The Black Crowes finally kicked off a tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of their 1990 debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, last night at Ascend Amphitheatre in Nashville after a one-year delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuesday’s concert marked the start of the group’s first extensive tour since 2013.

Frontman Chris Robinson and guitarist Rich Robinson are joined in the latest The Black Crowes lineup by longtime bassist Sven Pipien, guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, keyboardist Joel Robinow and drummer Brian Griffin. A pair of backing vocalists, Mackenzie Adams and Leslie Grant, augmented the group for portions of the show.

The Black Crowes began the night by running through a complete live performance of Shake Your Money Maker. Each of the 10 songs on the album was played in the order found on the LP. Next, the band presented the “other hits” portion.

“No Speak No Slave” came first and was one of five tracks from the band’s sophomore album, 1992’s The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion to see action on night one of two in Nashville. From there, the group delivered “Go Faster” from By Your Side and returned to The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion for “Hotel Illness” ahead of “High Head Blues” off Amorica and the evening’s lone Three Snakes And One Charm cut “Good Friday.”

The 19-song main set continued with Amorica’s “Wiser Time” and “Thorn In My Pride” and “Sting Me” from The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion. “Soul Singing,” the only song played last night from 2001’s Lions brought the frame to a close. The Black Crowes said farewell by looking to The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion for the beloved “Remedy” as the encore.
