  THE CRIMSON PROJEKCT TO PERFORM AT SHEPHERDS BUSH EMPIRE IN LONDON ON 12TH MARCH 2014
10 March 2014



tcp

Robert Fripp approved King Crimson's offshoot The Crimson ProjeKCt will perform an exclusive one-off UK show at London's Shepherds Bush Empire on 12th March. The set list for the evening will include material from the early 80s through the mid 1990s, with some classics from the early 70s.

The Crimson ProjeKCt features 3 members from the current incarnation of King Crimson and has a 'double trio' line up as KC did between 1994 and 1997. Adrian Belew, who also worked as a session and touring musician with Talking Heads, David Bowie, Frank Zappa and Nine Inch Nails among others; and Tony Levin, also famous for his extensive work with Peter Gabriel, joined King Crimson in 1981, giving birth to the 4th incarnation of the band, alongside Fripp and Bill Bruford.

Pat Mastelotto (Mr Mister) joined in 1994, starting the double-trio phase with Trey Gunn. They last played together as King Crimson on a "retrospective" US tour in 2008, but haven't played in Europe since 2003.

In 2006, Adrian Belew formed The Adrian Belew Power Trio, a long term live project featuring Julie Slick on bass and Tobias Ralph (Joe Bowie's Defunkt, Screaming Headless Torsos, Nena) on drums; in 2009, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto formed the trio Stick Men with acclaimed composer Markus Reuter on touch guitar.

In August 2011 Belew, Levin and Mastelotto organized the "3 of a Perfect Pair Camp", a seminar where the two trios joined forces to perform King Crimson repertoire, followed by the "Two of a Perfect Trio" tour. In 2012, they supported Dream Theater under the name The Crimson ProjeKCt, with Markus covering Robert Fripps' parts.

"Tony and myself discussed the not-easily-doable name of Stick Men & The Adrian Belew Power Trio That Do A Set Of King Crimson Music. Tony's suggestion was ProjeKct Krimson. Mine was The Crimson ProjeKCt", says Robert Fripp.

The Crimson ProjeKCt has toured the United States twice and performed in both Russia and Japan; they're set to hit European stages for the first time in 2014. A unique opportunity for any European King Crimson fan after 10 years of live abstinence: book your tickets now to avoid disappointment.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
