Georgia rockers The
Black Crowes were supposed to play a show at Iron City in Birmingham, AL last night.
Unfortunately, a family emergency led to a postponement of the performance, which is now
scheduled to take place this evening. However, the Crowes already had a show scheduled for
tonight in Fayetteville, AR and that performance has been cancelled out right.
Those holding tickets for the show that was supposed to take place last night can either
use their tickets for tonight or obtain a refund. Fayetteville ticket holders can get
their money back at the place they purchased their tickets.
Here's the statement from The Black Crowes about the cancellation/postponement:
Birmingham Statement – 09/10/2013 – Birmingham, AL – Iron City
Due to a family emergency in Atlanta, tonight’s sold-out show with The Black Crowes at
Iron City in Birmingham is cancelled. Attempts are being made to re-schedule the show with
the same times & details to tomorrow night, Wednesday, September 11. All tickets
for tonight’s September 10 show will be honored for tomorrow night. Full refunds at place
of purchase will be available for anyone who is unable to attend the rescheduled date. We
regret any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
Fayetteville Statement – 09/11/2013 – Fayetteville, AR – Walton Arts Center
Due to a family emergency back in the band’s home town of Atlanta, The Black Crowes
show scheduled to take place tomorrow night in Fayetteville at the Walton Arts Center,
must regretfully be cancelled. Although best efforts have been explored to re-schedule,
based on the band’s current schedule, there are no dates available at this time.
Therefore, this is being treated as a cancellation as opposed to a postponement. All
tickets can be refunded in full at place of purpose. We regret any inconvenience this may
cause and thank you for your understanding.
According to the Iron City website, the Crowes will
indeed perform tonight in Birmingham.
UPDATE 9/11 Noon PT: We're sad to report that Stan Robinson, the father of Chris & Rich
Robinson of The Black Crowes passed away yesterday. A note on the Crowes Facebook Page
reads, "We sadly bid a final farewell to our loving father, Stan Robinson. The man who
lived his entire life in Atlanta, GA left this earthly realm Tuesday afternoon on wings of
pure love and with his sons by his side. We love you Dad."
It appears tonight's show will go on as planned and we bet it will be an emotional
