The “We Paint Electric Rhythm Colour” Tour

King Crimson is set to play across North America with The Zappa Band supporting them for most of the 25 dates. It kicks off on June 4 at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida and wraps up on July 12 at the Casino in Rama, Ontario. The lineup includes Robert Fripp, Mel Collins, Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison, Jakko Jakszyk and Jeremy Stacey.

King Crimson bassist Tony Levin said in a statement: “The summer tour will be a throwback one for us in a few ways; great to be going back to outdoor venues, some of them the ‘sheds’ we played in the 80s– and we’ll be travelling by tour bus, old school! As for what pieces we’ll play, that hasn’t been decided yet, but will likely be a wide selection from the 50 years of Crimson repertoire. With seven players on stage, we can cover it all.”

Dubbed as “the ultimate Zappa alumni band in partnership the Zappa Trust”, The Zappa Band features Ray White, Mike Keneally, Scott Thunes and Robert Martin. Joining them are Jamie Kime and Joe Travers.
