Black Crowes Indefinite Hiatus Acoustic Album & Tour


The Black Crowes
In celebration of the 20th year anniversary of their 1990 debut multi-platinum release Shake Your Money Maker, The Black Crowes will release their first ever double album of all acoustic material on August 3, 2010.

After touring in 2009, The Black Crowes spent time at the Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles, recording over 20 songs from their 20-year history. The band arranged acoustic versions of many of their best-loved songs and the band's catalogue picks.

The double album, Croweology, will be sold at the cost of a single album as a "Thank You" to their fans for 20 years of support. Also to be released on vinyl, the project was produced by Paul Stacey and will be released on The Black Crowes label, Silver Arrow, through Megaforce Records.

In late summer, The Black Crowes will kick off their "Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys" 2010 Tour, which will feature three hour performance sets in most markets. The shows are being billed as "Acoustic Hors D'oeuvres followed by an Electric Reception with The Black Crowes," and will consist of a full hour and a half acoustic set followed by a full hour and a half electric set, except where noted below *. (See the "tour dates" section at for further details and on-sale dates.)

The tour will begin on August 13 in Milwaukee and is presently scheduled to conclude with the band's annual multi-night stand at the Fillmore in San Francisco on December 19, 2010.

Following their 2010 "Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys" Tour the band has planned a lengthy hiatus.

Chris Robinson had this to say, "With a smile so wide you can count my teeth and with a heart so full of love that it is spilling over the rim, I offer a humble and simple thank you. Thank you for your time, your imaginations, your heartaches and joy. Thank you for 20 years of cosmic rock n roll. 20 years of keeping it weird. 20 years of chasing horizons and before the band that dares dream out loud puts it down for a while, we are proud to give you our Croweology. This year the music is only for you as we celebrate what has been, what is now and whatever will be."

Rich Robinson said, "At this milestone in our career, I feel very fortunate that I have had the opportunity to spend my life making music. It's been 20 years since we started out on this journey. I would like to extend my deep gratitude to all of our fans who have been there with us along the way. We would not have gotten here without your support. Every night I stand on the stage I feel great pride and respect for what we share with our fans. After this tour we are going to take some much needed time to spend with our families. But for now, we are very much looking forward to a great year of touring. I look forward to seeing all your familiar faces again on the road. See you soon."

The Black Crowes are: Chris Robinson, Rich Robinson, Steve Gorman, Sven Pipien, Luther Dickinson, Adam MacDougall.
