clearly I won't be at any of these, but! I'm glad to see they are continuing to exist. Hope the free songs per gig continue too!

Me either.  From your post, I was not aware those songs were free (thanks!).  Went to their website and downloaded a few, especially the one from the show I was at.  Having time to listen more intently, I hear a little more improvisation at times than I remember during the show...which is a good thing to me!

OK, they posted the European 2018 schedule...hope some of you can make it, a must for any Crimson fan and for those that have never seen them (IMHO).


In addition to the regular tickets the band will be offering two packages - The Royal Package (as before) and a new Courtiers Package to try and prevent mass scalping of the best tickets.

Ahh nuts. I missed them the last time they visited Copenhagen due to back problems (I even had a ticket!!!), and now it looks as if it was my only chance to see Bob and cohorts in the flesh

Hope you all can make it for sure!

Saw them on the Fall tour of the USA 2017 tour and they were a beast!  I believe the European tour will still be the 8 man lineup (3 drummers) with Bill Rieflin back at keyboard duties who did not make the Fall 2017 USA tour for reasons I am not sure of.  I rarely go to concerts anymore, but could not miss this when it came to town and I think it was the best show I ever saw/heard (although some of the 70s shows I saw were in altered states of mind and don't remember a darn thing...wink, wink).

Regarding Bill missing the Fall USA tour, I would give a positive shout out to Chris Gibson who filled in for him with only a 2 week notice before the tour started!  Can you imagine getting that call from Fripp and Co. and have to cram in all the songs they used on their sets.  Job well done Chris!

I wonder if they are planning to record all their gigs for a future release, such as boxed set. In any case, they won't do that in Greece

I preferred going for Amsterdam but the ticket's comission was insane, anyway I settled for Berlin. Man am I waiting for this...

I see they have by-passed the North-East of England once again. I think they might have had a good chance of filling the Sage in Gateshead?

Just saw on Crimson's website, they have added 2 shows.  A second show in Amsterdam and another one in London.
