    This year marks King Crimson’s 50th anniversary, and the legendary prog-rock outfit intends to celebrate by embarking on a 50-date world tour.

    Today, they’ve unveiled dates for a North American leg set to begin in late August. The itinerary includes shows in the US, Canada, and Mexico. Get your tickets here.

    Additionally, King Crimson will tour Europe and South America in the coming months. See the full schedule below.


    King Crimson’s touring lineup consists of guitarist Robert Fripp 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 also double as keyboardists.

    In addition to the tour, King Crimson plan to mark their 50th anniversary with reissues of their back catalog, a new documentary, commemorative merchandise, and even a new edition of Sid Smith’s out-of-print biography on the band. You can get more details here.
