Boston, MA (January 18, 2019) – The Boch Center and Live Nation announced today that King Crimson will stop at the Boch Center Wang Theatre on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 7:30PM to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 25 at 10:00AM.
As part of a series of events and releases for their 50th anniversary, King Crimson’s 2019 tour will include special concerts across three continents, including both festivals and headline shows. Since the band’s return to live performance in 2014, with critically acclaimed sell-out shows all over the world, the audience has been reinvented, as much as the band itself.
The band’s packed three-hour shows regularly include material from twelve of their thirteen studio albums, including many of the songs from their seminal 1969 album In The Court of the Crimson King, described by Pete Townshend (The Who) as an “uncanny masterpiece.” The new 8-piece line-up plays many historic pieces which Crimson have never played live, as well as new arrangements of Crimson 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. A unique show, where eight of the best musicians in the world play music without distraction or adornment.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, January 25 at 10:00AM and will be available at the Boch Center Box Office, www.bochcenter.org, by calling (800) 982-ARTS (2787) and via Ticketmaster.
