Progressive rock legends King Crimson have announced a 17-date nine city US tour for later this year. This will be the first live appearance of the band since a few shows in 2009 and it follows guitarist/songwriter Robert Fripp’s announcement last September that the band was back and would be touring again. The full touring schedule can be seen below.

The new iteration of the band features seven members, including three drummers. The full lineup is Robert Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto, Bill Rieflin, Jakko Jakszyk, Mel Collins, and Tony Levin.

King Crimson burst into the music world with 1969′s stellar progressive rock landmark In The Court Of The Crimson King, which is widely regarded as one of the best albums of its kind. The band’s last studio album was 2003′s The Power To Believe.

    Please tell me you guys just forgot to include Adrian Belew.

      Belew is actually not a part of the new lineup, sadly.

        I know that King Crimson has been through at least two iterations, but I first got into them with songs like Sleepless, Three Of A Perfect Pair, and Dig Me and later songs like 21st Century Schzoid Man and Court Of The Crimson King (an awesome song, by the way) so that version always felt definitive for me.

          KC has been through far more than two iterations. Fripp is the only continuous member. I personally want Belew and Bruford, but I’m very excited!

      Adrian Belew’s recently been in The Crimson ProjeKCt with Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto, a Robert Fripp approved spin-off of KC. They released the Live in Tokyo CD, but unfortunately, Fripp thought Belew wasn’t suitable for the new line-up.

    Isn’t show biz all about surprises, cameos. Seriously 70 percent of most tours budget is lighting. Very probably the most powerful sound experience for me and the neighbors in Berkeley at the greek. (outdoors of course). thank you Fripp for the tasteful venues, and three drummers………
