King Crimson

June 8 | Walt Disney Theater

Since the band's return to live performance in 2014, with critically acclaimed sell-out shows all over the world including two defining shows at the Roman amphitheatre in Pompeii, the audience has been reinvented, as much as the band itself.

The band's packed three-hour shows regularly include material from twelve of their thirteen studio albums with many of the songs from their seminal 1969 album In The Court of the Crimson King. The new 8-piece line-up plays many historic pieces which Crimson have never played live, as well as new arrangements of Crimson classics. A unique show, where some of the best musicians in the world play music without distraction or adornment.

ROBERT FRIPP, though best known for his work in King Crimson, has contributed to numerous albums by players as diverse as Brian Eno, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Blondie, Talking Heads, Daryl Hall, The Roches, Peter Hammill, Keith Tippett, David Sylvian, The Orb, and The Grid. His 1979 solo album, Exposure was described as “the Sergeant Pepper of avant punk.” He has appeared twice in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Guitarist Of All Time poll, although Fripp claims these are likely to have been mistakes by the typesetter.

Robert Fripp is joined by Tony Levin, Jakko Jakszyk, Mel Collins, Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto, and Jeremy Stacey.
