Event Description:

Chris Robinson has songs he wants to sing. As frontman for The Black Crowes—one of the most prolific and celebrated rock ’n’ roll bands of its generation—he co-wrote classics like “Jealous Again,” “Remedy,” “She Talks To Angels,” “Twice As Hard” and “Sometimes Salvation." With a desire to breathe new life into this storied repertoire, Robinson has gathered five musicians whose musical journeys intertwine with The Black Crowes, including guitarists Marcus King and Audley Freed, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Andy Hess and drummer Tony Leone. Appropriately calling the band, As The Crow Flies, they’ll perform shows consisting of music from throughout Robinson’s history at a handful of select U.S. dates in Spring 2018, while in-between tours with his primary outfit, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood. 

“Spring will be sprung and the songs will be sung. This crow will fly high with old friends and new. Bring on, bring on! I can’t wait to hit the stage with some rock 'n' roll for the ages,” says Robinson. “It’s been five years since I’ve had the privilege of singing these songs and with Audley Freed, Marcus King, Andy Hess, Adam McDougall and Tony Leone all onboard, a soulful rockin’ funky good time is guaranteed!”

As The Crow Flies’ 17-date tour kicks-off at the legendary Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on April 17 before quickly cutting south, including performances at Wanee Music Festival in Live Oak, FL, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and The Joy Theater in New Orleans for a performance during the city’s celebrated Jazz & Heritage Festival. The band then heads West, including stops at The Ogden Theatre in Denver, The Wiltern in Los Angeles and The Fox in Oakland before concluding on May 13 at Crystal Ballroom in Portland.

Robinson and company will perform music from The Black Crowes on Tuesday, May 2nd at The Truman.
