Thank God this tour is finally over.....now maybe Robert can get back to the discipline of catching up on his diary. What is going on with the king of rabbits???
No live dvd comments from Oz!

andyfromozz, no need to be so pissed off. I am from Oz & I certainly wasnít expecting a live dvd! Surely a band playing live for the first time is going to ítest the waterí so to speak? To film a gig this early, in my mind, may be a touch risky perhaps, not to mention the financial cost & other matters of filming íliveí as well. In regards to your comment ííseems to be nothing more than a colosall cock-tease with no promise of an orgasm at the end..." Well, there is nothing wrong with that surely? Nothing like a little bit of ítitillationí me thinks! Or to be more precise, some discipline perhaps?
No DVD in the pipeline...

I fell a couple of tears when I read those words from Sid. I canít believe why the Crims not filming a show for a Blu-ray release. Take Dream Theater - they have just released a live BD from their last tour, and the tour is not even over yet! Believe it or not, we need live footage of this seven-headed-beast called King Crimson... Itís a disaster not showing the world what a Great band KC are, still in 2014. 👍💿💿

"itís 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?"
Your previous entries to the Guestbook have seemed quite thoughtful and positive, so I assume that in spite of the ease with which you might feel an intentional slight directed at your countrymates personally, that you have come to your senses, understanding that decisions on DVD releases are not on par with other general considerations as they relate to humane behaviour toward fellow inhabitants of this globe.
Full disclosure: I am an American by default but was not among the lukcy, having chosen long ago not to live in America, so being too far away to make the trip. Your default locale is unfortunate as it relates to probably hardly ever, if ever, being able to make such journeys just to attend a concert. I fully understand the frustration; the content in the expression of that frustration, on the other hand, does seem a bit over the top. Unreasonable sense of entitlement? Well, you answered that partially with your followup: "Maybe?"
To wit: "colossal cock-tease"? That is an expression of what has come to be termed "rape culture" which includes the sentiment that just because she turns you on, you got something coming. So yes, the analogy you have chosen would certainly indicate an unreasonable sense of entitlement.
On the other hand, if itís more emotionally expedient, do like I do: As a Yank, I use my one-gazillionth Cherokee blood to imagine I am not a person of privilege. You could just think of yourself as part of the UKís ongoing prison colony project, still being denied the true spoils of the commonwealth.
Madison WI show
:: Posted by eigerblade on October 09, 2014
My wife and I went to the Madison King Crimson concert on Sept. 23rd. What an amazing show. This is the third time Iíve been fortunate enough to see King Crimson in concert (the 70s and the 90s for the other two) and this concert was incredible. Really nice to be able to see Robert smile after the show, and to be able to buy a shirt and cap from his sister at the merchandise table! This will remain one of the top concert experiences in my life. Thank you to Robert and to all the band members for an unforgettable night. (And, but the way, I liked the fact that nobody was holding up their phones to record, but everyone was actually in the moment.) There arenít enough superlatives to adequately describe the show in Madison.

Did anyone else notice that Jakko had somehow managed to play that incredibly difficult long rapid Fripp riff in the middle section of Larksí Tongues Part One ? He repeated it flawlessly, a number of times ! Phew weee.
Amazing that anyone else can play that brilliantly bizarre piece of music.
I suspect that took a LOT of rehearsing to get right.

I have been wanting to see King Crimson live for 35 years, but every time I was near a gig, circumstances intervened. I thought I was going to miss Seattle this time around as well--I was laid off from my job a couple of months ago and have yet to find another. Out of the blue, several friends who knew my situation got together and got me a VIP ticket.
To all the Crims I say THANK YOU. At the Moore I was literally in tears during the first part of Larkís Tongues I--this is music I have been enjoying my entire adult life, and to have it pounded into my sternum so joyfully at close range by the King himself was...itís not so much that I have no words as that there are so many I donít know which ones to use.
I cannot and will not ask any more of you, but I will definitely continue to be an audient--and any further work that comes out, if there is a King Crimson "future," will certainly part me from my hard-earned cash.
Bless you, gentleman, and thanks again.

So, the tour is over and it would appear that itís gone rather well.
Whenís the 2015 Europe tour announced?
:: 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. Iíve 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 Lakeís & Wettonís 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 ídeliveredí 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.
