The Official Tribute in loving memory of Keith Emerson was live in concert at the El Rey Theater, Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA on May 28, 2016, just a few miles from Keith Emerson's Santa Monica home where he died on March 11, 2016. Lucky Man was one of the first songs to include a modular Moog Synthesizer solo. Keith became the first artist to tour with “The Moog” internationally with the help of its inventor, Dr. Robert Moog. His daughter spoke at the tribute. Michelle Moog-Koussa said that when "Keith left us, I felt like a part of my father had died." Sure, others employed her dad's creation, but only Emerson "dared to take the instrument on stage night after night, country after country," she said. "Keith took this daunting, sometimes delicate and highly expressive new technology that was originally designed to sit on a table at some studio, and he boldly brought it to the masses."
