King Crimson @ Jazz Fest… in Rochester
Tickets for the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on June 24 & 25 are already on sale, although there’s been no official announcement yet regarding who might be performing, except for Chaka Khan, who postponed her originally scheduled performance from last summer’s SPAC fest due to a stint in rehab.
On the other hand, the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival – which takes place from June 23-July 1 – has announced that Robert Fripp will lead King Crimson into the Eastman Theatre’s Kodak Hall at 8pm on Friday, June 30 – the week following SPAC’s jazz fest. Tickets for the Rochester concert are now on sale, priced at $75, $95, $115 & $125.
Other acts announced for the Rochester fest include Mavis Staples, Joss Stone, Maceo Parker, and Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox…
