From AB's fb page -

here is the official announcement of the new dates for the Crimson Project tour of Australia and New zealand.

King Crimson members Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto will be joined by the classically trained Fripp acolyte Markus Reuter plus Power Trio members Julie Slick and Tobias Ralph for three hours of unsurpassed musicianship and brutal power.

The concerts will commence with sets by Stickmen and the Adrian Belew Power Trio before culminating in a performance of King Crimson material by The Crimson ProjeKCt featuring all six musicians.

Belew, Levin and Mastelotto have a large influence on popular culture due in part to their critically acclaimed work with some of the world’s most influential artists, such as Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, David Sylvian, Talking Heads, Paul Simon, John Lennon, and Nine Inch Nails.

These concerts represent the first opportunity ever for Australian and New Zealand audiences to witness the sheer majestic force of King Crimson music performed by those instrumental in its creation.

Adrian Belew: “It's a helluva show! Nearly 3 hours long: Stick Men play a set of their music (which includes a Krimson track or two), then the Power Trio plays a set of my music (which also includes a Krimson track), then Tony and Pat and I play a Krimson song (as yet another trio), and then comes the big finale: both trios play more than an hours-worth of Krimson music as a double trio!”

Adrian also has a studio project called 'Flux' where the song sounds different each time it's played. Always experimenting, is Adrian.

Thanks for the replies, I saw that show in Seattle a couple of years ago

Wonder why Adrian stopped blogging on his site?

Happy New Year All!

He posted a New Year's message on his Facebook page lamenting how he lost his job in two major bands in the same year (NIN and KC). He's also been talking about the "flux" project a lot.

It sounds like he's holed up working on the Flux project I'd suspect. Maybe something for a spring or summer release/tour, now that'd be nice eh? What? :wink:

I also caught the 2011 tour w/ The Stick Men, The Power Trio, and the final King Crimson jam by all six to close the night. I even got to meet Tony Levin after the first set. I'd definitely go to this again.

He visits Facebook quite a lot. After coming off a huge tour with his power trio nearly a year ago, he's been busy upgrading his app, FLUX. If you really want to know what he's been doing, check it out. It's a mixture of brand new music with his sort of psychedelic art work. It's very cool and well worth the $10 for the app. It's got a ton of new music and artwork.

Me too.

And better yet, if they team up with The Stick Men again(after the King Crimson tour, of course), they can do that big set of KC classics.

I saw him at Harlow's last Holiday season. Third time I'd seen him there since 2011.
