    Take binoculars and an oxygen tank. I "won" some nosebleed seats for Fleetwood Mac and spent the whole show with extreme vertigo.

    If it was near me, oh HELL yea! Fripp has always been an idol to me, and Levin, one of the BEST bassist/stick players on the planet.

    It's in a 2000 seats theatre, not a stadium or something that big.

    A show like that would be a thing of beauty! These are amazing and mind blowing musicians. And yes... Tony Levin... :cheers:

    I saw them with Ten Years After and The Strawbs in the mid '70s. Love them.

    I'm thinking about it ... probably in.

    One of my favorite bands although it took me 40+ years to appreciate Larks Tongue in Aspic beyond Easy Money / Book of Saturday / Exiles.

    I am no where near smart enough to understand some of Fripps stuff.

    Grew up in Ann Arbor on Court of the Crimson King aren't we all 20th Century Schizoid Men ( and women )?

    Plus just dancing like puppets?

    Robert Fripp's guitars are all either made or looked after by Ben Crowe of Crimson Guitars. He has a fantastic web site too
