Ranked among the greatest progressive rock bands of all time, British rockers King Crimson made their breakthrough more than five decades ago with the debut album, “In the Court of the Crimson King.” Since their return to the stage in 2014, King Crimson has sold out shows all over the world, and on June 10, the critically acclaimed band’s We Paint in Electric Rhythm Tour arrives at the Soundstage at Graceland. The performance also features special guests The Zappa Band.
King Crimson’s packed three-hour shows regularly include material from their impressive studio album catalog, including many of the songs from their groundbreaking debut album, which was described by The Who’s Pete Townshend as an “uncanny masterpiece.” The new 8-piece line-up plays many historic pieces that King Crimson have never played live, as well as new arrangements of classics. There are also new instrumentals and songs, as well as the compositions by the three drummers, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison and Jeremy Stacey, which are a regular highlight. King Crimson’s We Paint in Electric Rhythm Tour is a unique show, where eight of the best musicians in the world play without distraction or adornment.
