Ferenc Riesz, who was at the gig, recalls Just before KC appeared on the stage, a beautiful rainbow appeared in the sky...They started with the Talking drum. It was short, but featured an excellent Fripp solo !!! Then came LTiA 2. It sounded like in USA ! Especially, Levin's bass line was remarkable."
"Thanks for waiting in the rain. We appreciate it." says Belew after a truly scorching blast of Talking Drum and LTIA.
If Crimson had sounded a little tired and irritable the previous evening, then tonight they're firing on all cylinders. And then some. B’Boom borders on being one of the most percussive work-outs Bruford and Mastelotto have turned out so far, and Thrak has some of especially acerbic interplay. The band play around with the audience allowing the silences to stretch out a bit and raise the excitement levels just about as high as they’ll go.
The reappearance of Three Of A Perfect Pair is welcome with Robert taking a solo spot. As Ferenc notes “Adrian omitted the line "they make a study in despair"; did he forget the text ???” Schizoid Man was “a great success, the audience was singing with them and a girl ran on the stage and kissed Adrian...He looked happy with that.”
All told - a stonkingly good top-notch gig!
