After months of speculation, The Black Crowes will make a triumphant return to the live concert stage with five special shows--billed by brothers Chris and Rich Robinson as “All Join Hands”--at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom beginning March 22. These concerts mark the first shows by The Most Rock ‘N Roll Rock ‘N Roll Band In The World since October 31, 2001.The Black Crowes are one of the bands that I really regret never seeing live. I've got a few Chris Robinson and the New Earth Mud shows in my live stash and it is pretty good stuff. It seems like any hope for the Black Crowes getting back together on a permanent basis are contingent on this NYC run. I hope things go well enough for the Crowes to find their way down to Texas.
