I don't know if this is really a scheduling conflict or not, but I heard the reason that they canceled the last bunch of shows was that Chris' voice was going out on him. Apparently, he rested it and didn't smoke or drink for a month to get back on par.

On another note, Warpaint is the best f**ing album they've put out since Amorica and Luther Dickinson / Adam McDougall have clearly breathed new life into this band. In my opinion they are one of the best ROCK bands out there, right up there with My Morning Jacket, Allmans, Panic, etc. I personally thought the Atlanta show was awesome. Give Warpaint another listen... "Oh Josephine" "Movin on Down the Line" "Goodbye Daughters" and "Whoa Mule" are awesome songs.

Saw them recently and they smoked it... They've been on 2 for 2 for me, so I'm not sure what y'all complain about.

Lenox, just cause you don't "recognize the songs" don't mean the band "sucks". These guys have always and continue to kick major ass, and obviously its not the original lineup, if you want to get technical, the majority of the Crowe's life has not been the original lineup, considering that mark ford replaced Jeff Cease on guitar following the release of Shake YOur Money Maker. That being said, Luther is nasty as all get out, and Warpaint is a great album.

Warpaint is one of the best albums of the past year, hands down. The Crowes have crafted one of their finest studio releases and have the added attraction of MR. Luther Dickenson on guitar. Whats not to like?

The brothers Robinson do have their faults for sure, namely fighting with each other and a fondness for substance abuse, and the inconsistant concert is usually the result of such drama. But if you happen to see them on a night when they're diggin' each others vibes, the results are legendary.

i dont know what you guys are so negative about, i saw them twice recently at different venues and they rocked it! Luther is the man and has totally changed their sound.

me neither nitty gritty, sounds like a bunch of conksuckers thought they got a bad show because they didnt play Hard to Handle. They will probably be the loudest band to ever play The Ryman.

I've worked with these guys in like 97 & 98. Are they 'using' again? That's why they had 'bad' gigs back then...

i have a right to complain. i've bought all their records and payed to see them 4 times. the last show is going to be just that, my last. I payed 75 damn dollars and got a bunch of shitty songs, and even shittier, unrehearsed (obviously) performance! Why go see some old, rich, coked up farts play GREAT songs they wrote....20 damn years ago?!? I'm not. I can pay half of that to see kick ass bands that are still relevant and put on a much better show.

Hey people! Get it right! They're not a bunch of coke heads! They're ganja freaks who smoke a little bud and occasionally miss a date or two because they tour so much and the road fuck'in wears you out! Have you seen how many dates these fuckers are play'in? Hell they've hit more towns this year than the boys from Widespread Panic, and those fellas never leave the road! One thing's for sure...when they're on and everything is click'in, it's a kick ass show! Luther is the man and Warpaint kicks major ass! And the vibe go'in on a what ever particular venue they're play'in at, doesn't hurt either! Catch you peeps at the Ryman! Peace. jamman

North Miss smokes the Old Crows, how I wish Luther would quit and get NMA going again, I miss those guys. If you want to see masterful guitar work you gotta see Luther play with NMA. Can't blame him though the $$ must be nice.

"Fans holding tickets for the canceled October 30 show will be able to use their tickets for The Black Crowes shows on either October 27, 28 or 31 at the Hammerstein Ballroom or be issued a refund from the original place of purchase."

By logic, that would mean they've not sold many tickets to these shows... what if EVERYONE with 30th tix decides to use theirs for Friday, Halloween? Does that mean they've only sold 50% of the venue capacity to allow this? I would be pissed if I got there late Friday and they said, "Sorry, we're full."

I've never seen them live, but I'm a big fan and have really good seats for the 11/15 show in B'ham. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Yeah I've been an huge Crowes fan for years, and I have to say that even though there are some definite great songs on warpaint, overall I can't really get into it either, not like I have their past albums anyway.

Don't get me wrong I don't think its a bad album by any means, I just don't think its superfuckinfantastic like the others.
