The Black Crowes
About The Black Crowes:
At their final performance on October 31, 2001, THE BLACK CROWES announced a hiatus.
Last summer, rumors about THE BLACK CROWES taking flight again began when their long-dormant website (www.blackcrowes.com) suddenly became animated, showing two “Crowes” heads facing each other as audio clips of the band’s music played. Instantly, message boards on the Internet began buzzing.
After months of fan and media speculation, on January 11, 2005, THE BLACK CROWES announced their highly anticipated and long-awaited return to the live concert stage with five special shows—billed by brothers CHRIS and RICH ROBINSON as “ALL JOIN HANDS”—at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
All five shows sold out instantly, marking the fastest New York sell-out that THE BLACK CROWES have experienced to date. To meet the absolutely overwhelming fan demand, two more shows were added at Hammerstein. And those sold out. Total tickets sold in New York City: 22,000.
High-profile invitations to perform on the main stage at Bonnaroo and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival followed—all without a single note even being played.
And now the story continues. THE BLACK CROWES—Chris (vocals), Rich (guitars), Steve Gorman (drums) and Sven Pipien (bass), recently joined by Paul Stacey (guitars) and Rob Clores (keyboards)—have returned in full force to share “15 Years of Cosmic Rock-n-Roll” with their devoted fans.
From the beginning, when they roared out of the gate with their multi-platinum debut album SHAKE YOUR MONEYMAKER in 1990, THE BLACK CROWES have played by their own rules. They’ve gone against the grain and formed an intimate connection with their audience, while maintaining their independence and creative freedom from standard industry practices. This has earned them the title of “The Most Rock ‘N Roll Rock ‘N Roll Band In The World.”
CHRIS and RICH have never veered from their mission of creating rock and roll that is fierce and genuine, with a sound that doesn’t conform to easy categorization. You can hear it in the band’s six studio albums—which have racked up worldwide album sales exceeding 19 million—and in their panoramic live shows. They performed over 2000 shows between 1990 and 2001, and their gigs became legendary for set lists that changed every night and signature incendiary musical explorations. THE BLACK CROWES are one of the few contemporary bands who’ve shared the stage with Jimmy Page, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, AC/DC, The Who, Neil Young, The Grateful Dead and many other legendary artists.
