    KING CRIMSON EUROPEAN TOUR 2018

    https://www.dgmlive.com/news/European_Tour_Dates

    Next week, King Crimson will be announcing the dates for next year's European tour. This will visit Poland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands, Italy, France and UK.

    Dates will be announced on Wednesday 22nd November and pre-sale VIP tickets will go on sale on 23rd November. We will be offering both the Royal Package and also a new Courtiers Package. Our Royal Packages and Courtiers Packages in the UK and Germany will be sold through the local promoters. All other countries will be available directly from DGMLIVE as before.

    1,000 Club Members will receive a 10% discount. Please check your inboxes, lest this oh-so-important information has been diverted into spam or clutter! There are still some places available for anyone wishing to join. We hope to see you there!

    Thanks. I missed them last time round, unenthused by what I'd heard to date, but am more interested now.

    I could do without all this VIP/Courtiers malarkey, but I understand it makes money for the band, which makes tours viable and perhaps keeps ticket prices lower for the rest of us.

    Curious to see what this second tier of special packages is, as you now have the courtiers package and the royal package.

    Figure there’s a market for it and if it helps this operation keep doing this awesome thing they’re doing, more power to them!

    That is weirdly exactly what the Crim show will look like, both in the house and on the stage.

    hmmm so free show probably in Poznan Poland eh? any tips on getting to Poland cheaply? my GF is interested as she is into travelling so could be a good reason to take a little European jaunt.

    Where did you get the idea that it is free?

    they do a family and friends show at the start of each tour free to members of the 1000 club. it will probably be the day before the first listed show though they have not emailed us yet so could be different this time.

    Rehearsals have begun. www.dgmlive.com
    *** Addressed today: KC repertoire material not yet played by this incarnation, some never performed live, and one of the three most difficult guitar parts in the KC book. ***

    Coolness!

    Sorry that I'll be here in the States. But please enjoy!

    so the teasing of what they're adding to the repertoire begins! Curious as to what pieces fall into Fripp's list of top 3 hardest guitar parts.....Fracture is number one, but we shall certainly see what else he thinks is similarly difficult! Whatever it is, good to see Mr. Bill back in action.....albeit those of us that perhaps hoped they might switch to a four drummer setup (if only for the utter insanity of it), can see that they are clearly sticking to 3 drummers with bill on keys. we certainly shall see!

    I would have to think that FraKctured would have to be in the top three hardest guitar parts, but I'm not a guitar player...

    Fripp's solo section in LTIA IV is nasty too.

    Yeah, FraKctured is the first one that came on my mind. In fact Trey Gunn is on the record saying that it is THE hardest guitar part in Crimson catalogue.

    One of the night's at The Supper Club in NYC they played those back to back. I haven't been the same since.

    Here's hoping the will play The Night watch in Amsterdam again, just like they did so many years ago. And yes, tickets were expensive ....

    "Metal" Crimson is definitely my favorite Crimson, doesn't matter which version of the band. I'd love to hear them do "The Great Deceiver" live.

    Least we forget Groon? Ambitious for 1970 IMO.

    Surprised we haven't heard Groon yet, especially considering it's live history as an epic drum solo venue.

    groon would be awesome. my mind definitely went to Frakctured on reading the post larks IV would also be great.

    outside of the most difficult guitar bits I have been wanting catfood to be added for awhile. feel like that is one of the biggest "classic" era tracks yet to be played.

  25. #25
    I'd love them to play all 5 Larks pieces back to back.....
