Subject: Robert Fripp Opening For Porcupine Tree.
Date Posted: April 19 2005 at 11:05
Just thought I'd let you know that Robert Fripp is apparently opening for Porcupine Tree for three of the US dates. This news courtesy of http://www.porcupinetree.com/news.cfm - The Porcupine Tree website   and http://www.elephant-talk.com/ - Elephant Talk (the King Crimson fan site).

The dates are as follows:


June 9 San Francisco - Fillmore
June 10 Los Angeles The Wilshire Theater
June 11 Anaheim -- The Grove of Anaheim

You took the words right out of my mouth Gentle Ronnie. 

Still, given Fripp's unpredictability, I guess this is right on form.

Well, Crimson supported Tool, I suppose this is in the same ballpark. Maybe Steve Wilson and Fripp have or are working with one another on some project.

Anybody know?

Unfortunately, yes, Crimson *did* support Tool.  

It took a little of the edge off when Maynard said they should be the ones supporting Crimson, but...

IF THEY FELT THAT WAY, WHY DIDN'T THEY JUST DO IT!?

OK, Steve Wilson is a damned good guitarist, but to try to follow Robert Fripp??

The tune "Burning Sky" is not average. PT is capable of tectonic rock. Don't miss out!

Fripp will only be playing soundscapes, so don't expect a RED or LTIA part II crashing into your ears. That said, soundscapes are MAGNIFICENT! especially live!! The only thing to worry about (I'm talking to Fripp now!) is that there is a big chance Fripp will be booed at! Fripp opened with a soundscape set for the last G3 tour (with Steve Vai and Joe Satriani) and EVERY night he was yelled at...Fripp must have an elephant skin!

He is my favorite prog guitarist.

because KC cant draw a crowd like Tool can. As for PT being called average, have you even heard 99% of music? just because some of the big prog bands of the 70's are better doesnt make them average.

I wouldn't say 'average', but I'll wager almost any amount of money on King Crimson being much more recognized (here in the US, especially) than PT.

That said, it IS solo Fripp rather than King Crimson. He probably feels he has more freedom to do whatever he likes when he's not the headliner.

I just wish I hadn't heard that KC opened for Tool...I have nothing against Tool, it just doesn't seem fair somehow.

I would kill to see Fripp & PT - why can't they do it here ?

Fripp & Sylvian a few years ago at the Albert Hall was awesome ( why can't we have a spell check on forums ?). Crimson are to die for, brutal, technical, innovative, perfect.

For those who have asked if they've worked together, Fripp has appeared with Wilson's ambient project Bass Communion.

why not at the NYC show

Greetings all (as my first official post) and hopefully I can contribute some wonderous materials to this realm of music.

Anyway, hightea, I shall be at that PT show; and, much to my chagrin, am saddened by Robert Fripp's in absentia hehe BUT, according to a recent diary entry there was something he said about him coming to NYC to do another solo soundscape performance.

Should be promising...if the old "venal toad" comes through...we all know his performance woes.

This is a forum. We all express opinions here. If I was a mod on this forum, I'd take you to the side and teach you not to use killer phrases like 'this is bad music' and 'that is good music'. Being a long time member and collaborator for the site doesn't make you an institution that utters incontrovertible facts from time to time.

PS: I would have written this just as well if I didn't like Procupine Tree

PPS: Em.... am I missing the point? Was your post meant as irony? Forgive me. English is not my mother tongue.

Joren doesnt know what he's saying half the time.He posts as if his keyboard is floating upside down in the clouds surrounding Jupiter,where he is riding a large bottle of Absinthe propelled by the biggest spliff you've ever seen.

You may also add No-Man's Flowermouth, which is a very decent album. Regarding Bass Communion, Drugged (the second one) is a awesome piece of music. It is actually Fripp's solo sampled and looped by Wilson. It's so beautiful.

What concerns PT, I love some of their albums. However, the last one was a sort of disappointment for me. Not that the album is bad, but I did not find any new ideas there.

Hardly ever post anywhere, but I had to this time. Mr.
Fripp has already stated that Tool has been his strongest current
musical influence. He has also, of his own volition, collaborated with
PT. Mr. Fripp does only what he wants to do. Who he works with is
a representation of whose music he admires. He has stated that his
tour with Tool was his second most enjoyable tour in his career. He
has stated his enjoyment of PT music. These are not my opinions,
they are his. I respect his opinions, as I respect his music, quite
exceedingly. To slight Tool or PT and the manner in which he has
chosen to perform with them is to slight his opinion. PT and Tool
have put some of the best music out there. Mr. Fripp obviously
agrees.

Well, I don't like Porcupine Tree. I'm quite happy for Robert Fripp to, amazing musician as he is, but I'm equally happy to let everyone know I don't like them myself .

When did Fripp say Tool was his biggest musical influence?  I could've sworn Tool said Crimson was *their* biggest musical influence.

I don't mean to brag or anything, but I thought you'd like to know that I have tickets to the PT/Fripp show in S.F.

Just an FYI.

As you were...smoke 'em if you got 'em.

It was an interview that Fripp was giving and he was
commenting on Tool listing Crimson as their biggest influence, and
giving them the same kudos back. He also mentioned that the Tool
tour he was on was the second best tour in terms of enjoyment that
he had been on in his career. I don't know if I can find the interview
again but if I can I'll provide the address.
