Has anyone caught the BC on their current tour? I just love their new album the addition of Luther has added so much to their sound really looking forward to seeing them.

No I haven't caught the current tour, but I did see they are offering a free 2-hour show compilation from the band's recent club gigs.

Highly recommended.

I caught the last night, March 20th of the “One Night Only’ shows at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. It was incredible. Their sound is fatter than ever, and they are passing out a great vibe. The drummer Steve Gorman was way into it, and edging on each member as they would solo.
That said I think Luther is just beginning to explore the role.
I have a feeling his tone and overall roll will continue to evolve.

I was on www.Crowesbase.net and BOA said the main summer tour will start I think around June 29th?

We have a lot of great shows ahead!

I caught the Owensboro, KY show which happened to be one of only 2 shows that was not a 'One Night Only' show, so they did not play Warpaint start to finish. They did play several tracks from the new CD though.

The whole show was great. Luther's sound adds a ton, Chris is singing better then ever, some serious soul. I saw two shows last October and the Owensboro show BLEW those 2 shows away. First, Luther. He's the man. Dude can play some serious guitar. He's been one of my favorite guitarist touring for the past several years anyway, so to hear him play with the BC was extra special. Second, the new keyboardist, name slips my mind, is light years better than 6 months ago. He is no Eddie, never will be. But he was adding value versus taking away from the sound.

And I love to watch Rich lead the band. I've been fortunate to sit in the first 12 rows for 4 straight Crowes shows and I love watching Rich lead the band through the setlist changes in the songs. Reminds me of Warren leading any band he's on stage with.

Go see the Black Crowes. You will not be disappointed!

I went last night and heard rumours that they would play Warpaint start to finish. Although they didn't the set (about 2 and a half hours) predominantly leaned back to it but still had a good mix of other material from the other albums. The boys rocked and jammed and Chris Robinson was on fine voice. I did note that there was no mike for Luther though which I thought was a little strange.

I thought that they could have turned up Luther's guitar a little and left him more space to open up and really let go. But then again that would have been the Allstars and this is the Crowes. He was faithful to all the solos on previous Black Crowes material and even made it look a little easy. He was also nice enough not to wipe the floor with Rich Robinson even though it was pretty obvious who the better guitar player was.

At the end of the show after the encore they all put their coats on, gave the audience a wave and off they walked. Made me wonder where they were all off to and recalled that I'd rather had another song instead of the drum solo. "Only the Allman Brothers Band can do drum solos and make them sound good" I remarked.

Going next weekend in Buffalo and looking forward to it. Have missed them much and with Luther in the game, it will be great I am sure!

I caught the "one night only" show here at the Park West in Chicago and I absolutely loved it. Luther was on fire. It was nice to hear the album in it's entirety too. We got a Good Friday and they encored with Don't Do It which was just plain badass. I agree about the keys player. When we saw them at the Taste of Chicago last summer with Umphrey's it was almost sad. It was like seeing a Black Crowes cover band (w/ Stacey I believe is their producer/guitarist that was helping out on the tour). I love the new album and to be honest hope Luther is down for this over the long haul ala Derek with the Allmans. He really is a stud. Wow just noticed I wrote that whole email in a stream of consciousness.....hope it makes sense...peace!

I saw the show at Brixton Academy last night. The sound in that place is abysmal, and affected slightly my enjoyment of the show. The band were good if not great, Luther whilst good and giving 100% just doesn't take me places like Marc Ford could. Nice set list, Chris seemed in fine voice. Crowd seemed to love it. Not the best i've seen them nor the worst, an enjoyable evening overall.

Setlist:

Wounded Bird
Sting Me
Black Moon Creeping
Seeing Things
Walk Believer Walk
Poor Elijah/Tribute To Johnson
My Morning Song
Wiser Time
By Your Side
Oh Josephine
Downtown Moneywaster
Thron In My Pride
Goodbye Daughters Of The Revolution
Jealous Again
Remedy
- encore -
God's Got It
Don't Know Why
Sometimes Salvation

Good review . Thanks for being specific about exactly how things played out instead of just saying " the show rocked " . I like knowing things like your detail like Gorman's interaction with the other band members . Stuff like that makes the best kind of show .
