The Black Crowes have officially ended their nearly two-year hiatus from touring, and will head out on for the “Lay Down with Number 13” tour starting in 2013. The tour will kick off in March with five dates scheduled in the UK, to be followed with a month-long tour of the U.S. The tour will kick off in Port Chester, NY to be followed by dates in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas and New Orleans. Band members Chris Robinson, Rich Robinson, Steve Gorman, Sven Pipien and Adam MacDougall will be joined by Jackie Greene on guitar and vocals.
The band has also announced the March 19th release of a new live album. Wiser for the Time contains 26 recordings from the band’s five-night, sold-out NYC performances in the fall of 2010. It will be available digitally and as a 4LP vinyl release.
