Intimate hot date.
This was my fifth King Crimson show in 2017, the first 4 being in Mexico City, so it was really contrasting having 3000 plus people in a Theater versus a few hundred on the Friends and Familiy show.
Lark's One was really great, is still feel goosebumps every time I hear the intro to this song live, and it was even more special in a intimate surrounding such as this show. Exceptional moments for me were to hear Breathless with this line up, it was totally unexpected an a pleasant surprise. However the peak moment came when Moonchild was played followed by Tony Levin and jeremy Stacey cadenzas into The Letters, for me the sequence worked out beautifully. And oh boy when they opened the second set with Discipline was a dream come true, it reminded me of the early eighties shows when Crimson used this song as the set opener.
All in all a wonderful experience and I'm really grateful to the band, the management and all the people working at DGM for making this kind of events possible, I really felt like a friend of the band during the show. A big thanks to Pat and Tony for signing my Chicago cd at the end of the show.
