Renowned progressive rock band King Crimson will hit the road this summer for a U.S. tour that was originally supposed to take place in 2020 before the pandemic hit. King Crimson will be joined by The Zappa Band featuring alumni from late guitarist Frank Zappa’s bands for a bulk of The Music Is Our Friend Tour.

The King Crimson lineup for the six-week tour will consist of guitarist Robert Fripp, bassist Tony Levin, multi-instrumentalists Mel Collins and Jakko Jakszyk as well as drummers Jeremy Stacey, Gavin Harris and Pat Mastelotto. Meanwhile, The Zappa Band features FZ alums bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalists Mike Keneally and Robert Martin and guitarist Ray White joined by drummer Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers and guitarist Jamie Kime (Zappa Plays Zappa).

King Crimson kicks off the run in Florida with shows in Clearwater on July 22, Delray Beach on July 23, St. Augustine on July 24 and Orlando on July 26. A performance in Atlanta on July 27 will be followed by stops in Nashville, Fort Worth, Cedar Park (Texas), Greenwood Village (Colorado) and Sandy (Utah).

The Zappa Band joins the tour in California for co-bills in Concord on August 5 and Los Angeles on August 6. King Crimson then goes it alone in Scottsdale on August 7. From there, both groups team up for late-August concerts in Saratoga Springs, New York; Northampton, Massachusetts; Canandaigua, New York; Lewiston, New York; Rochester Hills, Michigan; Highland Park, Illinois and Milwaukee. The tour concludes with King Crimson/The Zappa Band September shows in Cleveland; Huber Heights, Ohio; Holmdel, New Jersey; New York City; Boston and Washington D.C.

“The Crimson Beast of Terror has woken from its enforced slumbering and is venturing out to stomp flat the psyches of innocents not yet experienced in the hammering onslaught of King Crimson’s uncompromising pounding — bish! bish! bish! — before turning on a beat to jellify hearts with gut-wrenching passion and soul-squeezing epic unfoldings to remind us that we are all mere subjects in the unfolding drama of the universe’s unfathomable mysteries while simultaneously rocking out and having a great time bopping about with Tony and Bobby and Gavin and Jakko and Mel and Pat and Jezza, too,” Fripp wrote in a statement as per Rolling Stone.

I debated coming to LA and making it a vacation trip, but decided to keep it local...the ticket sale places had descent seats starting at $250, good ones were $350 to $500 (nothing in the floor seats in front of the stage). I decided to go on the Concord Pavilion box office site and purchased two tickets for $197 each in the Box Seats Row B right behind and above the floor on a aisle (my favorite...lol) with taxes, service charge, and on-line fees they were $500...plus they gave me a link for a hotel room near by for $100... :D

Scored tix for the LA show.
Went for the C note price - $125 total.
9th row in Sec B. Center.
B section is quite close in the first 10row.

I hope they let us take pics of Zappa Band.

Looks like the Concord and LA shows are near sellouts already.
I don't think they opened Sec. C, or the side terrace seats at the Greek(LA). The venue has less than 6,000 seats.
They'll probably add more cheaps at some point.

Concord has a huge lawn area above the amphitheater that they sometimes open up to greater capacity but I am not sure they will do that with COVID protocols... :idea:

∆ Yes.
Maybe around a 3,000 seat limit. Or half house of the capacity.


Vaccination proof required?

Masks required everywhere in the venue, with the exception of your seat?

Questions, questions...

Someone on fb said Crimson will only get a 90min set.
They usually play for 160min with a break between sets.(no support)
It's a three and one half hour event in LA.(7:30-11pm)

My guess.....

CGT - 25min
ZB - 50min
KC - 115min

I am sure something similar will happen in Concord since there are homes near by and they implemented time ordinances as the homes were built close to the venue... :evil:
