wow, difficult one, but i'm clocking in well over twenty!
we have been spoilt here in belgium, since the youth mostly play two shows when they visit. so that adds up.
first show in 93 at werchter festival, since then, i've only missed them once in belgium.
in between, i've seen the youth in holland, france and spain. add a couple of special shows (goodbye 20th century, the movie thing they did) and a few thurston shows (ATP england and brussels) and a lee show and that's it.

they never disappoint (as a friend of mine, with a big smile on his face, said yesterday)

I think I'm at 16 times with McCarren coming up. No international shows though.

May I butt in ? This is my contribution given on another message board, amended slightly for here...

I'm including my brief description of the 1st show, and I attended both, but I'm also including a link so you Crimson fans can read what you like about both shows. I know there are several of you here. The Nashville shows were the 'warmups' and I attend each incarnation of the KC band that performs these. Unfuricken REAL !!! KC is the very best !!!!!! This makes my 9th time seeing them, first time on June 6, 1974.


 



My post here is about pg. 5 of the forums on this link....Please read the reviews offered here if you're a fan.

miracle ticket !
:: Posted by kc6674 on August 03, 2008


Great things come to those who have no expectations. I was hanging out at the front of the Belcourt last night when I heard someone say, "Give it to the guy on the bicycle". I was astonished when a gentleman gave me a ticket to the sold-out show. I had a ticket already for tonight’s performance, but missed out on purchasing for the first night. I didn’t even have to hold my finger up in the ’hoping for a miracle posture !!!’. So to whoever it was with such generosity..THANK YOU MUCHLY !!!

The show was fantastic. Adrian is such a great frontman. He engaged with the audience a bit less than I thought he might, having attended other ’warmup’ gigs here in Nashville. At one point he made a (sorta) ’Zappa’ reference.He mentioned while putting on his beige moccasins,(paraphrasing) "You can’t play rock and roll with brown shoes". I wanted to yell out "Brown Shoes Don’t Make It !", but contained myself. I got a good laugh anyway. Even Robert had been more talkative and animated in past initiating shows. I sat in the 10th row center and the sound was excellent. My view of Robert was mostly obstructed as he was behind his rack, as pointed out, but I could still see his fretwork and occasional glimpses of his face. Tony played like he never missed a beat or had been out of the lineup for 10 years, and Pat and newcomer Gavin Harrison were MONSTERS on their drums. What a sonic blast from all of them !!

The biggest surprise for me was them playing The Talking Drum/Lark’s Tongues Pt. 2. It took me back to my first KC show in Ft. Worth, Texas in June of 1974. They did an exciting rendition. I have to admit, my favorite more recent tune was also played, Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream. The setlist was much of Discipline (Elephant Talk, Frame by Frame, Thela Hun Gingeet, and Indiscipline), Thrak/Vrooom (One Time, Vrooom and SSEDD). The Construction of Light started the show, after a percussive intro of which there were 2 or 3 drumming duets interspersed in the set. The rearragements of many of the tunes was a fresh offering since there really wasn’t any new material played. Gavin added the new element with much gusto and technical precision.

Wow, I just can’t wait till tonight for Belcourt warmup Part 2. I’m still buzzing from the show last night and maybe someone will give a more critiqued post of the tunes themselves.

take care, and thank you Robert and KC for coming back together again and doing these ridiculously inexpensive shows for us ’hometown’ folks at a great, intimate venue !!

I'd really love to see King Crimson, but $60 is just way too out of my price range for a set that's going to compromised of mostly new material (which I do like, but yeah, not for $60.) $25-$35 would be more reasonable.

As for SY, I've only seen them once this past July 4th. I might be seeing them at McCarren, but I'm not sure about that one yet. Hopefully I'll get to see them forty more times.

They played NO new material. They had a new drummer from Porcupine Tree that added new zest to the newfangled arrangements of established tunes. And if you look closely, you'll see the tix prices for their 'warmups' were only $25 !! PRIMO !!

And since I was lucky with a freebie for the first night, I saw two shows for $13.25, added fees included....
