Last night at the historic Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California, The Black Crowes were joined by a very special guest – Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones. The band, along with Wood, performed the Faces’ 1971 classic, “Stay with Me.” Check out live footage of the performance below.

It’s not the first time The Black Crowes have performed with a special guest at The Greek. Almost 25 years ago, the band was joined by another rock icon – Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page – for two nights to perform several Zeppelin classics, a few blues covers, and some Crowes tunes. The shows were recorded for the album, Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes: Live at The Greek, which was released in 1999. The double-disc outing was reissued in 1999 through TVT Records. Due to contractual issues at the time between The Black Crowes and their record label, none of their original songs appear on the album.

Last month, The Black Crowes released Happiness Bastards, their first all-new album in 15 years. The record debuted at No. 15 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart. On April 2, they launched the North American leg of the Happiness Bastards World Tour. The run wraps up on May 7 at The Met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. From there, band will head overseas for a string of dates across Europe and the UK.

After previously canceling a bulk of their farewell tour, Aerosmith confirmed the rescheduled dates last week. The Peace Out Tour resumes on September 20 at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where they already played at the start of the original run. The group will also be returning for an encore at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the tour kicked off last year (check out highlights from the show in the clip below). A third addition to the trek will be a performance at the Kia Center in Orlando, Florida on February 11, 2025. The band will wrap up the 40-date trek on February 26, 2025, taking their final bows at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York. The Black Crowes are still serving as special guests for the entire tour. Opening night in Pittsburgh will feature a special performance by Teddy Swims to kick off the evening, stepping in for The Black Crowes.

This spring, Ronnie Wood and The Rolling Stones are returning to the road. Their North American stadium tour will see frontman Mick Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards, and guitarist Ronnie Wood perform at stadiums across the continent. Produced by AEG and Concerts West, The Hackney Diamonds Tour kicks off on April 28 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, and wraps up on July 17 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The run includes stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Orlando, Atlanta, and more. On May 2, the band is headlining the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in Louisiana alongside Foo Fighters, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Heart, Bonnie Raitt, The Killers, Greta Van Fleet, Hozier, Vampire Weekend, The Revivalists, Joe Bonamassa, The Wallflowers, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, The Allman Betts Band, Samantha Fish, and more.

Last October, The Rolling Stones released their acclaimed new album, Hackney Diamonds. The record hit No. 1 in 19 countries around the globe, and features the GRAMMY®-nominated single, “Angry.” Their 23rd original studio effort, Hackney Diamonds will also be The Rolling Stones’ first album without founding drummer Charlie Watts who passed away at 80 in August of 2021. During a live-streaming event hosted by The Tonight Show‘s Jimmy Fallon, the band revealed that two tracks on the album – “Mess It Up” and “Live by the Sword” – were recorded in 2019 with Watts on drums.

“Ever since Charlie’s gone, it’s different,” guitarist Keith Richards said during the event. “He’s ‘Number Four.’”
