King Crimson, the pioneering progressive-rock band whose famous fans have included everyone from Kanye West and Tool to the late Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, has announced its Radical Action Tour with a stop at Humphreys on June 19 (the band’s first San Diego appearance in 16 years). King Crimson features the group’s leader and conceptual mastermind, guitar innovator Robert Fripp, alongside original Crimson member Mel Collins on saxophones and flute. The lineup is completed by bassist and Chapman Stick wizard Tony Levin, singer-guitarist Jakko Jakszyk and drummers Pat Mastelotto, Bill Rieflin, Gavin Harrison and Jeremy Stacey. King Crimson was formed in London in 1968 and soon drew praise from Hendrix. He declared them “the best band in the world,“ a tribute to the group’s virtuosity and mind-bending fusion of rock, jazz and classical and avant-garde music. King Crimson’s original lineup featured singer-bassist Greg Lake, who went on to co-found Emerson, Lake & Palmer and died in December at the age of 69. Lake was the vocalist on “21st Century Schizoid Man,” a standout song from King Crimson’s landmark 1969 debut album, “In the Court of the Crimson King.” Decades later, “Schizoid Man” was prominently sampled on West’s song, “Power.” Crimson leader Fripp played a key role on David Bowie’s “Heroes” album and also worked with Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel, Blondie, The Roches and Brian Eno. In 2012, after leading and disbanding numerous iterations of King Crimson, Fripp announced his retirement from music. Happily for fans, changed his mind the following year. Please note that for this performance, premium room packages include seating in rows 3 through 6, center section.
