This is the first full concert release by the current line-up of King Crimson. This Official Collectors’ Bootleg captures King Crimson on a single night in the middle of the band’s Canadian tour in November 2015. With the exception of one small edit following an announcement before the band take the stage, the running time of this concert is exactly as it was heard in the hall by those fortunate enough to have been there. Even by the high standards set by King Crimson’s current line-up, this concert was agreed by all involved to have that extra special ingredient, making it the perfect choice when seeking an official release to counter the poorly recorded bootlegs that have begun to circulate.
Personnel: Mel Collins: Saxes & Flute, Robert Fripp: Guitar & Keyboards, Gavin Harrison: Drums, Jakko Jakszyk: Guitar & Voice, Tony Levin: Basses & Stick, Pat Mastelotto: Drums, Bill Rieflin: Drums & Keyboards

This autumn, they will be releasing their long-awaited and much anticipated first major album, a comprehensive live release, taking the best performances of each song from the extensive set list (which changes nightly) and also including footage of selected performances. It will be released to coincide with the band’s 2016 European tour, which begins in the UK with two concerts at the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury on September 4th & 5th, the band’s only UK dates for 2016.
