The name of his summer tour has been changed to The 2016 Remembering Keith and the Music of Emerson Lake & Palmer Tour in recognition of the keyboardist, who died earlier this month.

Previously, the trek was intended to celebrate Palmer’s 50th year in music.

“I will deeply miss Keith and I want you all to know I will carry on flying the ELP banner and playing the great music with my band for many years to come,” Palmer said in a statement. “We have lost a very talented and gifted musician but this great music will continue for a long, long time.”

As part of the tour, Palmer will stage a tribute show June 24 in Miami dubbed Pictures at an Exhibition — A Tribute To Keith Emerson. It will include special guests as well as performances by The Center for Contemporary Dance, which will interpret ELP music in dance form with backing from Palmer and his band.
