Black Crowes Reunion

When they said they were going on an “indefinite hiatus” I honestly thought we would never see the Black Crowes live again. Well, it seems I was wrong. The boys announced over Christmas that they will not only head back out on the road in 2013, they will also be offering a new live release.
Expect the vinyl version of “Wiser For The Time” to come out on March 19th. This 4 disc collection contains 26 songs all in all – 15 acoustic tunes, and 11 electric, all from their sold out NYC performances back in 2010. According to the Black Crowes, these never before released tunes will also be available as digital downloads.
The Crowes are also offer a band new free mobile web app through their website. You can download it here: http://www.blackcrowes.com/
Over the years, I have been able to see the Black Crowes several times in concert. Yes, I have seen them suck. But to be honest, the last 3 shows I have seen were absolutely fantastic and have made them one of my favorite live acts. Their southern rock soul style translates exceptionally well to live performances. They are great songwriters and outstanding musicians, all of which are at the top of their game. I’m glad to hear that the band will be heading back out on the road.
You can catch the Black Crowes here in Chicago on Tuesday April 16th, and Wednesday April 17th at the Vic. I’ll post the whole tour date schedule below.
