Belew, who is best know for his work with King Crimson, most recently released a new solo album, e, last year. “I’m getting sooo excited about playing the one man show painting with guitar that I’ve been working day and night designing new sounds, learning material, practicing, and writing new pieces,” Below recently wrote on a blog post for his official website. “The state-of-the-art downsized super rig is slowly, byte by byte becoming a reality and I dare say my guitar has never sounded so good, positively rife with new sonic wrinkles.”

He went on to describe that this summer’s tour will present fans with a unique show. “Apart from several sections from e and the customary version of drive I won’t be playing much of anything you’ve heard me do before with the trio or krimson,” he wrote. “I’ve chosen mostly songs from op zop too wah, a couple of bears songs (one I’ve never played live), a few things from side 1, and mixed them with brand new pieces, places for some (hopefully) blazing guitar improvs and a chance to field questions from the audience.”

While on tour, Belew will also showcase some of his own paintings.
