King Crimson have announced the “Uncertain Times” European tour for 2018. The ensemble will visit Poland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands, Italy, France and UK. King Crimson are scheduled to play six shows in the UK in October/November.
VIP tickets are available from the band’s website www.dgmlive.com, where fans can also find recordings and photographs of recent shows. General tickets went on sale on 1st December, 2017.
With three drummers, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison and Jeremy Stacey, as well as the return of multi-instrumentalist Bill Rieflin on keyboards, guitarist and original founding member, Robert Fripp states that this “double quartet formation” is likely to make more noise than ever before. Rounding out the eight piece line-up are guitarist and vocalist Jakko Jakszyk, long-time bassist Tony Levin, and saxophonist and flautist Mel Collins, who was a mainstay of Crim from 1970-1972. The band draws on material from all periods of their history, including many tracks that Crimson have never played live before, as well as new arrangements of Crimson classics and, of course, a healthy dose of new material, including the compositions for three drummers, which are a regular highlight. This is an unmissable tour!
