King Crimson’s 2017-2018 lineup

A revitalized King Crimson has announced their 2018 “Uncertain Times” European tour. The ensemble will visit Poland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands, Italy, France and U.K.

Pre-sale VIP tickets are on sale now from the band’s website, where fans can also find recordings and photographs of recent shows. General tickets went on sale Dec. 1 and will also be available at StubHub.

With three drummers, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison and Jeremy Stacey, as well as the return of multi-instrumentalist Bill Rieflin on keyboards, guitarist and original founding member Robert Fripp has said that this “double quartet formation” is likely to make more noise than ever before. Rounding out the eight-piece line-up are guitarist and vocalist Jakko Jakszyk, long-time bassist Tony Levin, and saxophonist and flautist Mel Collins, who was a mainstay of the group from 1970-1972.

The group has done two North American tours in 2017: June 11 – July 19 and Oct. 18 – Nov. 26.

The band’s three-hour shows draw on material from all periods of their history, including six historic tracks that Crimson have never played live before, as well as new arrangements of Crimson classics and a healthy dose of new material, including the compositions for three drummers, which have become a highlight.
