Last week, the music world buzzed about leaked singles from two popular artists. This week, all the talk is about rock bands and their last tours. Yesterday, we wrote a blog post about Black Sabbath’s current Reunion Tour that will likely be the last in the band’s storied history. We’ve learned of another potentially last tour for a famous American rock band, Black Crowes. Rumors have it that members of the group will go on their separate ways next year, some looking to record solo albums.
“This year in The Black Crowes has re-affirmed my belief in the power of music & the power of love. Can’t wait to see what the future holds, long live rock & roll!” – Chris Robinson
The Black Crowes just finished a month-long summer tour with Tedeshchi Trucks Band mid-August, one they called their favorite tour ever. Those fortunate enough to be in the audience for the final show listened to nearly an hour and a half of Crowe’s hits like “Wiser Time” and “Thorn in My Pride”. The August 15 concert at Meadow Brook Music Festival was followed up with a performance at The Peach Music Festival Sunday. The band will break until the beginning of September when they perform at a handful of other Festivals including Interlocken Music Festival and Telluride Blues & Brews Festival before the fall tour dates begin.
The Black Crowes recently announced new dates to the U.S. leg of their Lay Down with Number 13 tour including four acoustic shows at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester and four nights of electric music at NYC’s Terminal 5. Look for special guests to join the group on stage at each of the eight concerts. The final show of the tour will be at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on December 14 in San Francisco. Like the aforementioned eight show, there are plans for special guests at this stop as well. The Northern California concert will be the last chance for fans to see the band for a while, if ever. Multiple concerts will also be played in New Orleans, Denver, and Los Angeles. Black Crowes tickets to the second Los Angeles show at The Wiltern are the most expensive, averaging $150 followed by the Black Crowe’s Las Vegas show at Hard Rock Hotel-The Joint averaging $145. Tickets to the recently announced Black Crowes New York shows and San Francisco show will be available shortly.
