The Black Crowes Announce Fall Tour Dates

Photo Credit: Ross HalfinThe Black Crowes have announced a new leg of U.S. dates for their “Lay Down With Number 13” tour, September 5-December 14, encompassing headline dates and festival/special event shows (see the itinerary below). This news comes as the band is gearing up for their co-headlining tour with theTedeschi Trucks Band which runs July 19 in Nashville, TN through August 15 in Rochester Hills, MI.


The band’s “Lay Down With Number 13” tour–ending a two-year hiatus–kicked off March 24 with five sold-out U.K. shows. They’ve been flying high since in theU.S. and in Europe, where they performed June 18 to July 6, including headlining shows, festivals and two stadium concerts with Bruce Springsteen.


As always, he 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)–reach deep inside their songbook and extensive catalog. They perform greatly varied set lists and establish a deep, magical bond with their audiences.


The Black Crowes have sold over 35 million albums and are known as one of rock’s best live acts.  These powerful performances are captured on their latest release WISER FOR THE TIME, a four-sided vinyl collection and double album digital download (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records).


Here’s a sampling of the critical praise THE BLACK CROWES are generating in 2013:


“The band brought its A-game…the instrumentals were dynamic and concise… [Chris Robinson’s] expressive voice can still do plenty of heavy-lifting…They sounded lean and tight and in fighting shape…The middle of the show included some wild instrumental odysseys. None was more visceral and transcendent than during ‘Thorn in My Pride,’ one of several highlights. The others: the fusion of ‘Hard to Handle’ with ‘Hush’ the Billy Joe Royal song made famous by Deep Purple; ‘Soul Singing’; and ‘She Talks to Angels.'”
