King Crimson Tickets
King Crimson TicketsWhen looking at the history of rock and roll, the British prog rock band known as King Crimson played a major role in shaping the sound and evolution of the 1970s rock and roll and modern music scene. Formed in 1968 in London, King Crimson has undergone many lineup changes over the decades, expanding to include more global representation. The one constant throughout it all is Robert Fripp, who remains the head and heart of the band today. The genesis of King Crimson was Fripp's less-than-successful trio Giles, Giles and Fripp, who performed psychedelic pop. King Crimson's debut album, In the Court of the Crimson King, infused hints of experimental, classical and jazz music into its rock sound and set the stage for King Crimson to reshape rock and roll. During the course of more than four decades in existence, albeit on and off and in varying configurations, King Crimson has recorded 13 studio albums, 13 compilation albums, 15 live albums, three EPs, and six video albums as well as released eight box sets.
Reluctant KingsWhile the band has undoubtedly influenced the development of progressive rock and psychedelic rock, King Crimson shies away from the classifications. Despite this reluctance to define its sound, King Crimson influenced even more than those two rock subgenres. The band also influenced hardcore, alternative metal, experimental rock and noise rock as well. VH1 ranked King Crimson as No. 87 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.
