As fans count down the days until The Black Crowes return from its hiatus later this month, the band has added another leg of U.S. dates in May, as well as a round of European gigs in June and July.
Along with the launch of the “Lay Down With Number 13” tour, March is also the month for the release of The Black Crowes’ upcoming live collection. Wiser For The Time is due out March 19 on Silver Aarow/Megaforce Records. This week the band premiered a track from the album – its cover of Bob Dylan’s classic tune “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You.”
“The Black Crowes have always covered a lot of Bob’s song,” frontman Chris Robinson said. “The songs I feel like singing of his are always my favorites. In my mind, this great tapestry of music we are involved in cannot be weaved without sharing Bob’s mighty threads!”
