On this tour Crimson were sharing the stage with ex-Led Zep and fellow DGM recording artist, John Paul Jones. Naturally enough there were lots of folks there who’d never come across KC before. Here’s one such eye-witness account of when the roadshow stopped in at Columbus.
“Throughout the entire performance, Robert Fripp never looked at the audience. He sat down on a stool set up to the left of Adrian Belew and never took his eyes off of his band mates during the entire concert. I don't think he was being rude, or showing any contempt for the audience, he just seemed to concentrate on the music, leaving Mr. Belew to interact with the crowd, which he did...All of the members of KC are excellent musicians. Sitting as close as I was I was able to see the expressions on their faces. The drummer concentrating on the quick and (to me) unpredictable starts and stops of the songs; Mr. Fripp smiling momentarily when something tricky worked out well as the band took the audience on a sonic journey impossible to achieve with more mainstream acts. They were able to really set a unique mood and what I heard stayed with me for days after. Don't ask me about the set list or anything like that, I haven't a clue. All in all, a concert unlike any other I have ever seen. I'm glad I hung around after Jonesy was through. It was well worth it.”
