ADRIAN BELEW ANNOUNCES MASSIVE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
Adrian Belew is happy to announce his first North American tour since the Crimson ProjeKCt tour of 2011. The tour starts on Oct 22 in Charlottesville, VA and ends on Dec 21 in Cincinnati, OH. The tour will span across 22 US States and 3 Canadian Provinces. A celebration of Adrian’s massive body of work past, present, and future. Adrian is touring with his Power Trio: Julie Slick on bass and drummer Tobias Ralph, both virtuoso musicians. No one plays their instruments like this band and this show will rock North America with burning performances and an introduction to Adrian’s new musical listening concept called FLUX:
“never the same twice”.
Adrian Belew is a legendary guitarist well-known for his diverse travels around the musical map. He is a multi-instrumentalist whose solo records are critically acclaimed. His moving singing voice and prolific songwriting has endeared a loyal fan base of music lovers. His music is being discovered everyday by more and more listeners thirsty for great music with a creative standard not often pushed by the commercial music industry.
Adrian first appeared on the guitar-world radar when he toured with Frank Zappa who later said, “Adrian reinvented electric guitar”. Adrian’s signature tones, unique use of effects and whammy bar remains completely different, and his techniques continue to be a huge influence on today’s guitarists. He was guitarist, songwriter and frontman Progressive Rock Powerhouse King Crimson for over 30 years. Discipline, Adrian’s first record with King Crimson, is listed among the most important rock records ever made.
Adrian has had a career that commands both awe and respect from fellow musicians and loyal fans, from his first solo record “The Lone Rhino” to The Atlantic Records hit album “Mr. Music Head” or any of his other 20 solo records that push sonic boundaries while maintaining artistic integrity. Adrian shreds on guitar but also writes beautiful songs that will make you cry. Yes, Adrian has taken his fans on a wild ride through countless world tours and albums with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Laurie, Anderson, and Paul Simon. He truly is the Twang Bar King!
