King Crimson Announces 2017 Fall Tour
Progressive rock icons King Crimson recently concluded the U.S. portion of a North American Summer Tour. Thankfully, fans stateside will have another opportunity to catch the band, as the band will return to America for a 19-date Fall Tour.
Robert Fripp & Co. kick off the tour with a pair of shows in Texas that marks the first King Crimson performances in the Lone Star State since 1974. Up first is a concert at Austin’s Bass Performance Hall on October 19 followed by a show at the Music Hall in Dallas on October 21. From there, the band heads to Atlanta for performances at Center Stage on October 23 and 24. A show in Raleigh, North Carolina will take place on October 26 followed by two nights at Washington, D.C.’s Lisner Auditorium.
King Crimson will celebrate Halloween at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark and then play a pair of shows at Philadelphia’s Merriam Theatre on November 2 and 3. The tour continues with a stop in Boston on November 6 followed by two concerts at The Egg in Albany on November 8 and 9. From there, the eight-piece plays Allentown on November 11 and makes their way to New York City’s Beacon Theatre on November 17 and 18. The tour is currently scheduled to conclude with a brief trip to the Midwest including stops in Ann Arbor, Cleveland and Milwaukee.
Ticketing details will be revealed soon.
King Crimson recently played the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey. Bassist Tony Levin shared a fascinating blog entry about what he called a “trainwreck” that took place at the second of two shows in Red Bank.
