King Crimson evolves, changes, morphs as relentlessly as the Soundscapes which open each concert. Since the 2016 tour of Europe, the band has become a double quartet line-up with Bill Rieflin’s return from sabbatical as keyboard player & Jeremy Stacey’s confirmation as a permanent member/third drummer. This allows for the inclusion of an ever more complex & compelling array of material, far more than can be contained in a single concert. With options for up to three keyboard players in the current line-up – Fripp & Stacey both have setups alongside their respective guitar/drum rigs - the majority of Lizard is performed live for the first time ever, likewise Fallen Angel from Red is making its first ever concert appearance/live recording, Cirkus envelops the listener in sound, the beautiful title track from Islands closes the first set, while staples from the 1980s line-up Indiscipline and Neurotica appear in very different arrangements.

3 X CD SET FEATURING RADIO AND TELEVISION BROADCASTS 1974 1980 Having formed in 1968, it was not until 1974 that the band proper with Neal Peart joining Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson to create the line-up that has remained in place ever since came to be. And just two weeks after Peart joined the group, Rush began their first US tour. On 26th August 74 the group played at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland , Ohio, a show recorded and broadcast by WMMS radio, which made it Rush s very first radio broadcast. It is this now legendary gig which forms the first disc of this set, alongside some bonus tracks which were recorded at the same venue a year later. The second disc here is home to an FM broadcast recorded at Holland s Pinkpop Festival in June 1979. Perfomed while the group were promoting their 1978 album Hemispheres, this rarely heard recording is included here on CD for the first time. The final disc in this collection featured the classic 1980 broadcast from the group, recorded at the Kiel Auditorium in St Louis, Missouri, on 13th February as part of their Permanent Waves Tour, and this recording remains arguably one of Rush s very finest live performances.
