I was there, with a friend. We arrived from Cluj, in Romania, the same morning, with a bus and we had the exact amount of money to be able to buy tickets for the concert. Nothing more. Food and a sleeping bag in a backpack. Spent all day in the park, in front of Petofi Csarnok (BTW, the package and title of the post have a small mistake and spell it Csamok), watching the stage getting built and setup, and then watching the sound check through the fence (they did Waiting Man for the sound check). Got a poster from the lady at the ticket store, still have it. Huge merchandising at the front, all KC albums, t-shirts, caps, everything. Canít buy anything. Then a pouring rain (Iím soaked) and fear theyíll cancel. Concert starts, finally. Iím in the front row, between Tony Levin and Adrian Belew. What is the thing that Trey Gunn plays? LTIA2, the drumming before the solo feels like a kick in the stomach and an earthquake, at the same time. Dinosaur: Adrian Belew is unleashed. Great connection between band & public. I canít believe Iím living this. BBOOM & THRAK: Tony Levin is unleashed. I had no idea that those monstrous sounds are made with a bowed double bass. Three of A Perfect Pair: perfect Fripp. Waiting Man: the expected fabulous drumming from Bruford, and incredible grooves from Pat Mastelotto. 21st Century Schizoid Man: the lady kisses Adrian Belew during his solo. AB moves his guitar to the side and continues soloing while this happens. Thela Hun Gin Jeet: thereís a small stumble at the beginning, the bass starts a bit later. Adrian Belew started the riff right from Elephant Talk, leaving Tony Levin with almost no time to put down the stick and pick up the bass. TL is in a hurry, AB laughs. Prism: Bruford is having fun. Show finished, TL & AB are signing posters in front of the bus. Iím at 3 meters from AB and for some reason I decide I donít need any autograph or other souvenir from this event. Sleep in the park, close to the stage, on the wet grass. In the morning, back to Romania by bus.
