The Black Crowes ready for theater trek behind vinyl release
The Black Crowes have unleashed the first round of dates for their "Lay Down With Number 13" tour, which kicks off days after the vinyl release of "Wiser For The Time."
The rock outfit will first perform a handful of U.K. shows before returning stateside, kicking the domestic leg off with a two-night stand April 2-3 in Port Chester, NY. So far, 16 major markets are on the books, wrapping up with a post-Jazzfest performance May 4 in New Orleans, LA.
Tickets for the first leg go on sale Jan. 11 at the band's website, and more dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Black Crowes will unveil a live collection entitled "Wiser For The Time" March 19 via Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records. The four-album set contains 15 acoustic tracks and 11 electric songs from the group's five-night sold-out New York City performances in 2010. The effort will also be available as a double-album digital download, according to a press release.
Last month, The Black Crowes released a free mobile web app that includes a free acoustic version of "Under A Mountain," a live track that is not included on the impending release.
