The Black Crowes have both confirmed their final tour plans for 2013 and revealed that they will focus on solo projects in 2014. In addition to their concerts running from September 5-December 13, the band have announced all-acoustic shows October 18, 19, 21 and 22 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY and electric shows October 24, 26, 27 and 29 at New York City’s Terminal 5. Their extended 2013 tour will close with a performance at San Francisco, CA’s the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on December 14. The Port Chester, New York City and San Francisco performances will all feature very special guests. Tickets for the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY and Terminal 5 in NYC go on sale Friday, August 23 at 12pm local time. Tickets for Bill Graham Civic Auditorium go on sale Sunday, September 8 at 10am local time.

A statement from the band reads, “The band have confirmed that after these concerts, The Black Crowes have no future plans for touring, as band members will focus in 2014 on solo releases and projects.” The group took most of 2011 and all of 2012 off to focus on their solo bands. They reunited in early 2013 with Jackie Greene on guitar and have toured the world throughout the year.

The band’s three remaining founding members have each released statements. Lead singer Chris Robinson says, “This year in The Black Crowes has re-affirmed my belief in the power of music & the power of love. Can’t wait to see what the future holds, long live rock & roll!”

His brother, guitarist Rich Robinson adds, “The tour this year has been incredibly positive. From our own shows, and into the Tedeschi Trucks tour where we found our musical soul mates. Really great vibes all around. I’m looking forward to the fall for some great shows.”

Drummer Steve Gorman concludes by saying, “The tour this year has been a great run, and we’re looking forward to the fall dates in a lot of our favorite towns. The turnout and response from the fans has been overwhelming. After 23 years of doing all we could to kill this beast—and I mean we really threw everything we had at it but just couldn’t get it to die—I think it’s obvious that the best course of action is to enjoy it as much as we can.”
