AceShowbiz - Rockers The Black Crowes will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album "Shake Your Money Maker" by performing the project in full on a global reunion tour.
Band co-founders and brothers Chris Robinson and Rich Robinson have been teasing the group's comeback of late, updating its Facebook page and launching new Instagram and Twitter profiles, and on Monday, November 11, the stars confirmed reports of their imminent return.
The Black Crowes will launch a 46-date trek on June 17, 2020, kicking off the jaunt in Austin, Texas, and wrapping up the gigs in Los Angeles on September 19.
To mark the special announcement, the Robinsons will stage two intimate shows this week - first playing New York City's Bowery Ballroom on Monday night, and then taking over the Troubadour in L.A. on Thursday, November 14.
The brothers will be joined by an all-new line-up, including Earthless guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, and drummer Ojha from the Once and Future Band, for The Black Crowes' first live shows together since originally parting ways in 2013 due to a sibling fall-out.
In a statement announcing the tour news, Chris Robinson writes, "I'm thrilled & blessed to be playing with my brother celebrating the music we've made & bringing our lives together full circle. Long live Rock n' Roll & The Black Crowes!"
"First and foremost, I'm really happy to have my brother back in my life," adds Rich. "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."
And in an upcoming Rolling Stone interview, the musicians insist their days of in-fighting are well behind them.
"No one is here to be a d**k," says Rich. "We love this music. We're musicians. We're brothers. We love each other. We love this opportunity... Changing the context with Chris and I and all new people (in the band) is a much healthier place for us."
