King Crimson Releases Limited-Edition “Tour Box” Set With Latest Tour

The Elements Of King Crimson Tour BoxThe legendary progressive rock band King Crimson is promoting its The Elements of King Crimson tour with a limited edition two-CD “tour box” set of performances — some previously unreleased on CD — from the entirety of its long, storied career.

The performances are culled from a wide variety of sources — everything from alternate takes and extracts to live recordings — from 1969 through 2014.

The work of several bassists are represented on the set, which covers a 45-year-time span. Bassists John Wetton, Peter Giles, Tony Levin, Greg Lake, Boz Burrell all appear on songs from different Crimson eras, and Levin has the low end on the The Elements of King Crimson tour.

The box set, which also includes a 24-page booklet, will be available for purchase at tour dates and at select online outlets, including Amazon and Burning Shed.
