Black Crowes Reunion Now A Full-Blown Tour

Guitarist Marc Ford returns to the lineup for 31-date run.

What started out as a handful of getting-to-know-you (again) dates, has grown into a full-blown reunion tour for Southern rockers the Black Crowes.

Brothers Chris and Rich Robinson will take the stage with a number of old bandmates and a few new faces for their first shows since October 2001. Following a previously announced sold-out seven-night residency at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom in March (see “Black Crowes To Reunite — For Five Shows, At Least” ), the band will play 24 headlining shows and festivals through a June 11 date at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, with more shows expected to follow, according to a spokesperson for the group.

In addition to the battling Robinsons, the band will feature guitarist Marc Ford, who left the group in 1997, longtime keyboard player Eddie Harsch and bassist Sven Pipien, who split in 2000. Bill Dobrow, a former member of Rich Robinson’s side group Hookah Brown, will replace former Crowes drummer Steve Gorman.
