Last month, prog-rockers King Crimson started to roll out dates for a forthcoming North American Tour. At the time there were a handful of “TBA”s on the schedule, but now the venues and dates for all 14 summer shows in the U.S. and Canada have been revealed.
The “Radical Action Tour 2017” will begin at Seattle’s Moore Theatre on June 13. A stop at Mountain Winery in Saratoga, California comes next on June 15 and now the group has confirmed they will play Oakland’s Fox Theater on June 17 ahead of a visit to Humphrey’s By The Bay in San Diego on June 19. King Crimson has also confirmed their Los Angeles appearance on June 21 will take place at the Greek Theatre, the Denver stop will be held at Bellco Theatre on June 24 and their visit to Minneapolis will see them perform at the State Theatre on June 26. The eight-piece ends June with appearances at the Chicago Theatre on June 28 and Kodak Hall in Rochester on June 30.
Robert Fripp & Co. start July with a swing through Eastern Canada including an appearance at the Montreal Jazz Festival on the 3rd and at Toronto’s Massey Hall on the 5th ahead of a concert at Centre Videotron in Quebec City on the 7th. The band will play the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey on July 9 and 10 before heading to Mexico City for shows on July 14 and 15. King Crimson also revealed, “there will be further dates in the autumn, to include New York City.”
Fripp recently announced multi-instrumentalist Bill Rieflin had returned to the band following a sabbatical. Along with Fripp, he rounds out a lineup featuring guitarist Jakko Jakszyk, bassist Tony Levin, saxophonist Mel Collins, and drummers Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto and Jeremy Stacey.
