Anyone else come across this ? Extra Manchester, London ? Any others ?

Were you listening to The Dudeís story, Donny?

At last

Great news on the UK tour 2015 but why oh why no dates in the North East, The Sage at Gateshead has amazing sound retension. Go for it , I would be first to book.

I have just bought my ticket for Birmingham, and it has cheered me up immensely. Iíve been to the venue before, but not for a gig.

I feared everything would sell out in minutes, but something was left.

UK tour
:: Posted by natron on February 05, 2015

Iíd just like to say how much Iím looking forward to the UK tour - I must admit I thought weíd not be seeing another one.

Given that Mr Fripp et al have so kindly organised this for my 60th year, I shall be showing my appreciation by bringing 3 members of the younger generation with me to the Edinburgh gig. 

thanks for the concern

Why Bootlegs?

"RF asked why bootlegs were often more exciting than proper releases. And the answer is absurd amounts of compression"
Are we talking about all of the 1981 Discipline shows which are audience tapes that are now proper releases? Hell the 1974 Central Park show, which has been highly regarded by Wetton and Fripp, was culled from a bootleg cassette.
I just kind of find it funny that its: "No photography, no filming, no recording. Its offensive to the artists. Youíre a bunch of egoists who feel like youíre entitled to something because you bought a ticket. But please do send in all photographs, memories and recordings for our next boxset. Thank you!"
Well I guess its okay if you did all that in the 1970s and 1980s.
But back to the question of why bootlegs? Historical reasons. There are a number of great gigs that go undocumented by bands. For example most of Pink Floydís tours in the 1970s both pre and post Dark Side of the Moon. It took decades for the band to release the 1974 Wembley shows and the 1980-81 Wall shows. Many feel that the peak of the bandís live performing was during the 1977 Animals tour which featured some incendiary guitar playing from David Gilmour and Snowy White. Another example would be Genesisí reunion with Gabriel in 1982 (Six of the Best). Although many claim to have seen professional cameras present, the band claims no recording of the event took place. Sound isnít the best but its good considering it apparently rained throughout the show. There many other examples like Bob Marleyís last show which became an official release and combined with a soundboard recording of the night.

your all missing it, sorry if I have missed previous posts ....but
One eye goes laughing,
one eye goes crying
through the trials and trying of one life
one hand is tied,
one step gets behind
in one breath weíre dying

Live at the Orpheum
:: Posted by monkeyman on February 04, 2015

I just recieved Live at the Orpheum, and I must say that the Allman Brothers are in top form here.  It is hard to comprehend that there were only two drummers!  Amazing!  Greggís got a great rock and roll voice on the first song, and Whipping Post is the best version Iíve ever heard.   Yeah!  Too bad itís so short.  Also I missed the vocals on the second song.  Oh well, canít have everything, can we?  Good Job Guys!
P.S.  Who was sitting in with the saxophone?

King Amazing
:: Posted by Spingere on February 04, 2015

After years of not getting to see Crimson I finally get a chance. Starting in Aylesbury, where I spent part of my childhood, is a gift. Thank you, whoever sorted out the tour schedule.

Thanks to Robert too. Iím already bracing myself for our delightful English cynicism and the barrage of voices of people not seeing what wonders are right in front of them. I wouldnít have blamed Robert from staying away from the UK altogether. Letís hope the positive, camera free atmosphere of the U.S. gigs is replicated here.

Anyway, the world is a good place once again. And if the tour posterís job was to draw peopleís attention to the gigs, itís working fine.

See you in Aylesbury!
