    Last month, online reports began to emerge suggesting The Black Crowes could be about to reform.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that the band’s former manager Pete Angelus said he was was aware of a deal that brothers Chris Robinson and Rich Robinson “made with Live Nation for a 2020 tour,” although at the time, Live Nation told the site they didn’t have “any intel” on a possible run of live shows.

    However, just last week the band’s social media channels lit up with a Black Crowes cartoon graphic – and the same image has now begun to appear on billboards in the US, suggesting that something is indeed happening behind the scenes.

    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report that the logo has appeared alongside the I-94 in the city, while JamBase show the same logo in New Jersey at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel.

    Next year will mark the 30th anniversary of the band’s celebrated debut album Shake Your Money Maker, although if a reunion is indeed on the cards, it looks unlikely that drummer Steve Gorman will be involved.

    He told UCR: “This reunion, I’ve heard from many sources for several months that this is happening. “This ain’t got nothing to do with trying to re-find a musical connection. This is a very different motivation and impetus, so the last thing that the brothers Robinson are going to do is involve someone who is going to take a chunk of the pie away from them.”

    Watch this space.


    Looks like they're doing this for all the wrong reasons, but then again, anyone who's read Steve's book (Hard To Handle - Highly recommend it!) knows that's nothing new.

    That being said, I'd probably still go see them, if they play anywhere near me. The Crowes has been one of my absolute favourite bands since their debut and I never had the chance to catch them live, so I'd settle for just Chris and Rich with a group of random musicians.

    So it's official:

    This morning (Monday, November 11) radio legend Howard Stern, one of THE BLACK CROWES' earliest supporters, announced the reunion of Chris and Rich Robinson, who will tour as THE BLACK CROWES once again, playing the iconic record start to finish.
    The tour starts on June 17 in Austin, Texas and ends on September 19 in Los Angeles, California.

    Chris and Rich will be joined by guitarist Isiah Mitchell (EARTHLESS), bassist Tim LeFebvre (David Bowie's "Blackstar") and keyboardist Joel Robinow and drummer Ojha of ONCE AND FUTURE BAND.

    Chris Robinson says of reuniting: "I'm thrilled and blessed to be playing with my brother celebrating the music we've made and bringing our lives together full circle. Long live rock n' roll and THE BLACK CROWES!"

    Rich Robinson adds: "First and foremost, I'm really happy to have my brother back in my life. To be able to play music again together and celebrate the first record we made as kids is a gift. To have these songs stand up after 30 years is something I could've never fathomed."

    THE BLACK CROWES will celebrate the tour announcement by playing an intimate gig at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City tonight (Monday, November 11) and at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California on Thursday (November 14). More info about tickets will be shared on @theblackcrowes Instagram page.
