Teatro Carlo Felice Genova Italy

“It’s been a bit of a strange evening” says Adrian Belew[endtease] near the end of the show. What can he mean? Well, there are moments when things get shaky (Ade has a rather squelchy brown moment during Dinosaur) and there’s a slightly distracted quality to Crimson’s overall performance here, particularly through EleKtric.

Yet a minute later The Power To Believe II sees them embarking on a sublime voyage that goes to bliss and back in a little over seven minutes; Fripp launches a solo that takes him clean out of city and off into inner space.

Elsewhere, despite struggling with a back injury and the ongoing trauma of finding himself touring Europe, (blimey how did that happen?) the old goat guitarist turns in some vintage stuff; the superfast diddly-diddly bits (technical term) on LTIA; a revved-up blaster on FaKcts of Life – are all deserving of your attention and your hard earned money.

A surprisingly brisk Elephant Talk with an interesting middle section and a Frame By Frame (played by the Double Duo for the first time on DGMLive) positively glisten and sparkle. Italy was gripped by a heatwave during June 2003 and when Crimson took to the stage of the splendidly opulent Teatro Carlo Felice things inevitably got a little hotter.

WHO SAID WOMEN DON'T LIKE KING CRIMSON ?
For our group, this was the second hot date of the tour ( we were in Milano the day before),and,yes, as Ade said, it was a bit of a strange evening. For example, would you believe that a dog ( guess how it cold enter the Theatre ) began to bark furiously during " ProzaKc Blues " ? ( if you listen carefully the download,you can hear it ), causing laughter from Trey ( he looked at Pat as if to say : " this could only happen in Italy..." ProzaKc Barking Blues!"). Then, i remember the stunning solo from Robert during " Power To Believe 2 " and a enthralling version of " Dangerous Curves : a part of the audience began to clap hands quite out of time and i remember well Adrian answering shaking his head, as if to say..." no...please ! ". After that, we had the earthquake of " Lark's 4", the great acoustic version of "Three Of A Perfect Pair" from Ade and " Frame By Frame" played at the speed of sound ( both of them were not played the day before in Milano). And, then, after " Elephant Talk", to make the night even more remarkable, the female Crimheads in our group, Enrica and Stefania, exposed the banner : " Who said women don't like King Crimson ?" ( You can hear Ade reading it at the end of " Elephant Talk" in the download). Can i suppose that this fact influenced Sid Smith in saying that Genova had a lot of female Crimheads? Last surprise at the end of the show : Pat, after looking at us with great interest launched us his Pad with a dedication :" Hello to Italy, KC 2003 , Pat Mastelotto" ( that Pad is still on my wall, obviously on a Crimson background). Well, Genova was really a strange and miraculous show...

Unforgettable night !
A night unforgettable for me. In Genoa, my town, in the wonderful Teatro Carlo Felice,  my favourite incarnation of King Crimson in concert. Thank you for this incredible performance and for this excellent record! Massimo

Power Of Belief
This is an excellent sounding show. It`s good to hear a few old favourites at the end even if "Frame By Frame" is missing Tony`s background singing. A strange start to "Dangerous Curves" (equiptment problems?) but a very good perfomance. Sav

Short and Sweet review
Typing is my handicap, so here’s a (very) brief summary. Overall, the Kingston show is better. However, this set features the best Facts Of Life I’ve ever heard. Now, it’s up to you.
