Seattle, 10/6/14
:: Posted by EricHagelin on October 08, 2014

My 19 y.o. daughter and I attended the concert in Seattle on October 6th at the Moore Theater.  My daughter has inherited a deep appreciation for progressive rock, and KC is one of her favorites.  I’ve been a fan for a long time, though have only been to one previous KC show (Mannheim, Thrak tour).  So... essentially, we had high expectations for an excellent rock show.  My daughter was initially sorry that Adrian Belew would not be in attendance, and I was initially skeptical about Jakko being able to fill Lake’s & Wetton’s shoes from a vocal standpoint.

All expectations were exceeded, and all doubts erased.  WHAT A MONUMENTAL CONCERT!!  Thank you to all the band for an evening that was thoroughly and absolutely special!

The music was aggressive, driving, heavy, and purposeful, yet punctuated with timely moments of exquisite delicacy.  Jakko not only ’delivered’ on the vocals, he shone brightly and totally did justice to the originals.  I was super-impressed.  Having the three drummers up front was immensely cool.

The highlights for me were Jakko belting-out "Starless... and Bible Black" with emotive force, the drum solo by Harrison (which felt like a World War III victory celebration), and the supremely-executed stage light fade to deep, saturated red, intensifying an already intense musical moment - well done!

My daughter summed it up perfectly, as we were leaving the hall, when she said:  "I will NEVER get over how good that was."

You guys rocked it.  Thanks.

The Diary
:: Posted by snkzato1 on October 08, 2014

I’m hoping with the tour over Mr. Fripp will get back to the diary. I really do wonder what his responses were to the shows and if he did find his ’joy’ during this tour.

As an aside, Mr. Levin posted this gem in his tour diary

"There will be more King Crimson coming, sometime in 2015 - and you can be sure we’ll all post about that as soon as things are confirmed."

Fingers crossed for you poor neglected Europeans. Perhaps the setlist will change too. Easy Money, Cirkus, Epitaph....I guess one can dream.

Sid, I know you said there would not be a DVD from this tour, but any word on if we will get some recordings for download? I’d love to relive Madison, even with Mr. Bill’s broken bass drum.

Hello Team Crim! Thank you thank you thank you. This year’s tour has imbued me with a brand new incarnation of my KC obsession. Sid, any word on when some downloads from the tour will be made available for purchase? I (we) are chomping at the bit to hear it all again! And i’d rather throw my cash at the Crim than most of what I have to spend money on on a regular basis! Saw one of the Best Buy shows. So refreshing. Thanks again!

-Michael (Bongo)

Thanks emory0 for sharing that!

(somebody told me a long time ago that you in the USA don’t do irony!)

Of course, over here we’re all just jealous!

and one more thing
:: Posted by andyfromozz on October 08, 2014

I’m sorry but this "no DVD in the pipeline folks" has really pissed me off...it’s hard not to take it as a total "fuck you" to the fans from smaller markets like Australia. Or am I just having an unreasonable sense of entitlement here?? Maybe?... all this exciting build up on your website now seems to be nothing more than a colosall cock-tease with no promise of an orgasm at the end...
No live footage available in this day and age! We have thousands of hours of utter shit available on the web...but for one of the worlds most special bands...we get nothing!
that fucking sucks...

no live dvd whinge
:: Posted by andyfromozz on October 08, 2014

Sid, well thanks for finally confirming that for the rest of the world who can’t afford the luxury of overseas travel to see their favourite band...that they now have NO chance of ever experiencing it. I guess a few tantalizing youtube snippets here and there is the best we can expect. Lucky Americans, tough titty to the rest of us eh?
very disappointing news to this particular long time fan.

Deception Of The Thrush
:: Posted by ChewChewGumChew on October 07, 2014

Just curious... In anyone’s mind, is there an official "definitive version" of the "Deception of the Thrush" out there, among all the official KCCC club and download releases? It seemed ever changing.

The Construction of Discipline
:: Posted by Irissky on October 07, 2014

There is a bit from 3:31 to 4:30 in The Construction of Light that sounds similar to the interlocking ’Gamelon’ style guitar sound pioneered on Discipline. That may be confusing folks.

Gig complaints
:: Posted by emory0 on October 07, 2014

"From here in the UK, where the new lineup have yet to indicate whether they will be performing or not, it is getting a bit galling to read the moans and groans about KC’s gigs. We even have to put up with people posting about how many they’ve been too - even consecutive nights! It would seem to be some people don’t know how fortunate they are!"

Me, I had to TAKE THE F TRAIN all the way in from Queens to get to mid-town. It might have taken 30 minutes or more, and those plastic seats are slightly uncomfortable. Fortunately, a friend drove back. I’m still mad they didn’t play at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium however, because then I could have walked over in my pajamas.

As for missing this incarnation of live Crimson, don’t worry yourself on that account: They’re not for you. Too intense and blatantly musical. Too many wailing Fripp and Mel solos. You wouldn’t like them at all.
