King Crimson 2018 Uncertain Times Tour Part 1

Vienna Show2

Second show in Vienna, so we’re pretty set on what to do.

Though there are always things to improve.

When it’s the last show in a theater, some advance packing helps with the load out. So, Jason can usually be found in the dressing room, dismantling the practice instruments.

Our setlist for tonight

And pre-show fists

Now at intermission, As usual, a lot of attention is paid to the setlist

In the first set, I hadn’t paid enough attention to a setlist change discussed backstage, and found that there’s a big difference between playing Radical Part2 with the rest of the band, and steaming in instead with Radical Part2!

A low E is, well, sort of close to a low C… or anyway, you could get further away. But then, without my notes in front of me (or with the notes of the wrong piece) I can’t say I actually played the piece… more like I flirted with it.

I believe my words, coming offstage, were, “I forgive all seven of you for playing the wrong song.”

Here we go for set two

A very enjoyable stay here in Vienna, and the shows are all exciting for us (hopefully for the audiences too.)

Off to Prague tomorrow. More soon.
