Black Crowes conclude 2013 together, will focus on solo efforts in future
The Black Crowes have added more stops to their forthcoming "Lay Down With Number 13" tour, while simultaneously announcing the trek as their final planned run as a band.
The Southern rockers, who recently wrapped up a co-headlining run with Tedeschi Trucks Band, will take to the road again for a headlining outing that begins Sept. 5 in Cooperstown, NY. Since last check, shows have been added in a dozen cities, including the trek's only acoustic shows, which will take place in Port Chester, NY (10/18-10/19; 10/21-10/22).
The 46-date run will come to a close Dec. 14 in San Francisco.
Following the 2013 outing, band members will spend 2014 pursuing solo projects, according to a press release. They "have no future plans for touring."
"The tour this year has been a great run, and we're looking forward to the fall dates in a lot of our favorite towns," drummer Steve Gorman said in a press release. "After 23 years of doing all we could to kill this beast -- and I mean we really threw everything we had at it but just couldn't get it to die -- I think it's obvious that the best course of action is to enjoy it as much as we can."
The Black Crowes released "Wiser For the Time," a four-sided vinyl collection which is also available as a double-album digital download, in June. The band's most recent studio effort, "Croweology," surface in 2010. That two-disc collection features 20 tracks spanning the group's career, including a cover of Chris Ethridge and Gram Parsons' "She."
