WELCOME TO ONE OF THE WEB'S LONGEST RUNNING BLOGS

Bassist Tony Levin has been sharing his road experiences here since 1996 (which sounds fairly recent, but in the Internet world, it isn't. Even the terms weblog and blog were coined in 1997 and 1999.)

We have over 400 archived tour pages on the site (with about 6,800 photos) and we're happy to have had 4 million visits.

Sept 1, Kingston

Back rehearsing with King Crimson for the upcoming tour - but this time the whole band came to my area and we're getting ready for next week's first show near here, in Albany.

I've revived the tour diary with photos from the barn we're in.

Also coming in a week, in fact, Sept 9th, the same day the tour starts - the full release of the Levin Brothers album (CD and LP.) Just a note, if you pre-order before that, you'll get a free track download as thanks for helping us out.


August 12, Big Indian, NY

Our music camp has started here in the Catskill Mtns of New York, and it's great, as usual.

Big event today for me: the pre-release of the Levin Brothers album - something Pete and I have been writing for years.

It's a friendly kind of jazz - the kind we grew up listening to in the 50's, with short melodic songs and a lot of cool-ness (hence, the genre name, 'cool jazz'.)
Lots of info, and samples to hear, on our web page, and I'll keep the link on right to the label, for those who'd like to pre-order it.

(Oh, it'll be out in vinyl too! A limited edition signed and numbered.)


August 5, Rome

Got some cool pictures up from two days ago in northern Norway for a Stick Men show.

Coming up tonight; our last Crimson ProjeKCt tour show, in L'Aquila. It's a festival called Blues Under the Stars (which sounds much better as Blues Sotto le Stelle)

July 31, Bratislava

Back on tour, with an interesting Stick Men show in Bratislava.

Next on the tour will be Aschaffenburg, Germany.

July 27, London

I'm back rehearsing with
King Crimson at Elstree Studios for the week.
Then will head to Bratislava for a Stick Men show there.
The Summer tour of Crimson ProjeKCt is winding down, though we have a few shows remaining, mixed in with some Stick Men shows. Then it'll be time for our Three of a Perfect Pair Music Camp, in the Catskill Mountains of New York State, starting August 11th.

A busy Summer, and a fun one for me, with a lot of very cool music.

July 21, Oldenburg, Germany

Many more tour pages -- maybe best to direct you to the index of pages for the Summer Crimson ProjeKCt tour.

July 6, Nuernberg

Pictures from Amsterdam and Herleen shows

July 5, Amsterdam

Have pages up for the Crimson ProjeKCt shows in New Zealand and Australia.

Just starting the Europe leg of the tour, so more will be coming soon.


June 21, Kingston

Headed to New Zealand and the first of the Summer shows with The Crimson ProjeKCt. Show list is below - sadly, we again had the Kiev show cancelled. That's three times this year I've missed out on going there. I hope it'll happen in the future.

More soon, from Auckland.

June 15, London

More pictures from the King Crimson rehearsals here in England, and a small index of the tour pages (which will be numerous, come September!)

Headed home now, for a few days, then to New Zealand and Australia for Crimson ProjeKCt shows. After that lots of touring in Europe (more shows have been posted below), more Crimson rehearsals in July, our Three of a Perfect Pair music camp in August, and Crimson will finally hit the road in September.

Also, listed below are the first of our Stick Men October US tour dates, and the Nov/Dec Peter Gabriel dates in Europe and the UK.


June 3, England

King Crimson's US Tour dates were announced today. They're listed below.

And, though it's just rehearsal time now, here's the first page of my Crimson blog


May 29, Kingston

Great last show of the Peter Gabriel tour, in Berlin's Waldbuhne.
The tour index has all the show links.

I'm home now, briefly, before heading to England for the first full King Crimson rehearsals, which should be quite exciting.

More from there, soon.

May 19, Riga

With new pages up of recent shows in Ostrava, Vilnius and Riga, it might be easier to navigate from the index if you want to find pictures of a particular show.

Coming up on this Peter Gabriel tour, the last week of shows. We're headed to Helsinki and 3 Scandinavia shows, then Berlin and sadly we'll be finishing and moving on to other things.
