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 amongst 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.
"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.
