And so to Washington. The US tour successfully completed amid huge personal sighs of relief. We have a very dedicated team, who surfed the waves and storms very skilfully, arguably better than anyone could have done, but it is difficult not to believe that the Good Fairy was not also looking down on us. A day sooner or later with the hurricane or the floods and we would undoubtedly have lost some shows.
With nothing to do the next day other than fly home, I was able to enjoy the whole show – and near the conclusion, with the opening lines of Starless, I was quite overcome with emotion. None of us know if Crimson will ever grace a US stage again – but if they don’t, this was certainly a fitting conclusion.
