King Crimson

In what seems to be a prog lover’s dream tour, King Crimson has unveiled the “Music Is Our Friend” tour. The five-week outing will see the band accompanied by the California Guitar Trio for the first half of the tour and The Zappa Band for the second half.

Crimson bassist Tony Levin shared the news saying things were “looking like the Good Old Days.” He also recently unveiled tour dates with the Levin Brothers and the Stick Men. The Zappa Band will be anchored by Scott Thunes, who performed bass and minimoog with Frank Zappa from 1981 to 1988.

The tour kicks off July 22nd in Clearwater, Florida and will cross the entire United States until they finish on September 11th at Washington, DC’s The Anthem.

In preparation for the tour, King Crimson has just released their album “Live in Chicago, June 28th, 2017” on their official YouTube Channel. Levin also posted his tour diary about the show, which he called “one of our best.”

    Saw The Levin Brothers a few weeks ago at The Sellersville Theater and really enjoyed it. Now looking forward to KC at The Mann in September! Already ordered tickets for Stickmen for April 2022 at The Sellersville Theater!
