THE BLACK CROWES



RECENTLY WRAPPED U.S. “SAY GOODBYE TO THE BAD GUYS” TOUR

WITH SIX-SHOW SOLD-OUT RUN AT SAN FRANCISCO’S FILLMORE
Holy cow: this is going to be a great week!!!

FINAL LEG OF 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR SET FOR JULY 2011 IN EUROPE

THE BLACK CROWES recently wrapped up their last scheduled U.S. show in San Francisco as part of a six-show sold-out run at the Fillmore December 12-19--and will embark on their final eight shows in Europe (July 7-18), concluding their 20th anniversary tour in (appropriately) Amsterdam with a two-night engagement at The Paradiso. The band recently announced they are going on an indefinite hiatus to spend time with family and work on other projects.

On their 2010 “Say Goodbye To The Bad Guys” U.S. tour, The Black Crowes--Chris Robinson (vocals/guitar), Rich Robinson (guitar), Steve Gorman (drums), Sven Pipien (bass), Luther Dickinson (guitar) and Adam MacDougall (keyboards)--played two sets (one acoustic, one electric) most nights, varying songs each night with hits, deep album cuts, new music and select covers, illuminating their 20-year career of cosmic American music. At the Fillmore, the group also performed the Stones’ “Midnight Rambler” plus--as the final song of the Fillmore run--“The Last Time.”

In anticipation of the upcoming lengthy hiatus, the band recorded and released CROWEOLOGY (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records) their first-ever double acoustic album, which features new arrangements of their best-loved songs and the band’s catalogue picks. In a four-star Rolling Stone review, David Fricke said, “the album is much better than a greatest-hits affair, it’s a reason to go on (8/3/10),” while the Boston Globe’s Zeth Lundy called The Black Crowes “one of the country’s most underrated and misunderstood bands (8/9/10).”

Fans and media alike embraced the acoustic/electric shows. Gary Graff of the Oakland Press (Detroit, MI) described the August 20 show as “…a long and exciting set of organic, flowing rock 'n' roll, filling three hours of music (plus a 15-minute intermission) with instrumental dexterity and extemporaneous jamming that drew influence from, and even reached the level of, forebears such as the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band (8/21/10) and Evan Schlansky of American Songwriter noted that “the band seemed at the peak of their powers (9/13/10).” Writing at Rollingstone.com, David Fricke said: “...this lineup is the best the Robinsons have had in the band's two decades, and it is playing at magnum force...It is hard to believe that a band playing at this level is about to power down. But if that's the way it's gotta be, then the Crowes are leaving at a peak. See them there while you can (9/13/10).” The band’s musical contributions were saluted along the summer’s tour route when they were inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame (September 11 in North Atlanta) at the 32nd Annual Georgia Music Hall of Fame Awards Show.

The final overseas shows of the “Say Goodbye To The Bad Guys” tour are as follows:

There is something to be said about going out on a high note - they are playing SO well - and I guess Amsterdam is a good spot for a high note! Still...what a shame.

A must see in London IF Luther is still playing in the Band. I know NMA are out on the road promoting their new album but there appears to be dates free to enable him to travel to Europe with the Crowes. Hope so!

My opinion is that if the Crowes stayed together much longer, they'd be at each others throats (again). At least the Robinson brothers.

Looks like the Chris Robinson Band is making a debut in the spring.

Well, some people have to make some choices or spend lots of money.
Large overlap with Gregg's tour.
Paradiso, however, is hard to resist. But let me first see what Gregg's schedule will be (and Derek/Susan???) in that timeframe.

Btw: Luther is May 27 or 28 already in the Netherlands (Amersfoort) with NMAS.

The Black Crowes added an European tour date. They will be headlining The Belgium Rhythm & Blues Festival (BRBF) in Peer, Belgium on the 16th of july. Since i already had plans to visit this festival on that day this now means i gonna see the Black Crowes 3 nights in a row. BRBF followed by 2 accoustic & electric set shows in Paradiso, Amsterdam.

The show I saw this summer was the best one I've seen with the band. I agree with David Fricke. This is the best incarnation of the band. Marc who??? Will definately miss 'em. This incarnation reminds me of that remarkable run Warren Haynes enjoyed where he seeminly could do no wrong.
