Greg Lake Presents "Songs Of A Lifetime" - The Music Of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, King Crimson, and Others, Thursday, April 12 And Friday April 13, 2012 At The Gesù

FMPM and Get It Promotions are proud to announce the return of legendary guitarist and singer-songwriter Greg Lake to Montreal for two intimate performances on Thursday April 12 and Friday April 13, 2012 at the Gesù (1200, De Bleury, Montreal • 514-861-4378) by one of the greatest voices and musical minds of a generation.

After a highly successful tour with Keith Emerson in 2010 during which they sold-out Place des Arts in Montreal, Greg Lake is performing "Songs of a Lifetime," an autobiographical musical journey in song and story. Included in the set-list are many of the best known songs he composed while creating progressive rock super groups Emerson, Lake and Palmer and King Crimson, stories about Lake’s personal life and career, as well as question & answer opportunities to interact with the audience.

Greg Lake will take fans on a journey through the rock legend’s life and times in such a way that they feel as if they are part of the journey. The carefully selected song list will also feature works by other artists that have influenced Lake's musical career. Unique personal recollections of such greats as Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley and members of The Beatles are skillfully woven throughout the show. The timeless music of a generation combined with Lake's dialogue and audience interaction promises to create moments of high impact from humor to drama in the intimate 400-seat Gesù amphitheater.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity for a close-up encounter with one of the progressive rock world’s most renowned musicians and outstanding voices!
