King Crimson will return to the stage this summer, with their influential prog-rock ready in tow. They’ll make four stops across New York State, including Buffalo, Saratoga Springs, Canandaigua and Queens.
Featuring bandleader Robert Fripp, Tony Levin (bass), Jakko Jakszyk (vocalist/multi-instrumentalist), Mel Collins (multi-instrumentalist), and the drum trio of Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harris, and Jeremy Stacey, King Crimson will kick off their summer tour on July 22 in Florida and find their way into New York in late August, before closing the tour in Washington D.C. on Sept. 11.
The Crimson Beast Of Terror has woken from its enforced slumbering and is venturing out to stomp flat the psyches of innocents not yet experienced in the hammering onslaught of King Crimson’s uncompromising pounding – bish! bish! bish! – before turning on a beat to jellify hearts with gut-wrenching passion and soul-squeezing epic unfoldings to remind us that we are all mere subjects in the unfolding drama of the universe’s unfathomable mysteries while simultaneously rocking out and having a great time bopping about with Tony and Bobby and Gavin and Jakko and Mel and Pat and Jezza too.Robert Fripp
King Crimson formed in London in 1968 and have influenced artists from multiple genres of music since, among them YES and Genesis. Fripp, the band’s remaining founding member, has been a driving force throughout the band’s history. King Crimson has drawn broad inspiration over the years, incorporating elements of classical music, jazz, folk, heavy metal, industrial and experimental music.
