Black Crowes Announce Massive 90 City Tour! Digital Giveaways!

April 17, 2008

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 & 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 & 3 at 10am (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 yeart 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

"Some of the best range and craft of the band's career." -- Alan Light of Rolling Stone

"4 Stars...A welcome return to form." Tucson Weekly

"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

"4 Stars. The Black Crowes are back, better than ever." -- Arizona Republic (Larry Rogers), March 21, 2008

"Warpaint is more energetic and focused than anything since Amorica... the 11-song set establishes the group's return as something to crow about." -- Billboard March 2008

"Some of the best range and craft of the band's career." -- Alan Light of Rolling Stone

"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

"The Black Crowes made a stinker-free live-sounding album [Warpaint] that requires — no, demands — attention from a listener." -- Detroit Metro Times, March 25, 2008

"The Black Crowes are flying again." -- Boston Herald, March 6, 2008

"'Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution,' the song that launched the Black Crowes' sizzling, sold-out show at Somerville Theatre Wednesday night, began like most good Black Crowes songs do -- with a slash and a sting in the form of a raggedly right riff from guitarist Rich Robinson that sounded at once shrugged off and indelible. His brother Chris's reedy rasp of a voice, just as raggedly right, followed him into the light of the opening verse.From there, the Crowes were in full flight: a humming phalanx of guitars, bass, drums, and keys, flexing and stretching together as one muscle, one throbbing groove." -- Boston Globe, March 7, 2008

"Warpaint is one of the group's best albums to date -- The Black Crowes reign as one of rock's most authentic practitioners." -- Relix Cover Story, February 2008

"4 and 1/2 Stars...Warpaint is an excellent example of why bands should go back to their roots instead of trying to reinvent rock music." The Ohio Post

“Album of the week. 8 out of 10…Warpaint rocks hard and is a delight to put on repeat.” – Contact Music, March 17, 2008
