|Crimson in Stockholm 2016.|
The touring lineup, according to consequenceofsound.net, looks like this:
Robert Fripp (guitar, keyboards) and longtime associates Tony Levin (bass, Chapman Stick) and Mel Collins (saxophone) alongside singer/guitarist Jakko Jakszyk and four drummers, Bill Rieflin, Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto and Jeremy Stacey. Stacey and Rieflin will also double as keyboardists. Referring to this tour configuration as the “Double Quartet Formation,” Fripp says King Crimson is “likely to be making a lot more noise than before.”
To coincide with the tour, King Crimson is releasing an EP featuring their version of David Bowie’s “Heroes” recorded in Berlin during the band’s 2016 European tour. Fripp, of course, played on Bowie’s original track.
Fripp explains that the EP, which will be released on June 2nd, is as a celebration, a remembrancing and an homage to Bowie.
