Originally Scheduled to go at 8.15 the start of this open air gig was delayed for over an hour because of bad weather.

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!

Thanks for a beautiful evening
I was there, with a friend. We arrived from Cluj, in Romania, the same morning, with a bus and we had the exact amount of money to be able to buy tickets for the concert. Nothing more. Food and a sleeping bag in a backpack. Spent all day in the park, in front of Petofi Csarnok (BTW, the package and title of the post have a small mistake and spell it Csamok), watching the stage getting built and setup, and then watching the sound check through the fence (they did Waiting Man for the sound check). Got a poster from the lady at the ticket store, still have it. Huge merchandising at the front, all KC albums, t-shirts, caps, everything. Can’t buy anything. Then a pouring rain (I’m soaked) and fear they’ll cancel. Concert starts, finally. I’m in the front row, between Tony Levin and Adrian Belew. What is the thing that Trey Gunn plays? LTIA2, the drumming before the solo feels like a kick in the stomach and an earthquake, at the same time. Dinosaur: Adrian Belew is unleashed. Great connection between band & public. I can’t believe I’m living this. BBOOM & THRAK: Tony Levin is unleashed. I had no idea that those monstrous sounds are made with a bowed double bass. Three of A Perfect Pair: perfect Fripp. Waiting Man: the expected fabulous drumming from Bruford, and incredible grooves from Pat Mastelotto. 21st Century Schizoid Man: the lady kisses Adrian Belew during his solo. AB moves his guitar to the side and continues soloing while this happens. Thela Hun Gin Jeet: there’s a small stumble at the beginning, the bass starts a bit later. Adrian Belew started the riff right from Elephant Talk, leaving Tony Levin with almost no time to put down the stick and pick up the bass. TL is in a hurry, AB laughs. Prism: Bruford is having fun. Show finished, TL & AB are signing posters in front of the bus. I’m at 3 meters from AB and for some reason I decide I don’t need any autograph or other souvenir from this event. Sleep in the park, close to the stage, on the wet grass. In the morning, back to Romania by bus.
