Yesterday it was revealed that The Black Crowes (opens in new tab) would reunite for a 2020 North American tour (opens in new tab).
Chris Robinson (opens in new tab) and Rich Robinson (opens in new tab) will play 45-dates across the US and Canada throughout next summer – with the news coming after weeks of speculation that a reunion was imminent.
And last night, the brothers hooked up for their first show together since 2013 when they appeared at New York’s Bowery Ballroom to play their 1990 debut album Shake Your Money Maker in full.
After playing the 10-track record they performed a cover of the Rolling Stones classic It’s Only Rock N’ Roll.
Fan-filmed footage from the evening has now appeared online and can be watched below.
While Chris and Rich have put their differences aside, fans were wondering if the reunion would see the brothers joined by any former members of The Black Crowes – however, that turned out not to be the case.
Instead, the lineup was completed by Earthless guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, bassist Tim Lefebvre, who’s played with artists including David Bowie (opens in new tab) and Tedeschi Trucks Band (opens in new tab), drummer Ojha and keyboardist Joel Robinow.
Asked by Rolling Stone if there had been any talk of inviting past members to rejoin the band, Chris said: "No. That was the first thing Rich and I agree on – we don’t want anyone from the solo groups. We don’t want anyone from the past.”
The Black Crowes’ next gig will be at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on Thursday night.
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.
