As the world opens up again, progressive rock titans King Crimson are hitting the stage.

The Robert Fripp-led band — which in its current lineup includes bassist Tony Levin, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Jakko Jakszyk, multi-instrumentalist Mel Collins, and drummers Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harris, and Jeremy Stacey — announced a new schedule of tour dates today, which brings it to Philadelphia on the tail end of its run to play The Mann Center for the Performing Arts with The Zappa Band on September 7th.

An announcement from the venue says that the Music Is Our Friend tour will draw on the breadth and depth of the band’s 13-album catalog — their most recent studio album was 2003’s The Power To Believe — and features “many historic pieces which Crimson have never played live, as well as new arrangements of Crimson classics.”

Concert announcements at this point are subject to change due to the unpredictability of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The Mann Center’s website has an extensive COVID-19 section detailing health and safety regulations, information around rescheduled shows, and more.

“The Mann Center for the Performing Arts has taken enhanced measures to protect the health and safety of our guests,” the website reads. “There remains, however, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. By entering our venue, you voluntarily assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of exposure to COVID-19.”

Tickets go on sale Thursday, June 10th, at 10 a.m., more information can be found here. Check out the band’s full tour schedule below, and for the latest in Philly concert news, consult the XPN Concert Calendar.
