The Black Crowes bring their timeless rock and roll circus to The Met Philly - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Tuesday evening at The Met in Philadelphia, rock legends The Black Crowes brought out a crowd of life-long fans that were on their feet, dancing, and singing along to all their favorite songs from their younger days. They also showcased, Happiness Batards, their ninth album and first in 11 years, which was released this past March. Chris Robinson’s voice was still sharp, and Rich Robinson’s riffs were on point. It was a killer show. 

The staging was perfect for The Met, as it looked like a theater show (or even a circus) set up with string lights, a wall of amps, a curtain banner, and a huge mirror center stage, which allowed Chris to turn his back to the audience and still see everyone’s reflection glancing towards him.

Brothers Chris and Rich Robinson started The Black Crowes 40 years ago in the basement of their family home, which Chris referred to as “when the dream began,” and at The Met, they talked about how the dream continues every night they come out on stage. If you missed the show, you can still check them out tonight at NON-COMM at World Cafe Live (or video webcasting here at and on tour with Aerosmith at Wells Fargo September 23rd (tickets and info at the WXPN Concert Calendar).
