THE BLACK CROWES have sold over 35 million albums and are known as one of rock’s best live acts. They’re currently touring the U.S. on their “Lay Down With Number 13” tour, their first tour since recently ending a two-year hiatus. The in-progress tour launched with five sold-out U.K. shows and began this week in the U.S. and continues through June 2. After that, the group will return to Europe for a leg of dates June 18 to July 6, including headlining shows, festivals and two stadium concerts with Bruce Springsteen. The iconic and influential band–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)–are reaching deep inside their songbook and extensive catalog, performing greatly varied set lists.
The band recently released WISER FOR THE TIME, which features a mammoth eight sides on four vinyl albums containing 26 songs–15 acoustic and 11 electric–from THE BLACK CROWES’ five-night, sold-out NYC performances in the fall of 2010. These never-released-before versions are also available as a double album digital download. The WISER FOR THE TIME track listing can be found on
