Guitar Legend Adrian Belew Announces Massive North America Tour


Sign in to view read count
Asheville, NC – Adrian Belew is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist, who has released 20 critically acclaimed solo albums. He has worked alongside some of the most innovative artists of the past 30 years, including Paul Simon, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Frank Zappa, Laurie Anderson and Nine Inch Nails. For 33 years he was the frontman, singer, and guitarist in art-rock giant King Crimson. Known as a highly inventive guitarist, much of Belew's music mixes pop songwriting with complex time signatures, witty lyrics, wild sounds, and technical mastery of his instrument.

Adrian is happy to announce his first North American tour since the Crimson ProjeKCt tour of 2011. The tour runs from Oct 22 to Dec 21, coast to coast in the USA and hitting three Canadian Provinces.

The Adrian Belew Power Trio includes bassist Julie Slick and drummer Tobias Ralph, both virtuoso musicians, with a setlist celebrating Adrian’s massive body of work. Belew first appeared on the guitar-world radar when he toured with Frank Zappa who later said, “Adrian reinvented electric guitar”. Adrian’s signature tones, and his unique use of effects and whammy bar remain unique, and his techniques continue to be a huge influence on today’s guitarists.

Adrian has had a career that commands both awe and respect from fellow musicians and loyal fans. From his first solo record “The Lone Rhino” to his current endeavors, his work pushes sonic boundaries while maintaining artistic integrity. His upcoming projects include his groundbreaking music app “Flux: Music that is never the same twice” and his effects suite for iPad “FLUX:fx”. The focus over the next few months however is to get out and burn onstage, city by city!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
