UK live dates AND in Cardiff. Amazing news on an otherwise grey day. Thank you Robert and everyone else. Cancer permitting I will be there. Today is a good day.
Europen tour graphic

Weird image for KC’s european tour.
Looks like Brad Holland’s. Definitely not P.J Crook’s...

Good to see the list of European gig venue!
The poster - in my view (and it is only my view) - is hideous! (and scary and ugly and....) Must be the worst graphic for anything KC have ever come up with.

This post is misplaced. If you want KC to play in this venue, the people to speak to are local promoters and/or the venue management, not the band themselves.

Most of the 2014 live music has become my favorite renditions!This coming from a guy that knew and likeICOTCK,then bought a cutout of Red in a dollar bin at Woolworths in the late 70’s. That is when I became a fanatic buying everything I could get my hands on (still have my half speed masters). I got to see UK.I got to see The Band Bruford a couple time and one time Allan Holdsworth bought me a beer.I also saw Tony with Bill when they did an evening of YES music. Finally I got to see KC live traveling to Cleveland,then seeing and recording them on the TV show Friday’s the same week.I saw them in Cleveland again the night George Harrison died.I saw them on the Horde tour and finally in 2004 traveling from Pittsburgh to Detroit.Best show of my life. Since I did not get a chance to see the 2014 tour I will say a little prayer for a DVD.
Starless ,TCOL, and The Power to Believe are my all time favs.I am probably one of a few that have become huge TOOL fans because of Crimson. Beatles are number one with me and Crimson then TOOl becoming distant second and third. Just curios if anyone else had the same Paridium about the new versions?
Venue in Warsaw area :)

This has been already discussed by RF in "Uncut" last year and I posted an entry about it here, but let me give it another shot:
- a small concert hall 40 km from downtown Warsaw (Grodzisk Mazowiecki)
- 375 seats (too small?)
- the Mayor is a huge rock fan - that is why Gordon Haskell, Billy Cobham, Eric Gales and Wishbone Ash performed there, among others.
I attended the amazing Wishbone Ash gig in May 2013 - very chamber and still very powerful.
How about that ?
A Missing Texture

Listening to Live At The Orpheum filled me with an overwheming sense of sadness that Mel Collins had been absent from things Crimso for forty-odd years. What a waste.
LOL Super Bowl

Sunday, during the Super Bowl half-time activities, Dave Weigel (who has written some excellent articles on the history of prog) tweeted "Robert Fripp for Super Bowl half time show 2016."

I think a lot about the varying careers of musicians I’ve admired and wonder why things turned out this way or that way. Of course, one reason we admire Robert so much is that he persevered and kept his ideas alive through the years, despite all kinds of difficulty.
Lately, I’ve been listening to Dave Stewart. Of course, he did a lot of classic prog work with Egg, Hatfield, National Heath, and so on. After 1980, he went on to create some tasty pop arrangements. Actually, I wonder if the Vicar should tour with Stewart-Gaskin? It could be "the return of Baroque pop tour." Maybe Sir Paul would even show up.
Dave Stewart led me to revisit Alan Gowen’s work. I did not appreciate his playing back in the late 1970’s, probably because I preferred Stewart’s more prog-oriented style. But now I realize what a good composer and player Gowen was: very fluid, playful, and light-footed. It is a terrible shame that he died young (leukaemia) and so impressive that he worked on a final disk in the weeks he had left. I listened to the title track of that disk (Before a Word was Said) and it is beautifully composed and performed.
The fact that very few people have listened to Gowen’s clips, made me feel sad that he had been largely forgotten. But not quite. Looking around, I see that the rapper Ab-Soul sampled Gowen and Hopper’s Two Rainbows Daily album. The track is Time is of the Essence. Very nice indeed and it cheered me up. Rappers seem to have very broad interests!
Crimson, London 2015
:: Posted by brighton on January 31, 2015
If the rumours are true and Crimson will tour the UK later this year then I’m confused by the possible decision to avoid London to give the UK overall more of a look-in. Would it not make sense to play venues such as Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow etc and also London?? A venue in the ’London area’ would be just as difficult for Londoners as it would be for all southern folk as the main transport links all head there!!
