2010/2011 marks the 40th anniversary of the creation of Emerson Lake & Palmer with Keith Emerson, the explosive keyboard player from the 1960s band ‘The Nice’, Greg Lake whose sultry vocals and extraordinary bass playing had been the corner stone of King Crimson and Carl Palmer whose astonishing drumming expertise and theatricality had just been demonstrated in the band, Atomic Rooster.
In the early ‘70s EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER sold 50 million albums and went to number 1 in the charts with ‘Fanfare For The Common Man’ adapted from the 20th Century American classical Composer Aaron Copeland’s theme. Today ELP’s worldwide fan base still runs into the hundreds of thousands.
This unique DVD brings back all the original theatrics that are the highly creative and unsurpassable combination of Keith Emerson’s legendary keyboards, Greg Lake’s extraordinary voice, and the dramatic drumming of Carl Palmer – guaranteed to delight their legions of core fans and astound the new generation of fans who appreciates and seek out their musical and technical virtuosity.
“In the intervening 12 years, ELP have not lost one ounce of their virtuosity’
Nicky Horne, Rock DJ at Sony Award Winning Radio Station, Planet Rock.

What the Fans at the HIGH VOLTAGE FESTIVAL said:
“Seeing ELP together for only the 5th time in nearly 40 years of being a fan was just beyond my wildest dreams.”
“It was an amazing show. Part of me wants them to tour so I can see them again; another part doesn’t so I can gloat.”
“Thanks for uploading this precious and unique material, 500 characters in this box are not enough to describe, admire and appreciate this performance, living legends, masters of the stage, real professionals, a dream come true …”
“Great show!!!!! I wish they make a World tour once again for us !!!
“Welcome back ELP.”
“It was a great gig and I really, really, really hope they are here to stay (at least for a while). Great music, great band and High Voltage was, for me, a well organised and brilliant event. “
“The final band to perform was EMERSON LAKE PALMER. Reunited for the first show in 15 years, the three piece supergroup brought High Voltage to a close with a performance to remember. Many will consider ELP as a band for fellow musicians to enjoy, but as a non-musician myself, I’d say anyone can enjoy a band with such talent.
“ELP were the highlight, a brilliantly constructed show, excellent choice of songs. Stage pyrotechnics, knives in Keith’s keyboards, revolving stage for drum solo, cannons – the whole works. Carl Palmer has lost none of skill, an absolute powerhouse, breathtaking to observe.”
