The Black Crowes have revealed that they're planning to go on hiatus after they wrap up their 2013 Lay Down with Number 13 tour, which wraps up December 14 in San Francisco. The band's members are planning to spend 2014 focusing on various solo projects.
Meanwhile, The Crowes have just added two series of special October performances in the New York City area to their expansive itinerary. The band will play four-night stands at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, and at Terminal 5 in the Big Apple. The Capitol Theatre concerts will take place on October 18, 19, 21 and 22, and will be all-acoustic shows, while The Crowes will plug in for the Terminal 5 gigs, which are scheduled for October 24, 26, 27 and 29. Special guests are expected to appear at all the Port Chester and New York City concerts.
The Black Crowes just wrapped up a summer amphitheater trek with the Tedeschi Trucks Band , and this Sunday they'll be performing at The Allman Brothers Band 's second annual Peach Music Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The band then will take a brief break before returning to the road on September 5 in Cooperstown, New York.
"This year in The Black Crowes has reaffirmed my belief in the power of music & the power of love," says frontman Chris Robinson about his group's busy tour schedule. "Can't wait to see what the future holds, long live rock & roll!"
Guitarist/singer Rich Robinson adds, "The tour this year has been incredibly positive. From our own shows, and into the Tedeschi Trucks tour where we found our musical soul mates. Really great vibes all around."
