THE BLACK CROWES ANNOUNCE 90 CITY TOUR!
SPECIAL “MIDNIGHT PRE-SALES” WITH FREE DOWNLOADS!

The Black Crowes announce a tour that will kick off on June 28 and conclude with a five night run at The Fillmore in San Francisco on Chris Robinson’s birthday, December 20.

The 90-city tour follows the success of their seven special “One Night Only” shows which featured their hit album WARPAINT, performed in its entirety. All of these special shows sold out instantly and were followed by shows in London and Amsterdam.

This six month itinerary will take them across the USA and Canada performing songs from WARPAINT, the band’s first studio album in seven years, and favorites from their catalog as well as surprises.

One highlight of the tour will be two special evenings featuring all acoustic performances by The Black Crowes at the famed Town Hall in New York City on November 3 and 4. These shows will mark the first ever all acoustic performances in America in their eighteen year career. Tickets for the majority of the first leg shows will go on sale starting May 2 and 3 at 10 a.m. (EST).

Special “Midnight Pre-Sales” will be available at http://www.blackcrowes.com. A limited number of prime seats in each venue have been set aside by the band for fans and will go on sale at MIDNIGHT (EST), the Friday one week before the public on-sales. Fans who purchase “Midnight Pre-Sale” tickets will receive free downloads of unreleased live material.

Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes had this to say of their 2008 tour announcement: “Set your mind to fly… come join the jubilee.”

Their “Euphoria Or Bust” Tour follows the release of the band’s new album WARPAINT, which debuted earlier this year at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200, #1 on Billboard’s Digital Chart, #2 on the Indie Chart, as well as # 2 on iTunes.com.

The WARPAINT album and recent live shows have received some of the best reviews in the band’s 18 year career:

“Eleven tracks of brawny Southern rock and psychedelic R & B ecstasy.” -David Fricke of Rolling Stone

“4 Stars… Stripping back to the bare essentials, Chris finds peace and clarity through some of his finest, most poetic storytelling.” -Paste Magazine April 2008

“Warpaint reasserts the band as a rock powerhouse… These ten brand-new originals and a gospel-baked cover of ‘God’s Got It’ remind us of everything we love about the band.” -Harp Magazine, April 2008
