King Crimson players Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto keep very busy individually when Crimson’s not active, but now, a historic joint tour: Adrian Belew Power Trio will headline the bill, with Stick Men (featuring Tony and Pat) opening.

And of course, how could they resist joining together for a Crim-centric extended encore – after their respective sets we’ll see them reconfigure as Ade/Tony/Pat trio, morphing into the double trio lineup like King Crimson featured in the 90’s. The tour name, 2 of a Perfect Trio, harkens to the King Crimson song “3 of a Perfect Pair”.

Adrian Belew’s trio features the amazing bassist Julie Slick, and NYC drummer Tobias Ralph – perfect complements to Belew’s extraordinary guitar playing and singing.

Stick Men presents Tony Levin’s virtuosic playing on the Chapman Stick, with Pat Mastelotto giving his unique progressive drumming on both acoustic and electronic drums. Markus Reuter rounds out the band, playing his self-designed touch style guitar.

    I would love to win this as an anniversary gift to my boyfriend. He would be beyond ecstatic to be able to go to this! :)

    The last time I was able to see any of these people was way back in 1981 during a KC tour that stopped in a tiny club in New Haven, CT. I have held my breath in anticipation of seeing ANY of them again since then. I have always loved the Belew incarnation of KC and Tony Levin has been a favorite of mine through his PG, KC, ABWH and solo efforts. I would LOVE to see them again…especially since my now 26 yr old son is JUST as excited as I am…as well as it would be a terrific birthday gift (he turns 27 on Sunday). Adrian and Tony and Me (and Caleb).

    The music of King Crimson has been a huge influence on the sound of my favorite band Umphrey’s McGee! I’ve never had the opportunity to see them (or any of their side projects), and would LOVE to see original Prog Rock masters!!

    The last time I went to a basement jam with some musician friends, there were King Crimson videos playing on the big screen, and they were playing the same tunes…instrumental karaoke…but way better. That was about 10 years ago, and I still remember how my head was buzzing from the powerful chords, live synergistic energy and visual intensity. I would love to see and hear the real meal deal in person at the Aladdin. KC has unforgettable presence and extends a unique kind of dynamic musical empowerment.

    Simply, because I love King Crimson.

    While King Crimson may never have had huge notoriety on the radio, they remain one of the most influential bands to have ever existed. Their progressive, genre-crossing style goes unparalleled. It would be an honor to be able to experience this at tomorrow nights show.

    AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Saw King Crimson in New York during the last tour they ever took. Last show. My birthday. $80 ticket as a present to myself. WAS THE BEST SHOW OF MY LIFE (I’ve seen Clapton, Page and Plant, Dream Theater, and loads of others). Even one guy from the band is sure to put on a killer show. Oh man I think I just came.

    Would love to go!

    We saw King Crimson a few years ago as they kicked off their last tour in Asheville, NC. Amazing experience. My husband is a HUGE fan.

    Thanks for this opportunity to see three great musicians. I have see each in different incarnations and it is always a musical treat.

    For a behind the times instrumentalist and musical head of mystery, I am sure this would put a smile on the face of my concertina playing, organologist boyfriend. He’s a great big fan! What a fun evening!

    Got a taste when he opened for Tool – would love to get the whole meal.
