Stick Men and Adrian Belew Power Trio Unite for “2 of a Perfect Trio” Tour

Two of a Perfect Trio TourTony Levin and the Stick Men will be teaming up with the Adrian Belew Power Trio for the “2 of a Perfect Trio” tour this Fall, which will make its way from coast to coast and into Canada between September and October.

Combined, the group features three King Crimson members and the tour name is a play on Crimson’s album Three of a Perfect Pair

Besides seeing Levin on the Chapman Stick, bass lovers will get a kick out of Julie Slick, who will be holding it down for Adrian Belew. (Check out this video).

Crimson fans will also get a treat as an encore.

“[There will be] an extended Crim-centric encore featuring the 3 Crimson members,” Levin writes on his blog, “but also joined by the other three musicians to make an ensemble eerily remeniscient of the 90’s King Crimson. Minus, of course, some of the massive talents of that tour … but we will do our best to shake the house!”
