Black Crowes announce 2013 tour dates, live album

THE BLACK CROWES will return to the road in 2013 with their “Lay Down With Number 13” world tour. The first leg will encompass dates in the U.K. March 24-30 and the U.S. April 2-May 4. Tickets for this first leg go on sale January 11 at 10:13 AM Local Time and ticket link information will be available on January 1 at www.blackcrowes.com. Additional dates will be announced soon.

The band has also announced the March 19 vinyl release of the live WISER FOR THE TIME (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records). Its eight sides will contain 26 songs–15 acoustic and 11 electric–from the band’s five-night, sold-out NYC performances in the fall of 2010. These never-released-before versions will also be available as a double album digital download.

Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Rich Robinson (guitar, vocals), Steve Gorman (drums), Sven Pipien (bass) and Adam Macdougall (keyboards) of THE BLACK CROWES “are thrilled to announce the addition of our good friend Jackie Greene” on guitar and vocals.

The band is offering via their website a free mobile web app. It includes a free download of the acoustic version of “Under a Mountain” performed live in NYC in 2010. This offering is exclusive and not included on WISER FOR THE TIME.

The first leg of the “Lay Down With Number 13” tour begins March 24 in Manchester in the U.K. and will run through May 4 in New Orleans.
