Warner Theatre

Man, when you’re on, you’re on! If you want to get a perfect Frame By Frame look no further. All six members interlocking like some grandly intricate mechanism, so finely tuned and unerringly accurate.

The challenge for any band playing vintage material is to keep it sounding fresh and here Crimson does just that at several points on a setlist which features no less than seven numbers which predate the formation of the Double Trio.

Emerging out of the elegiac Two Sticks improv, in which Trey unconsciously quotes the opening of Exiles, Tony’s fumble to the intro to Elephant Talk is quickly corrected as the band embarks on a number that is constantly contrasting large gestural sweeps with small precise detail.

There’s a wonderful moment at the second verse of Indiscipline where an unexpected organ lick from Robert causes Adrian to laugh out loud between lines. As they are taking the applause Belew, elated and off-mic, says ‘Lots of train wrecks there!’
