King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and wife Toyah Willcox have announced dates for their Christmas Party, promising "an evening of classic rock in the company of two rock legends and their band."

The pair will play Edinburgh, Sunderland, Bath, London and Wolverhampton on the five date tour in December, where fans can expect them to perform Toyah hits It’s A Mystery and I Want To Be Free, plus many much-loved gems from their Sunday Lunch repertoire such as Heroes, Rebel Yell, Welcome To The Jungle, Are You Gonna Go My Way, Paranoid and more.

"It is inevitable that our kitchen high jinx hits the road, because, as Sunday Lunch has proven, the whole world loves classic rock and wants to let their hair down at Christmas," enthuses Toyah. "Who better to do that with than two rock legends, who can really rock out and make you laugh at the same time!"

Fripp is currently on the road in California on the spoken word Englishmen Abroad tour with King Crimson manager David Singleton.

"Of the three evenings of Englishman Abroad so far, all have been very different and I have enjoyed each of them," reports Fripp. "Burning Questions: there has been one question with sufficient heat for fire IMO.

"Much of the KC / RF commentary on social media strikes me as unconsidered, rather than uninformed; and much opinion Received Opinion, rather than a result of pondering. I engage with goodwill with those whose interest goes beyond the music, which mostly speaks for itself (there are exceptions)."
