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. . .

Thank you very much for this little KC gem. This Monday rendez-vous is always a pleasure. As we mostly had 1969-1972 or post 1977 material so far, I hope this one is the beginning of a 1973-1974 Crimson Read more

Really nice. May I be so bold as to suggest the same treatment for Cirkus one day perhaps, Mr. Stormy?

Very glad the audience recording was incorporated into the upload as the natural reverb from the venue really adds a lot of character to this Frippertronics show. The atmosphere and attentive audience appears to have made the difference and really brought Read more
