Entry, First Avenue, Minneapolis June 20, 1984
Written by Mark Newstrom
The concert was preceded by various videos, one of which was Andy Summers and Robert Fripp performing (?) from "I Advance Masked." The ballerinas were lovely and lithe, I can't say anything about the guitarists.
The concert was pure joy, including three moments seared in my memory:
Having just finished a number ("Elephant Talk" I believe), Adrian addressed the crowd:
AB: So do you like the weird stuff?
Aud: YEA, applause, etc.
AB: Well I do too..
At this point, AB makes another strange guitar noise, but his reaction is total dismay; not the sound he expected. He then realizes he's been had, and looks over to see RF almost falling off his stool trying to contain himself.
AB: That's Fripp 3, Belew 2... (audience erupts laughing and clapping)
Moment B) Robert absolutely shredding the guitar/violin solo section in "Lark's Tongues in Aspic, part II." Certainly seemed that "the Muse had descended."
Moment C) no flashes, a receptive audience, Robert stays on with the band at the end. We all salute each other. . .

I didnít expect enjoying this one as much as I did. I loved the album when it came out but it has since gotten less airplay than the following KCounterparts (Thrak Attack & ProjeKcts) that I love for their improvisationnal Read more

Iím not ashamed to say that when Thrak hit the retailers in 1995 and I purchased my copy I didnít buy in to what I was hearing. Sometimes what we are seeking internally, perhaps even spiritually is not aligned Read more

What a coincidence! I havenít listened to Cirkus in years, but I was just reminiscing about Frippís cool sixteenth note run as one of the first examples of his hard picking style Read more

15 years after this concert I recall this concert as my 2nd Crim-Concert (the year before I was in Stuttgart-Liederhalle), and I remember how it "rocked". As a Billy-B-fan I was first shocked when I saw some yellow Tama-drums built Read more

I am glad to see that my boot of December 9, 1981 made it to the official bootleg series. When the Japanese tour came out in August, I was surprise to learn in Sid comments that no recording of December Read more

But endearing in a merry go round sort of way. I, and a few others can & will appreciate tunes like this from time to time.
