King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew mentions a promised solo effort, another tour with some fellow Crimson alums, and a “secret thing” to be announced later this year, in a new talk with Guitar Player.
That’s sparked speculation on just what else is on tap for Belew. Create Digital Music, for instance, reported that he’ll join Nine Inch Nails on tour.
Of course, Belew previously appeared on several Nine Inch Nails projects, including The Downward Spiral. NIN frontman Trent Reznor also recently announced plans for a remastered edition of The Fragile, which likewise featured Belew.
For his part, Belew is remaining tight lipped, only calling it “a secret thing that’s going to be happening later this year that I can’t tell you about yet.”
What we do know: Belew will again take to the road in a joint concert series featuring his Adrian Belew Power Trio and the Stick Men, called the Crimson Projeckt. The tour will hit Japan in March, with both groups playing individual sets and then joining together at the conclusion of each show for an hour-long double-trio performance.
“Two drummers, and two bass players,” Belew says. “It’s pretty big.”
Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto of the Stick Men are also King Crimson alums.
