The Black Crowes announce reunion tour, first in 6 years: 1 Canadian date

After nearly half a decade of being apart, American blues rockers The Black Crowes are making their highly-anticipated return.

Not only will the Twice As Hard band officially reunite, but they will take their debut album, Shake Your Money Maker (1990), across North American to celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2020.

The 46-date trek was announced on Monday morning through SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, where host Howard Stern welcomed surprise guests, Rich and Chris Robinson.

As well as their comeback and rekindled relationship, the brothers and co-founding members announced that with the return of The Black Crowes, they will be performing Shake Your Money Maker front to back.

In Jan. 2015, guitarist Rich Robinson announced the group’s disbandment, following a disagreement with Chris about who owns the band.

During their broadcast on The Howard Stern Show, the brothers played three fan-favourite hits: Jealous Again, She Talks to Angels, and Hard to Handle.

In wake of the highly anticipated-tour announcement, The Black Crowes performed later that night, their first official concert together since Feb. 2014.

The newest iteration of the band busted out an 11-song set at the iconic Bowery Ballroom venue in New York City, playing to an intimate gathering of fewer than 600 people.

The lineup consists of guitarist Isiah Mitchell (Earthless), bass playerTim LeFebvre (David Bowie’s Blackstar), keyboardist Joel Robinow and drummer Raj Ojha (Once and Future Band), according to Rolling Stone.

The upcoming reunion tour kicks off on June 17 in Austin, Tex., and runs through to Sept. 19, where the tour will conclude at The Forum in Los Angeles.

Tickets are now on sale to the general public and can be purchased through the official Black Crowes website.
