The Black Crowes announce Fall 2013 tour dates, details

The Black Crowes have announced a new leg of U.S. dates for their “Lay Down With Number 13” tour, September 5-December 14, encompassing headline dates and festival/special event shows (see the itinerary and critical praise below).

The Black Crowes have announced a new leg of U.S. dates for their “Lay Down With Number 13” tour, September 5-December 14, encompassing headline dates and festival/special event shows (see the itinerary and critical praise below).

The band is also gearing up for their co-headlining tour with the Tedeschi Trucks Band which runs July 19 in Nashville, TN through August 15 in Rochester Hills, MI.

The band’s “Lay Down With Number 13” tour--ending a two-year hiatus--kicked off March 24 with five sold-out U.K. shows. They’ve been flying high since in the U.S. and in Europe, where they performed June 18 to July 6, including headlining shows, festivals and two stadium concerts with Bruce Springsteen.

As always, Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Rich Robinson (guitar, vocals), Steve Gorman (drums), Sven Pipien (bass), Adam MacDougall (keyboards) and new member Jackie Greene (guitar, vocals)--reach deep inside their songbook and extensive catalog. They perform greatly varied set lists and establish a deep, magical bond with their audiences.

The band has sold over 35 million albums and are known as one of rock’s best live acts.  These powerful performances are captured on their latest release WISER FOR THE TIME, a four-sided vinyl collection and double album digital download (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records).

Here’s some critical praise:

“The band brought its A-game...the instrumentals were dynamic and concise... [Chris Robinson’s] expressive voice can still do plenty of heavy-lifting...They sounded lean and tight and in fighting shape...The middle of the show included some wild instrumental odysseys. None was more visceral and transcendent than during ‘Thorn in My Pride,’ one of several highlights. The others: the fusion of ‘Hard to Handle’ with ‘Hush’ the Billy Joe Royal song made famous by Deep Purple; ‘Soul Singing’; and ‘She Talks to Angels.'"

--Timothy Finn, KANSAS CITY STAR, 6/1/13

“…a high-volume, high-octane performance that reclaimed the Crowes’ stature as a fierce, music-first live act.”

--Gary Graff, THEOAKLANDPRESS.COM, 4/15/13

“’Wiser Time’ is shaping up to be for the Crowes what ‘Dreams’ is for Allmans--a philosophical psychedelic epic.”

--Scott McLennan, BOSTONGLOBE.COM, 4/15/13

"...the band was relentless, hammering out their set with conviction and urgency, making every note count...Steve Pipien, their elite bassist is beyond stellar. His lines and fills created a tapestry upon which the rest of the band could rely on sonically. The man is in a realm of his own."

--Charles Rosenberg, EXAMINER.COM, 4/4/13

“…the Black Crowes have gracefully touched or referenced all that is great in roots and rock music over the course of a monster discography with…swagger, piss, and vinegar…’Wiser Time’ gave the crowd a brief reprieve from the incendiary blues-rock salvos of guitar and pounding drums of ‘Remedy’ while showcasing Chris' huge range--still unspoiled at his age. ‘She Talks to Angels’ was a crowd pleaser to be sure, an aural sigh during the otherwise high-octane performance, however, it was the rockers and the burners that signified the return of the Black Crowes to their roots as an absolutely deadly rock 'n' roll unit. Rich Robinson's ability as guitarist has grown immensely over the years; once content being mostly a perfect rhythm machine, he pulled out leads worthy of any one of the band's famed former guitar foils, and his slide playing in particular made for some of the set's zenith guitar moments.”

--David Von Bader, NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH, 5/6/13
