On May 28, 2016, a number of music legends gathered together at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles to pay homage to their colleague and friend, Keith Emerson, who passed away on March 11 of that year. The event saw the accomplished array of musicians honor Emerson’s legacy by performing the music of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The Nice, Emerson, Lake & Powell, The Keith Emerson Band, and the Three Fates Project.

On March 11, 2021, the official live Blu-ray concert film capturing the night (as filmed by Dan Gross) will be released via the Keith Emerson Estate and Cherry Red Records to mark the fifth anniversary of his passing. The news was announced on Monday to coincide with Emerson’s birthday:

The 3-disc set promises to be a truly special collection of performance from those who took part, including Brian Auger, Eddie Jobson, Jordan Rudess, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro, Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Vinnie Colaiuta,  CJ Vanston, Gregg Bissonnette,  Troy Luccketta, Rachel Flowers, Philippe Saisse, Joe Travers, Travis Davis, Ed Roth, Jonathan Sindelman, Mike Wallace, Mick Mahan, Karma Auger, Rick Livingstone, Kae Matsumoto, Dan Lutz, Michael Fitzpatrick, and was led by guitarist Marc Bonilla, member of the Keith Emerson Band, partnering with renowned Norwegian conductor Terje Mikkelsen.

The tribute event also included a very special performance from Aaron Emerson, Keith’s son, as well as a speech by Michelle Moog-Koussa, daughter of Robert Moog, inventor of the Moog Synthesizer.

The show will be made available on Blu-Ray, with a bonus 2-CD set capturing the audio recordings from the evening.

All proceeds from sales of the live album will benefit The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation, which was very close to Keith Emerson’s heart.
