The Black Crowes reschedule UK and Ireland tour to 2022
The Georgia rock titans will now celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album, ‘Shake Your Money Maker’, next autumn
The Black Crowes have rescheduled their upcoming UK and Ireland tour for a second time due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The ‘Shake Your Money Maker’ tour, which is currently travelling across the US, celebrates 30 years of the Georgia rock band’s – now comprised of brothers Rich and Chris Robinson, and Sven Pipien – debut album.
Having previously postponed the shows to autumn this year, the band have now announced they’ve had to move the tour again. The Black Crowes will now head to Dublin’s 3Arena, the O2 Apollo in Manchester and the O2 Academy Brixton in London in September 2022.
The band’s European dates will follow and run until October 19, when they’ll wrap things up in Lisbon, Portugal.
“UK and Europe: due to the continuing uncertainty associated with international touring, the Shake Your Money Maker Tour is being re-scheduled to 2022,” the band said in a statement on Instagram. Tickets will be honoured at the new dates and ticket holders will soon receive emails with more information.

Last month, The Black Crowes announced a new film celebrating their 2020 reunion – you can watch the trailer for Brothers Of A Feather here.
Joining forces with The Coda Collection, the film will celebrate the reunion of the Robinson brothers as well as three concert and studio performance programs which shine a light on the band at their peak.
The Black Crowes initially split up in 2015 due to a disagreement between guitarist Rich and frontman Chris.
In a statement at the time of the band’s disbandment, Rich said he could not abide his brother’s “demand that I must give up my equal share of the band and that our drummer for 28 years and original partner, Steve Gorman, relinquish 100 per cent of his share, reducing him to a salaried employee”.
Chris later responded to his brother’s claims, saying the circumstances that led to the band breaking up were “way more complicated than Rich’s public outburst”.
Meanwhile, former Black Crowes guitarist Marc Ford has revealed that he was asked to join Guns N’ Roses on two different occasions.
Speaking in a recent interview, Ford discussed being asked to join the band after Izzy Stradlin abruptly left in 1991, and again in the early 2000s when frontman Axl Rose was looking to retool the GnR lineup.
