Keyboard Legend Rick Wakeman Launches Official YouTube Channel

Legendary keyboardist Rick Wakeman has launched his official YouTube channel! The channel will feature many rare and unreleased videos, as well as the exclusive premiere of Rick’s forthcoming film ‘Live Portraits’.

“Would you believe I now have an official YouTube channel. If you fancy subscribing to it you’re going to see lots of different things. Some things perhaps you’ve seen before…certainly a lot you’ve never seen before. There will be some exclusive stuff – exclusive purely to this channel. So please subscribe and see some of the silly things I get up to, and the musical stuff as well.” – Rick Wakeman



To celebrate the launch of Rick’s official YouTube channel in style, subscribers are asked to vote for the top track they want to see from the film ‘Live Portraits’ (track listing below). Votes can be cast here on PledgeMusic.

The tracks are:
1. MORNING HAS BROKEN
2. AND YOU AND I
3. SUMMERTIME
4. SWAN LAKE
5. SPACE ODDITY
6. AFTER THE BALL
7. SWEET GEORGIA BROWN
8. HELP
9. AMAZING GRACE
10. WONDROUS STORIES
11. MERLIN THE MAGICIAN
12. LIFE ON MARS

Once the votes have been counted, the ten most voted tracks will be posted exclusively on Rick’s YouTube Channel for 48 hours. Fans should subscribe to Rick’s official YouTube Channel to be notified when this event will take place. Click here to Subscribe.

Following the hugely successful “Piano Portraits” tour last year, in support of the album of the same name, Rick Wakeman will return in Autumn 2018 with a new show based on the follow up release, entitled “Piano Odyssey.” The fourteen-date tour will feature even more classic tracks given Rick’s unique piano treatment, and will travel to towns and cities not previously visited in 2017.

A live version of Rick’s critically acclaimed album ‘Piano Portraits’ was filmed & recorded at the Lincoln Cathedral in London on March 7th, 2018. ‘Live Portraits’ will be released on CD/DVD soon. It can be ordered exclusively from Pledge Music here.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
