(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Black Crowes will be making their first return to the UK concert stage since ending their 4 year hiatus with a high-profile reunion in March of this year. They plan to perform two shows at the London Shepherds Bush Empire on March 18th and 19th, 2006.
Longtime manager Pete Angelus said in a statement that these are the only confirmed shows so far, and no future touring plans or dates have been confirmed.
“At this point in time, we have not discussed any future international touring plans. It has always been our intention to gauge the future of the band, not by the memories and successes of the past, but rather by the group’s collective feelings of the present,” he said.
The Crowes’ return in 2005 has been highlighted by a seven night sold-out run in New York City, a massive American summer shed tour with Tom Petty, five sold-out nights at the Fillmore in San Francisco, a charity show for victims of Hurricane Katrina in Memphis, and performances at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo, and the Austin City Limits Festival.
They will also be performing at Madison Square Garden in New York City on New Year’s Eve.
Tickets for the U.K. engagements go on sale Monday, November 11th for £30 each. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
