For this go-around, the touring lineup includes founding guitarist Robert Fripp; drummers Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin, and Pat Mastelotto; bassist Tony Levin, saxophonist Mel Collins; and rhythm guitarist Jakko Jakszyk. Each musician has been a member or collaborator at some point in King Crimson’s 45-plus-year run, most notably Mastelotto, who joined in 1994 and appears on some 20 albums, and Collins, who replaced Ian McDonald on 1970′s Lizard and 1971′s Islands.
