    Agreed, Jackie Green is a great player but he was my least favorite Crowes guitarist, and I have seen them all. Isiah Mitchell is a superb player and I am definitely looking forward to hearing him play with the Robinson’s. Check out Earthless , check out Urulu Rock

    Eh, it's better than disparaging an entire fanbase, particularly one that is surprisingly well represented on this very forum.

    They weren't playing jam heavy shows with Jackie Greene in 2013. That tour was a disgrace from the outset, marginally better at the end.

    A nadir in Crowes time.

    Agree to disagree. I saw the Greene lineup twice, the semi acoustic tour and then toward the end. Very strong both times.

    For what it's worth, I saw the Crowes thrice in '13 - once at a festival early in the tour (June), very pedestrian, greatest-hits set, and then two shows towards the end, one in L.A. in late November and then the final show in San Francisco in mid-December. The L.A. show was actually pretty decent, I think the venue (Wiltern Theater) being good helped a lot; the final show again seemed pretty mailed in, Chris seemed pretty checked out (and if you believe Steve's book, he was), though the venue was a pretty lame one (Bill Graham Civic).

    I'm just glad I made it to the L.A. show, that's kind of my nice, last live Crowes memory of about 40-50 shows.

    Does Steve’s book pull back the curtain, on Chris’s pseudo hippie shtick and expose it for what it is, insincere and fraudulent?

    I for one love the Crowes as a rock n roll band but as a Grateful Dead tribute act, if I want the GD I’ll go to the source.

    I just looked at every major market on the tour through the ticket outlets and they’re not doing too bad sales wise.

    You throw in a band like Blackberry Smoke (who I know little about as a listener) but know they sell tickets and you could pull a varied crossover audience and fill the holes in the venues.

    What shows with Greene were semi acoustic? I haven't heard those.

    No, they really only jammed out one or two songs a show on that tour. Usually just Wiser Time.

    Shows were almost all around the 2 hour range.

    No hatin but I saw the Crowes twice at their "peak" sans Page and found them extremely boring..

    Can only imagine how "exciting" they will be as a duo with hired guns..

    Were there a few cities where they played several nights and worked more acoustic stuff in? San Fran and NYC are ringing a bell. Only time I totally remember was the tour that followed Croweology with Luther that were split pretty even between acoustic and electric.

    They always had some that got extended a few minutes like Black Moon and Soul Singin and then ones like Wiser Time and Thorn In My Pride that got jammed and had accompanying pieces, that could take up half a set.

    I was shopping in Trader Joes and they played Hard To Handle. I haven't heard that song in public in years.

    Sorry-- It was probably still Luther at that point, which means I saw the Greene lineup only once. I will say that the latter show had one of my favorite covers I ever saw them do, "Lover of the Bayou."

    Noticed that they aren't on the Peachfest lineup.

    I assumed they'd be on that.

    Doesn't seem to be any festival dates at all, does it?

    Considering the size of the venues they’re playing, I can’t see the motivation for festival promoters to book ‘em.

    Surprising, but also not. LiveNation doesn’t make as much money off the Crowes playing festivals instead of LN-owned venues, and the festival radius clauses probably interfere with a lot of the dates. Backs up my belief this is a very short term plan: do these dates, cash out, and go back to not speaking to each other.

    I think that the Alanis / Garbage / Liz Phair tour is going to sell Hootie levels instead of this one. Lots of people I know in their 30s and 40s are planning on buying tix for that show, but have no interest in this one.
