Chicago - EnoMan
:: Posted by TheMarkedMan on June 07, 2014
Thanks EnoMan. $90.00 is do-able... just (Iím paying to take my nephew as well and I have a buddy flying out all the way from Colorado and we have a 3.5 hour drive to Chicago). The prices I had been seeing for Chicago were more than I have would paid to see Miles Davis resurrect from the dead to play a show.
I wonder if the tour is really going to be limited to these 17 locations or will shows be added? Thereís certainly opportunities in the schedule to add shows. Itís as if most of the states east of California all the way to Pennsylvania momentarily ceased to exist when they announced these shows. Ok, thereís Illinois and... Wisconsin? Really? Wisconsin? Whatís so special about Wisconsin? Itís not as if the cheddar is really all that great compared to the real English stuff and gosh, Madison is literally on Chicagoís doorstep. Weird, just weird.

Where did you see that it was a farewell tour? Frankly, my information is limited to these excruciatingly teasing rehearsal pics.

Tickets for the Chicago show arenít being sold through ticketmaster. They are being sold through etix.com.
Chicago Sep 25/26 - Scalpers Only?
:: Posted by TheMarkedMan on June 07, 2014
I still do not see any tickets on tickemaster for the September shows in Chicago though Madison Wi is available already... I DO see tickets at absolutely outrageous prices on scalper, ah um, "broker" sites for the Chicago shows. This leads me to believe that scalpers, ah um, "brokers" got all of the Chicago tickets. Anyone happen to know whether this is the case? Sid???
Tickets for Chicago are here
A soundboard recording is the next best thing

How I would love to attend the Boston or Madison shows (or both!). I have history with both places (live in the former, grew up in the latter), and saw crimsonís THRAK tour show at the Orpheum Boston.
Sadly, the $200 ticket price, while understandable in light of the cost of touring these days, is just out of the question.
So, hereís my very best wishes to the Mighty Crim, and my hopes that a recording will be offered here on DGM before too long.
And Happy Birthday to Robert (belatedly) and to TLev!
Maybe My Third King Crimson Show

First was Denver May or Jun 1974. Power was cut at the height of Talking Drum :( Anyway, looks like Iíll have to make the 3.5 hour drive to Chicago though Ticketmaster does not yet have Chicago on sale as far as I can tell. Looks like there are some gaps in that schedule. Are those true rest days or opportunities for additional locations? Would sure love seeing you back at the Egyptian Room here in Indianapolis. Hey, you have a street named after you here King Crimson Court. Isnít that worthy of a visit?

when not so long ago Robert was retired (forever!) and it seemed like weíd never see our band again?
We would have happily paid the current asking price (many, if not most of us). I am *grateful* that the Spirit is rising and more than happy to pay the current price ($100 for SEA).
Itís curious as to how itís billed as a "Farewell tour" and yet thereís the "Past, Present and Future" line. Thoughts?
Hope to meet some of you freaks in Seattle.
Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy!
South American Tour

Greetings from Chile!
What a wonderful day!

Was it purely coincidence that tickets went on sale today, June 6th; National Donut Day?? Did our fearless lover of sweet confections plan this accordingly? I had the pleasure of walking a few short blocks from the Best Buy Theater, tickets in hand for 3 King Crimson shows, to Penn Station where New Yorkís only Krispy Kreme Donuts is located, and then received a free donut. KIng Crimson tickets and a free glazed raspberry filled donut in my possession at the same time...woo-hoo! A good day I tell ya, a very good day. Now speaking of coincidences, on September 20th, Asia, featuring John Wetton will be a few blocks away in Times Square performing at BB Kingís Club. For those who did not get tickets for that sold-out KC show, there is your alternative show. Or, also a few short blocks away, another one of Johnís former guitar playing bandmates, Allan Holdsworth will be at the Iridium Jazz Club. What a magical night in this magical city for all. Coincidence. I wonder. Whatever, another very good day to come.

If it seems like thereís been one almost every week lately, there has! A little research: four of the current Crims were born between mid May and mid June (as well as Bruford and Wetton). Expect another round...the other three are all in September, two on gig days.
