King Crimson Celebrate 50th Anniversary With Three RAH Shows In June
Often acclaimed as one of the best live bands in the world, King Crimson has constantly re-invented itself throughout its 50-year existence. Having reformed in 2014 the current seven-piece line-up features Robert Fripp (guitar), Mel Collins (saxophones & flute), Tony Levin (bass, stick and backing vocals), Jakko Jakszyk (guitar & vocals) and drummers Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto and Jeremy Stacey – who doubles on keyboards.
This very special group of musicians has allowed the band, for the very first time, to access material from throughout King Crimson’s long history. In fact, since 2014, they have played a large number of historic pieces which have never previously been performed live, as well as old favourites, and their own newly written material.
The shows are regularly around three hours long, with a setlist newly written each day by Robert Fripp.
