King Crimson and the Zappa Band Reveal Tour Details

King Crimson 2020

After unveiling the lineup last month, King Crimson and the Zappa Band have revealed the details of their North American summer tour. The groups, anchored by Tony Levin and Scott Thunes, will be focusing on the East Coast with four Canadian dates to close out the run.

“The summer tour will be a throwback one for us in a few ways; great to be going back to outdoor venues, some of them the ‘sheds’ we played in the Eighties,” Levin stated. “And we’ll be traveling by tour bus, old school! As for what pieces we’ll play, that hasn’t been decided yet, but will likely be a wide selection from the 50 years of Crimson repertoire. With seven players on stage, we can cover it all.”

The trek begins June 4th in Clearwater, Florida and will make its way north with stops through the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and New England. The final U.S. date is slated for July 5th in Chicago, after which the bands will head to Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa, and Rama in Canada.
