Does anyone know if tour posters will be available in the online store? I attended the Chicago show on 9/25 and was disappointed that posters were not available. Plenty of t-shirt options, but at my age I canít say band t-shirts are a part of my attire like when I was in high school 30 plus years ago. I like momentoes from concerts I attend. Gig posters are a something I personally enjoy buying at a merch table, framing them, then hanging them on my wall where and I can look upon fondly and remember the show.

I am thirding the request for info on the Starless Box. Track listing, estimate of shipping date, or delay? Something besides endless caption contest postings would be nice, thanks
Sound and venues
:: Posted by emory0 on September 27, 2014
As for Best Buy Theater in Times Square, it was for me one of the better venues for seeing King Crimson. It feels remarkably small, even from the mezzanine where I was seated. Sound was good too, and once again I have to give it to whoever the sound guy is: At itís loudest the band wasnít earsplitting. Also, bass notes arenít trapped under the overhanging balcony as in Town Hall, a few blocks away.
Hey...next time around how about Crimson doing a concert in the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, which has started to allow musical events again. This would have the merely coincidental benefit of being a mere block from my house (I could walk home during intermission)!

From Sid Smithís description of "The Sailorís Tale" on Islands:
"Fripp made two passes at a truly astonishing solo. Broiled in a lacquer of short delay VCS3 sweep, spring reverb & chopped repeat of Sinfield & Hendricksonís devising, the guitar sounded like a steroid-enhanced banjo & utterly unlike anything else which Fripp had done before in Crimson."
What can I say? The idea stuck with me. Other instances of the style that come to mind are "NYCNY" from Daryl Hallís Sacred Songs & "The Facts of Life" from The Power to Believe.

I have to say, Tony, pant legs torn of below the knees may well be a good look for you. Iím not sure that my own public is prepared to accept it.

As the only current member with no previous experience performing Crimson material, do you find your position in the band intimidating?

Just want to say to King Crimson, thank you for this tour and the Madison show at the Barrymore. Iíve seen some good concerts in my day, including King Crimson - this was the best. My favorite moment was Mel Collins throwing his jacket offstage and hiking up his suspenders like he was ready to fight somebody. My son said, "there will never be a heavier concert". I was thrilled. For me, this was just perfection.
I sincerely hope this is not your final tour, but if it is, you went out completely on top of your game. Thank you King Crimson.

Crimson was amazing. The Chicago audience, at times annoying. Not so great sound for me at times. Seating? Felt like economy class in an airplane. So glad I went.
The evening started out with honorable performances up until VROOOM. Then the delight kicked in for me. I wouldnít have thought a baritone sax could add so much to Crimson but there it was. Silly smile on my face the whole rest of the evening. Thank you Mr. Collins. Co-conspirators were also great. Pat was a beast.
Song choice and order was, IMO, inspired. In particular, Starless as the last play of regulation time.
I was main floor about center and the drums were indeed front and center for me, crystal clear and powerful. At times, couldnít hear Tony or Robert, though, over the drums (on Red, no less :-(). I guess you canít stop people from yelling at quiet points but it annoyed and broke the mood for me.
All worth it though. An experience I greatly enjoyed and will remember.
