Report: Black Crowes to Play Entire ‘Shake Your Money Maker’ Album on 2020 Reunion Tour
Reports are surfacing that '90s rockers The Black Crowes will be reuniting for a 2020 tour, performing their classic 1990 debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, in its entirety.
It's the latest in a wave of big time rock reunions as My Chemical Romance and Rage Against the Machine announced their return just over a week ago. The rumors had been swirling recently that the blues rock outfit would be making their way back to the stage and now some more evidence has suggested these rumors are indeed true.
Dirty Rock Magazine shared an image on Twitter, which depicted a promotional show flyer a pair of summer performances from The Black Crowes. The advertisement lists two performance dates — July 17 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey and July 18 at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York — and can be seen below.
While the advertisement appears official, it is important to note that no confirmation on these dates, or the reunion in general, has come from the band. The Black Crowes, however, have loosely suggested that some activity is planned as their Facebook page is essentially a blank slate, with a newly uploaded profile and banner image that came right after midnight on Oct. 28.
The Black Crowes have not performed together since February of 2014 and officially disbanded for the second time in 2015 after enjoying a 2012 reunion. Of their eight studio albums, Shake Your Money maker remains the biggest seller and has been certified five times platinum by the RIAA.
