King Crimson add UK dates

King Crimson have added three more dates to their UK tour.

The latest incarnation of Robert Fripp’s outfit bring their Elements Of King Crimson show to Britain at the end of August, featuring Jakko Jakszyk, Mel Collins, Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin and Pat Mastelotto.

In addition to their previously-announced appearances they’ll play second shows in Salford, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

Crimson recently released Live At The Orpheum, recorded during their comeback US tour last year. Fripp confirmed in November that they were working on at least three new studio tracks.

Bassist Levin said in January: “I’m thrilled that King Crimson is back doing stuff, and doubly thrilled that I’m in it. It’s on the table, the possibility that we’ll come up with some new music – and maybe, eventually, a new album. That would be great.”

Tickets for the latest shows go on sale at 9am on March 20 via Live Nation and venue box offices.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
