The Black Crowes Announce 2020 Reunion Tour

The Black Crowes [Josh Cheuse]

(TRR) – The Black Crowes are back. On Monday, Chris and Rich Robinson confirmed that the band will play their first live shows in six years. The group toured in 2013, and disbanded (again) in 2015. The massive 46-date summer tour kicks off on June 17 at the Austin360 Amphitheater in Austin, TX and wraps up on September 19 at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA.

Tonight, November 11, The Black Crowes are firing things up with a surprise performance at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. They will travel across the country for another intimate performance at The Troubadour in Los Angeles on November 14.

“I think this is pure. We went off into a lot of things. There’s no jamming,” Chris Robinson tells Rolling Stone in an upcoming interview. “There’s no extraneous stuff. This is the purest Black Crowes that people first [heard] … I hope we reconnect with some people who lost their way with us because of all of our other shit we were doing.”

The tour celebrates not only the Robinson brothers reuniting, but the 20th anniversary of their seminal album Shake Your Money Maker. Released in 1990, he record peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and spawned four Top 10 Mainstream Rock singles.

“It’s always been our band and it’s funny through all the trajectory of the good and the bad — the joy and the frustrations,” Chris says. “[Rich and I] were laughing, saying the one thing [we] can always agree on is, Shake Your Money Maker’s a good record.”
