Adrian Belew Power Trio
King Crimson players Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto keep very busy individually when Crimson's not active, but now, a historic joint tour: Adrian Belew Power Trio will headline the bill, with Stick Men (featuring Tony and Pat) opening.

And of course, how could they resist joining together for a Crim-centric extended encore - after their respective sets we'll see them reconfigure as Ade/Tony/Pat trio, morphing into the double trio lineup like King Crimson featured in the 90's.
The tour name, 2 of a Perfect Trio, harkens to the King Crimson song "3 of a Perfect Pair"

Adrian Belew's trio features the amazing bassist Julie Slick, and NYC drummer Tobias Ralph - perfect complements to Belew's extraordinary guitar playing and singing.

Stick Men presents Tony Levin's virtuosic playing on the Chapman Stick, with Pat Mastelotto giving his unique progressive drumming on both acoustic and electronic drums. Markus Reuter rounds out the band, playing his self-designed touch style guitar.

Adrian Belew's resume reads like a who's who of innovative rock music: Zappa, Bowie, Talking Heads, Graceland, Downward Spiral, add in a 30-year stint as frontman/writer/guitarist/singer for King Crimson, 5 records with the avante-garde pop band the bears, and 20 critically acclaimed solo records and, well, you get the picture.

Tony Levin, perhaps best known as long time bassist with Peter Gabriel, has played with many rock artists, including John Lennon and Pink Floyd. He's had 6 solo releases, as well as 3 Stick Men CD's. His website, tonylevin.com, has one of the longest running musician blogs on the web.

Pat Mastelotto, perhaps best known for pop hits with his 80's band Mr Mister and others like the Rembrandts, XTC, Jude Cole, Michael Penn, etc. After a 1993 world tour with David Sylvian and Robert Fripp, Fripp invited Mastelotto into King Crimson in 1994, where he has remained - contributing to dozens KC releases , two official DVDs and countless live shows.
