Another awesome performance by The Black Crowes, probably my 4th or 5th favorite band of all time. This tour was in support of the album Before The Frost…Until The Freeze with opening act Truth & Salvage Co. My good friend Drocha joined me all the way from Orlando for this show and we had a blast! The set list can be found HERE
So you may be wondering how can this be only my 2nd time seeing The Black Crowes? Yeah, I asked myself the same thing and went digging and realized they were on hiatus from2002-2005 and this was the first tour once they returned. This was the All Join Hands tour, which was filmed and released as a live CD/DVD combo in 2006 as Freak ‘n’ Roll…Into The Fog. I went to this concert with Nina, but I can’t seem to dig up any information about opening bands. These guys are by far my favorite non-metal/hard rock band and have been for many years. They went on hiatus again in 2011, but that is a different post coming at a later date.
The Black Crowes are one of my favorite non-metal bands, period. They are always phenomenal live! This was during the Amorica Or Bust tour following the Amorica album, my personal favorite Crowes album. The Crowes have always encouraged the fans to record their shows and I was able to record this concert and still have the tape. It may sound like crap, but having a copy of the show you yourself were at? Color me geeked out. The opening band was the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Mary went to the show with me. It was the first of many times I would see the Crowes live and every single one of them were great.
