Having successfully toured the USA with 20 people in 2021 at the height of the Covid pandemic, it is somewhat ironic that the very moment that the US president Joe Biden declares the pandemic to be at an end, Robert Fripp contracts Covid. We have cancelled the shows in Syracuse and Ridgefield, and are hopeful that he may be recovered in time for the show in Boston 22nd Sep.
As the Syracuse show was cancelled at very short notice, we did suggest to the promoter that they should, of course, refund the tickets, but also proposed that, as some fans would inevitably turn up unawares, David Singleton would do a solo show for free. A unique opportunity, reminiscent of the time that King Crimson played an entirely instrumental show when Adrian Belew was sick. Sadly the costs of staffing the venue were apparently too high, and that opportunity was lost. Hopefully, depending on where they were travelling from, some of the attendees may be able to catch some of the later shows.
Meanwhile, we wish Robert a speedy recovery.
