Crimson Projekct Share 2014 Tour Dates

Crimson Projekct

Earlier this year, Robert Fripp announced a mind-boggling (and probably deafening) triple-drummer version of his singular prog-rock outfit, King Crimson. And though that news is incredibly exciting — especially since Fripp had recently hinted to a “retirement” from the music industry — Crimson diehards (myself included) ended up with a case of Belew balls since former frontman Adrian Belew wasn’t included in the lineup. (Yes, I immediately regret that joke).

But there’s a silver-lining: Belew will be hitting the road next year with the Crimson Projekct, an excellent off-shoot featuring Crimson alum Tony Levin (bass) and Pat Mastelotto (drums). The sextet recently announced new European tour dates on their website, along with a statement explaining the differences between the two Crimtastic groups.

“Following the recent announcements that a new configuration of King Crimson will tour North America in the fall of 2014, we in the Crimson ProjeKCt felt that it would be helpful to clarify our status and plans, in order to avoid any potential confusion between the two bands,” the statement reads. “We’ve never hidden the fact that we are an entirely separate entity to King Crimson, albeit a closely related one. We’re all delighted that Robert Fripp is once again in ‘go mode’ and look forward to what will be a bumper year for Crimson fans. We hope that audiences will enjoy all the upcoming tours. We certainly will!”

  1. Typo: ‘Borderij’ should be ‘Boerderij’
    And I will be there. Terribly exited.

    While you are keeping your fingers crossed for some North American dates of the ProjeKCt, I’m crossing mine for a KC European tour. There can never be enough King Crimson.

  2. So… how can we convince you to come to Newtown, CT in 2014 and play in our beautiful theater in historic Edmond Town Hall?

    Thanks !!!
