It will take another year for brothers Chris Robinson and Rich Robinson to start the Black Crowes reunion tour. Since all mass gathering events all over the world can’t happen in 2020 due to Covid-19, the band had to postpone their return to 2021.
In an official statement, Black Crowes said about the tour postponement:
“While Chris, Rich and the band were so excited to play for you all this summer, the North American Shake Your Money Maker 30th Anniversary tour dates are being rescheduled to 2021 in the interest of everyone’s health and safety. Hold on to your tickets as they will be honored at the new show dates. Keep an eye on this space and www.theblackcrowes.com for more information, to be announced soon. The whole band and crew can’t wait to get back on the road as soon as its safe. Much love #TBC 🖤”
The Black Crowes “reunion” (since the only original members are the brothers currently) made two concerts November 2019 in West Hollywood, California. They are accompanied by the musicians: Isaiah Mitchell (Guitar), Tim Lefebvre (Bass), Joel Robinow (Keyboards) and Raj Ojha (Drums).
About the reunion, frontman Chris Robinson said last year:
“I’m thrilled and blessed to be playing with my brother celebrating the music we’ve made. Also bringing our lives together full circle. Long live rock n’ roll & the Black Crowes!”
Rich Robinson stated:
“First and foremost, I’m really happy to have my brother back in my life. To be able to play music again together and celebrate the first record we made as kids, is a gift. To have these songs stand up after 30 years is something I could’ve never fathomed.”
Chris apologized to his brother
“I said some horrible things. I was in a negative place, but you know what, I’ve apologized to Rich about that. A lot of things have changed for me in the last two years. I was in a relationship that was failing. And I was in a negative place. I was dealing with depression. And I’m sitting over here, like, ‘Why am I saying bad things about my brother?’”
