Funchal to Camara de Lobos

King Crimson Birmingham

King Crimson gig live at the Birmingham Symphony Hall. Went with Gerald, we had tickets in a high place so looking down on the gig. I’ve been a fan for more years than I want to mention, but this is the first time I’ve seen them live. Goosebumps at the beginning and near the end […]
