A popular performer will make a welcome return to the Marina Theatre – almost ten years to the day since his last appearance in Lowestoft.

Currently celebrating his 50th year as a professional musician, keyboard player, songwriter and broadcaster, Rick Wakeman recently made chart history when his Piano Portraits album became the first solo piano album to enter the UK's top 10.

And now Rick Wakeman – The Piano Portraits Tour will hit the Marina Theatre on Thursday, November 16 at 7.30pm.

Initially inspired by the unprecedented reaction to his performance of David Bowie's Life On Mars on BBC Radio 2 in early 2016, Piano Portraits features instrumental versions of hits Rick originally performed on Space Oddity, Morning Has Broken and Wondrous Stories as well of others specifically chosen for their melodies, including Stairway To Heaven, Help and Eleanor Rigby.

He has also added a selection of some of his favourite classical pieces.

The show will include at least eight of the pieces on the album, plus other musical surprises, and all will be interspersed with hilarious anecdotes from this well-known and accomplished raconteur.

Rick's one man shows are extremely popular and consistently sell out.
