The Black Crowes Set for 2020 ‘Shake Your Money Maker’ Tour

The Black Crowes are reuniting for a North American tour to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album Shake Your Money Maker.

A concert poster, spotted on Saturday in New York City, revealed two show dates in July 2020 but complete details remained a mystery until today.

Brothers Chris and Rich Robinson officially announced the reunion and a 46-date tour Monday morning – sharing details in an interview on the Howard Stern show. They also revealed that the Crowes will be playing a special show tonight, November 11th at New York’s Bowery Ballroom to mark the tour announcement. Another show will take place on Thursday, November 14th at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. These will be the group’s first performances since December 2013.

Their now-confirmed tour begins June 17, 2020, in Austin and closes out September 19, 2020, in Los Angeles. You can see a complete list of tour dates below and visit their website for tickets and VIP packages, all of which go on sale today.

“I’m thrilled and blessed to be playing with my brother celebrating the music we’ve made and bringing our lives together full circle,” frontman Chris said in a press release. “Long live rock n’ roll & the Black Crowes!”

“First and foremost, I’m really happy to have my brother back in my life,” Rich added To be able to play music again together and celebrate the first record we made as kids, is a gift. To have these songs stand up after 30 years is something I could’ve never fathomed.”

The Robinson brothers have become almost as famous for their feud as for their music but the two insist that they have now made peace with each other. “No one is here to be a dick,” explained Rich. “We love this music. We’re musicians. We’re brothers. We love each other. We love this opportunity … Changing the context with Chris and I and all new people is a much healthier place for us.”

On the Howard Stern Show today, brother Chris admitted that he had to work through some personal issues in order for a reunion to happen. “I said some horrible things. I was in a negative place, but you know what, I’ve apologized to Rich about that. A lot of things have changed for me in the last two years. I was in a relationship that was failing. I was in a negative place. I was dealing with depression. And I’m sitting over here, like, ‘Why am I saying bad things about my brother?’”

The brothers have enlisted a new lineup for the upcoming tour, which includes guitarist Isiah Mitchell of psych-rock band Earthless, veteran session bassist Tim LeFebvre who appeared on David Bowie’s Blackstar and keyboardist Joel Robinow and drummer Raj Ojha of prog/psych-pop group Once and Future Band.
