King Crimson Adds More Dates to First North American Tour in Three Years


King Crimson has expanded a forthcoming North American tour that will feature the debut of their new double-quartet line up.

Multi-show stands in Seattle, Mexico City, Red Bank, N.J., and Oakland are now part of an already-confirmed string of stops in the Radical Action Tour. This is their first North American tour in three years. A complete list of dates, cities and venues is below.

King Crimson are also putting out a new EP featuring a cover of David Bowie‘s “Heroes” to coincide with the tour. Founder Robert Fripp played on the original recording; Crimson’s live update is from a 2016 stop at the Admiralspalast in Berlin. It’s due on June 2.

Fripp will be joined next month by bassist Tony Levin, saxophonist Mel Collins, singer/guitarist Jakko Jakszyk and a group of four drummers that includes Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto, Bill Rieflin and Jeremy Stacey.

Collins was originally with Crimson from 1970-73, while Levin joined in 1981. Mastelotto was a 1994 addition; Harrison has worked with Fripp since 2007. Both Jakszyk and Rieflin joined in 2013, when Fripp jump started King Crimson again after a hiatus. The 2016 addition of Stacey completed the band’s new eight-member look.
