(CelebrityAccess) – Prog-rock legends King Crimson have announced that they will be hitting the road on a 50-date world tour in honor of their 50th anniversary later this year.
The tour, which will see the band making their way across three continents, will be accompanied by a massive list of special releases including: a new documentary titled Cosmic F*Kc, a limited-edition expanded box set of the band’s seminal debut LP, 1969’s In the Court of the Crimson King; a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray box set, Heaven and Earth, covering the period from the late 1990s to 2008; an expanded and revised reissue of Sid Smith’s long out-of-print biography In the Court of King Crimson; a vinyl box set spanning albums from 1972 to 1974; the final three installments of their “Collectors Club” series; silk screen prints and new merchandise.
Each week for 50 weeks, the band will also digitally issue a “new, rare or alternate take from across the KC catalog” featuring a spoken word introduction from band manager/producer David Singleton.
The first track, a radio edit of 1969’s “21st Century Schizoid Man,” is available to stream now.
