakeman himself.” – Parklife DC

“A dazzling display of dexterous fingerwork on the ivories.” –

Reviews from Rick Wakeman’s UK solo tours:

“A hugely enjoyable night for fans and newcomers to Rick Wakeman. Genuine laughs and exquisite musicianship – what more can you ask for?” – Lancashire Telegraph

“The audience… were thoroughly entertained with masterful piano playing and wonderous stories.” – Global Entertainment and Media

“No other artist could entertain a theatre full of people, playing alone, and keep them riveted for the entirety of his set. Rick is one of the warmest, wittiest, most talented musicians around.” – Wolverhampton Express & Star

And from YES’ 2017 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:

“Rick Wakeman’s ornate, detailed keyboard work… was just the icing on the cake… Wakeman had already brought the house down with an acceptance speech that contained a hilarious stream of dirty jokes.” – Rolling Stone
