Teatro Metropolitan

Gigs in Mexico are always a special occasion for King Crimson and it’s somehow fitting that we get a special version of Islands, one that in this tender ballad’s most intimate moments you could almost hear a pin drop such is the attention to the song paid by a rapt audience. A beautiful vocal and superb accompaniment from Jeremy Stacey and Mel Collins.

Moctezuma gains the upper hand
This night’s second set might be the shortest this incarnation of KC has ever played- a mere five songs. Clearly there were ongoing health issues within the team. A solid, fun evening with remarkable performances of TCOL, Starless and 21CSM, but also curiously conservative in terms of song choice. A fine 2 1/2 hours of music. Mexico City, 24 August SET 1 1- Hell Hounds of Krim 2- Neurotica 3- Red 4- Cirkus 5- Drumzilla 6- Radical Action 2 7- Level 5 8- Moonchild (+cadenzas) 9- Epitaph 10- Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, pt. 2 SET 2 1- The ConstruKction of Light 2- Indiscipline 3- Islands 4- Starless 5- The Court of the Crimson King (+ coda) ENCORE 21st Century Schizoid Man

One of the best nights in the Teatro Metropolitan.
It was a sublime experience to be in the Crimson King court inside the Metropolitan Theater of Mexico City. Despite the torturous revenge of Emperor Moctezuma against foreigners in some members of the band, they continued working on stage to offer wonderful concerts. They gave us an example of bold professionalism and a master class of talent forged with discipline and love for music. Neurotica sound shocking, me gusta!. Islands is sublime, I loved Jakko's new acoustic guitar arrangement. One of the most incredible moments during the concert is when the Metropolitan theater is dyed red during Starless and seeing the 2 statues on the sides of the stage dyed red, it is impressive! In 2017, I was so focused on the stage that I didn't know what my red environment was like, this time in the distance I could appreciate it. King Crimson thanks for coming to your house

Levin night !!!
From all the nights in Mexico, starless of the 24th could't have been better, with everyone in perfect synchrony and particularly Tony's bass at the highest level.
