Greek Theatre

2017 was the last time King Crimson played the Greek. Back then LTIA opened the second set of the evening but tonight it’s the second number after the Drumson’s introductory salvo. Mel Collins’ rendition of Tequila goes down especially well with the packed crowd in a rare instance of audience participation. Who says ‘humour is not permitted’?

For Anyone Doubting...
For any people out there who accuse King Crimson of being po-faced and serious, they should take a listen to this. Mel's solo with his rendition of "Tequila" complete with audience response goes to show that one never knows what to expect in a Crimson show and that they sure have a great sense of humour!

Larks Tongues In Aspic for open show
I was reading that in some shows King Crimson starts with Pictures of City. It's a song that I like very much; but there is no comparison of starting the Show with Larks' Tongues In Aspic Part 1. It will be the first time of King Crimson in Chile, and the album Larks Tongues In Aspic is a brand or a classic. Curiously, this album was not released in Chile, so it came as a treasure from Argentina. As we speak Spanish in Chile, the name was a bit tangled and the translation also, this album was known as El Sol (The Sun). The advantage that Larks Tongues In Aspic Part 1 has is that an instrumental song is like a universal language. It is an instant and magical communication.

Long time fan ,first live show
I've been a fan of King Crimson since 1970 but had not seen the band play live until last week at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. It was an amazing experience. The musicianship was breathtaking. As a 60 year old bass player I was so impressed with Fripp, Levin and Collins, all more than a decade my senior. I took my 25 year old son to the show. He is a drummer and was floored by the triple threat front line and the precision with which they played. The songs KC played from the first two albums brought back great memories of my youth and learning bass. The whole set was tremendous. I hear plans are in the works for a 2020 tour. Hopefully they return to southern California, we will be there.
