The outing is set to kick off on September 9 with a two-night run in Albany, NY before the group makes a few more stops in the Northeast, Midwest and West Coast.

How long has it been since Belew has played with em? Is it pretty common knowledge that he wouldn’t be on this tour?

Belew stated on his Facebook page that Fripp told him he would not be right for what Fripp had in mind for this version of King Crimson.

Belew did gigs with them during the last run in 2009, but it was Fripp already announced last September that he wouldn’t be right for the new incarnation of the band – whatever that means. And jambands, his name is Jakko Jakszyk – you’re missing a “k” at the end. Odd, it’s not like you guy shave a reputation for constantly bad editing or anything.

Why does Jambands use art from In The Court Of The Crimson King? Fripp won’t touch that record with a ten foot pole on this tour.

This is yet another radical new lineup with several brand new member, some very old members, and new material. It is the antithesis of a “reunion”.

It does seem odd that this is being dubbed a reunion tour. I saw them in 2009 and they played old stuff, pre-Belew era, with Belew on stage. This feels more like another ProjeKct for Fripp.

Belews version was more new wavy i feel, like elephant talk n shit, i want that hard psychedelica like those early crimson tunes

Hey AK, for someone critical of another’s editing, grammar, or whatever, check your own— “guy (s) shave?” A little click of the space bar helps.

This lineup will be focusing on the first four albums’ material. The Adrian Belew era will not be represented at all. Although Bob has alluded to writing new material with Ade after this tour is over, as they will not be doing any studio work with the septet.
