After announcing a world tour to celebrate 30 years of Shake Your Money Maker, The Black Crowes has signed to CAA for worldwide representation.
The group was previously repped by Paradigm. Mark DiDia at Red Light Management is the group’s manager.
CAA has confirmed it will represent The Black Crowes on the upcoming world tour kicking off June 17 in Austin. Of the tour, The Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson said: “I’m thrilled & blessed to be playing with my brother celebrating the music we’ve made & bringing our lives together full circle. Long live Rock n’ Roll & The Black Crowes!”
Led by Chris and Rich Robinson, The Black Crowes sold more than 35 million records and the group’s debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, went quadruple platinum after its release in 1990.
The upcoming tour, produced by Live Nation, will see the band playing the Shake Your Money Maker in its entirety “plus all the hits,” according to the announcement. The tour is called a “World Tour” which suggests international legs will be added.
The last Black Crowes tour dates were in 2013, when the ever-volatile Robinson brothers vowed to never perform again after multi-night runs at venues including the Riviera Theatre in Chicago, Terminal 5 in New York, State Theatre in Maine, and the Civic Theatre in New Orleans.
To celebrate the announcement of the tour, The Black Crowes announced two intimate shows, one at the Bowery Ballroom in New York last night and one at The Troubadour in Los Angeles Nov. 13.
