THE BLACK CROWES CONFIRM FALL TOUR
AS ROBINSON AND HUDSON BREAK UP
Seems like Chris Robinson just can't keep things on the sunny side. After recently patching things up with brother Rich Robinson and getting their band, The Black Crowes back together, Chris is separating from his wife. That's right, movie star Kate Hudson (27) and rock star Chris Robinson (39) have called it quits after six years of marriage. The Hollywood couple tied the knot on New Year's Eve 2000 and have a two-year-old son, Ryder Russell.

But like they say, the show must go on!
Kicking off September 7 in Richmond, VA, the new leg of dates will be highlighted by the band's October 28 performance at the second Vegoose festival in Las Vegas at Sam Boyd Stadium and wraps up November 12 at the Love Ride in Castaic, CA.
Since reuniting and re-connecting with their loyal fans last year, THE BLACK CROWES have been performing what some called "the best shows of their career." While they achieved a career watermark by headlining their New Year's Eve show at Madison Square Garden, the band—Chris Robinson (vocals), Rich Robinson (guitars), Marc Ford (guitars), Eddie Hawrysch (keyboards), Sven Pipien (bass) and Steve Gorman (drums)--also played seven sold-out shows at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom, performed five-nights at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles and were headliners at three of the most prestigious festivals in America (New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo, and Austin City Limits Festival). Summing up the allure of THE BLACK CROWES' concert experience, Mikael Wood of The Village Voice (12/28/05) said the band "remain one of rock's best live acts, as hard-grooving as during their heyday and caked with an extra layer of rambling-man soulfulness."
