Anyone know if this was taped by HBO or Showtime or if there will be a DVD/CD available in the future?

It was recorded and is planned to be released on DVD. Sorry I don't remember who told me that, but it was someone involved in the project.

Was thinking same thing when I saw this. Glad to hear that a DVD release is planned! :D

There is something odd about at least Greg's absence. (Greg Lake, I mean).

There were multiple cameramen there filming. I was wondering why Carl Palmer wasn't there... After all he was talking about putting on a tribute concert. I guess he's just rebranding his same show as a Keith tribute?

But I think Marc Bonilla pulled the talent together and organized the music from the pool of his and Keith's friends, so understandable why Greg and Carl had no involvement.

Or perhaps Keith Emerson's girlfriend was a bit offended by like Greg Lake's remarks:

Ouch. I'm sure what Lake said is true. I'm also sure that it would be hard for Mari Kawaguchi to read stuff like that right after losing Keith.

I could say more, but it would be me projecting, as the second anniversary of losing my husband Kevin was yesterday. I will say it's a sad state of affairs when brilliant men are driven to die alone by their own hands because their bodies betray them and leave them unable to do what they enjoy the most in life. :(

Looking forward to the DVD. Was honored that Eddie Jobson contacted me before the show to get a copy of my "Yamaha GX-1" VST. Not sure if he ended up using it - can't tell from the clips I've seen so far.

Best regards,
Roger
