The progressive rock band King Crimson, along with special guest The California Guitar Trio, will perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, Saturday, July 24, 2021.
Formed in 1968 in London, England, King Crimson has drawn inspiration from a variety of music over the years, keeping their work fresh by incorporating elements of classical music, jazz, folk, heavy metal, gamelan, industrial and experimental sounds.
The band’s shows regularly include material from 12 of their 13 studio albums, including many songs from their seminal 1969 album “In the Court of the Crimson King,” described by Pete Townshend as an “uncanny masterpiece.”
The seven-piece line-up play many historic pieces, which Crimson has never previously played live, as well as new arrangements of Crimson classics – “the music is new whenever it was written.” There are also new instrumentals and songs, as well as compositions by the three drummers, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison and Jeremy Stacey, which are a regular highlight. King Crimson offers a unique show, where seven of the best musicians in the world play music without distraction or adornment.
