District 97 Featuring Special Guest John Wetton and the Music of King Crimson

To fans of Progressive Rock, John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia, UK) needs no introduction. He has been regarded as one of the premier vocalists and songwriters at the forefront of the genre since the early 1970s. Continuing that tradition of forward thinking, John now teams up with District 97, one of the leading lights of the new generation of Prog Rock bands.
 
District 97 is undoubtedly the most musically adventurous rock band to feature an American Idol Top 10 Female Finalist. With her fantastic voice, and looks to match, lead vocalist Leslie Hunt has captured the imagination of rock fans everywhere. 
 
Following a highly successful inaugural European tour, she and District 97 now embark on their most ambitious US tour to date.  Their new album, Trouble With Machines, is laced with complex yet catchy vocal tunes such as "The Perfect Young Man", which features a guest vocal appearance by legendary Progressive Rock icon, John Wetton.
