The news is exclusively in Classic Rock Presents Prog magazine's Facebook page. My friend request is still pending, so I don't have details.

They are reforming for a festival gig in the UK.

If this is true then I must starting saving money to see ELP before they split up again.

To officially be "back" I am expecting a really good new prog album.  Some would argue that they've only produced halfway decent prog albums.  I could live with a new one of those.

BRING IT ON!!!!!!

I sincerely regret not seeing them the last time they toured...I was in a whole different frame of mind musically then. I look forward to this!

The one interesting thing I noticed on their website is that the contact page contains contacts for bookings...which can only mean that that they intend to do much more than just a one-time show (like Zeppelin at O2)...

God only knows what songs they're going to perform live!!! It would be great if they played some of their epic masterpieces once again in their entirety, "Tarkus, KarnEvil#9", for example and cut out some of the newer material.

Great optimism here tinged with a little caution... reformations don't always work & are the great Emerson's hands up to the rigours now

Can but hope though

Who needs the money out of the three?

I would like to see this work out and a new album as long as it goes in a new direction.

From what I see this is for one gig no mention of an album or any other dates.  I am not sure Keith's hand/wrist problem could hold up for a lot of dates. Maybe a DVD will come of it.
