As THE BLACK CROWES and TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND continue their own spring tours, they’re excited about their recently announced co-headlining summer tour of outdoor venues along with special guests The London Souls. It runs July 19 in Nashville, TN through August 15 in Rochester Hills, MI.
“We’ve been fortunate to be able to tour with many great bands in our career including Jimmy Page, The Stones, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, The Who, Tom Petty and Oasis,” says The Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson. “This tour will be just as exciting for us. I was able to see Derek and Susan recently and was blown away. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this summer tour will unfold and what surprises happen.” Chris Robinson says, “We’re over the moon not only to be playing with stellar musicians but the fact that Susan and Derek are friends makes our summer run that much more fulfilling.”
“It’s going to be great to be out with the Crowes this summer–both bands are road-tested and shoot from the hip,” says Derek Trucks of Tedeschi Trucks Band. “It should be a hell of a tour.” His wife Susan Tedeschi agrees: “The whole band is really looking forward to the summer tour. We’re excited to work in some new songs from our upcoming album. I’ve been a longtime fan of the Crowes and think our bands are going to have a blast touring together. ”
The Black Crowes–Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Rich Robinson (guitar, vocals), Steve Gorman (drums), Sven Pipien (bass), Adam MacDougall (keyboards) and new member Jackie Greene (guitar, vocals)–have sold over 35 million albums and are known as one of rock’s best live acts. These powerful performances are captured on their newest release WISER FOR THE TIME, a four-sided vinyl collection and double album digital download. They’re currently touring the U.S. on their “Lay Down With Number 13” tour, their first tour since recently ending a two-year hiatus. The trek launched with five sold-out U.K. shows and and is now in progress in the U.S., continuing through June 2. After that, the band will return to Europe for a leg of dates June 18 to July 6, including headlining shows, festivals and two stadium concerts with Bruce Springsteen.
Tedeschi Trucks Band, the 11-piece ensemble led by husband-wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, have proven themselves one of the hottest, most uplifting acts on the road today. Formed in 2010 when Derek and Susan decided to set aside their successful solo careers and join forces, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers a hearty roots-rich musical mix fronted by Trucks’ signature slide guitar sound and Tedeschi’s pliant, honey-to-husk voice. With a repertoire that includes its Grammy-winning debut Revelator and dynamic live follow-up Everybody’s Talkin’, the band kicked off 2013 in the studio to record their second studio album, set for release in late summer. They recently wrapped up five shows in Australia and are back on tour in the U.S. this spring before launching the summer tour.
