    A briefer set when touring with another act on the bill wouldn't be surprising.

    My wife always love these shows. Her favorite was a Brand X show that had around 100-110 people and six were women (we both counted at one point). At the break she was in the restroom with two others and they represented half the female audience.

    Looks like they're mixing up the setlist some. Gavin Harrison said in an interview:
    "We're probably going to work on about 36-37 songs. Although of course we won't play them all at every concert, we've got lots of songs that we may or may not play every night. Usually Robert Fripp sends us a setlist in the afternoon of the songs that he picked for that evening, but it's quite different from night to night."

    ^Good to hear. Still hoping to hear something on haven’t heard yet from this incarnation.

    (But of course I’ll be happy with whatever is played!)
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    I'm stoked for this
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Watching the Radical Action Blu-ray today and absolutely understand Fripps choice in having Jakko in this lineup. He brings his "A" game on those songs. Not saying that Adrian wouldn't have been good, but just don't think he would have fit in this incarnation as well.

    The KC with Ade era was about doing something that Crimso had not done before. Pushing boundaries/new sounds. This is a nostalgia trip and Ade would not fit the old school KC thats being presented here. Just like Jakko fails on the Ade songs they attempt here. Jakko is best emulating Lake and Wetton.

    Dont get me wrong either... I'll take this nostalgia trip any day. I love the prospect of seeing KC reenact their 70s persona on a grand scale like this

    I think Jakko does Ade stuff cool. He changes it up and makes it his own

    sure, probably as good as Ade would do Lake and Wetton

    A thoroughly professional show as usual, tonight here in Atlanta at the beautiful Fox theater. The California Guitar Trio was very enjoyable, and their version of Pink Floyd's "Echoes" was was the highlight of the evening for me. Crimson's set list offered nothing new, unfortunately. In fact, I'm pretty sure all of those songs were played the last time they were in Atlanta. When I go to see groups like this it's to have a chance to hear some songs that I haven't heard before in a live context. When Yes decides to play the same old stuff, I stay home. There's been a few tours like that in the last 10 years. Upside though, I ran into a number of old friends that I hadn't seen in a year or more including my friend Mike, who I went to the show with, whom you all know as Rushfan here. So I would say the highlight for me was seeing old friends and watching the California Guitar Trio. Crimson "remained consistent". ITCOTCK wound up being my fave from their sets.

    Did The Zappa Band play? I'm as excited to see them as King Crimson.

    They're not on the tour until the California dates, and then the second half of the tour beginning in late August.

    It was great to see you again Sean! This show did seem similar to the 2019 outing. Always a great performance from the band, personally I would have loved to see them do something like The Night Watch, Lament, or Great Deceiver but I knew that was not going to happen. The treat of the night for me was Echoes performed by California Guitar Trio. That was different for me!

    Sean - good luck with the new job! Let me know when you get started in Suwanee…

    False equivalence. Jakko is willing to do Adrian's songs, and Ade had no interest in performing Lake and Wetton.

    Belew did a good job with a Haskell-sung piece, and their voices are nothing alike. I think he could have done a nice job with the 70s repertoire.

    I asked the merch lady if they had any and she said those are "online only".
