Last month, rumours began to build suggesting The Black Crowes were about to reform for a run of live shows.

The speculation was sparked when their former manager Pete Angelus said he was was aware of a deal that brothers Chris Robinson and Rich Robinson “made with Live Nation for a 2020 tour,” although at the time, Live Nation told the site they didn’t have “any intel.”

Now the brothers have confirmed to Howard Stern that they will indeed be bringing the band back together for a run of 45 North American shows next year.

The dates will get underway at the Austin 360 Amphitheatre on June 17 and wrap up with a set at The Forum in Los Angeles on September 19.

The Black Crowes will play their 1990 debut album Shake Your Money Maker in full to mark its 30th anniversary, along with a selection of other favourites.

Although Chris and Rich have been confirmed in the lineup, there’s no word who else will be joining them.

Tickets for the show are available through The Black Crowes’ official website, while a full list of dates can be found below.

Last week, posters showing the band’s logo began to appear on billboards in the US suggesting an announcement was imminent.

It’s also bee revealed that a 5CD box set titled The Broadcast Collection will be released on November 22 through Soundstage. It’ll feature live performances from The Black Crowes that were recorded in Atlantic City, San Jose, Los Angeles and Houston between 1990 and 1993.
