    Yep I've been seeing this setlist too, looks absolutely amazing. My fiancé and I have killer seats to this show, very excited (plus I haven't seen Gavin Harrison since the Porcupine Tree days and he's amazing).

    I would love to hear Cat Food! The only live version I know is the one on the Great Deceiver box set. It's a fun tune.

    I would be pissed if I went and they didn’t play 21st Century Schizoid man.

    Fripp would say: probably not the show for you.

    For years they didn't play it *at all*. They're playing it a lot more lately.

    I've seen KC maybe 5 times and I've only heard it once.

    I understand them not playing it on a regular tour but they are calling this a 50th Anniversary tour.

    Glad to see that they are mixing in some of the 80's material as well.

    It was only played on one tour between 1974 and 2014, and that was in 1996.

    Since the current formation got together in 2014, Fripp has been much more nostalgic in his setlist choices. I'm only assuming this is due to the lack of Adrian Belew. Crimson with and Crimson without him are two completely different bands.

    New additions

    June 16: Frame By Frame (first time live since 2008)
    June 18: Hell Hounds of Krim, Suitable Grounds For The Blues, Devil Dogs of Tessellation Row

    I want to hear THRAK live. On record, it's an absolute bulldozer.

    I had read or thought Fripp really retired (like Bill Bruford has). Glad for the fans.
    Agree, w vs w/out Belew are completely different styles, both good.

    He did, after the 2008 tour. Swore he'd never tour again due to being sick of dealing with the music industry.

    6 years later, he gave it a go again & I'm ever thankful he did. The current incarnation of KC is probably the tightest one they've ever had.
