The Black Crowes are back together and coming to the Xcel

The Black Crowes

The Black Crowes

In 2013, brothers Chris and Rich Robinson vowed to never speak to each other again—or play another show together.

Fortunately for their fans, the southern rock sibs have relented. After a pair of shows on the coasts later this month, the Robinsons, back in business as the Black Crowes, will kick off a full tour next June in Austin—and come to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on August 13.

The reunion coincides with the 30th anniversary of Shake Your Money Maker, which the band will play from start to finish. Tickets are on sale now online at Ticketmaster and at the Xcel box office and start at $32, a price that’s not too hard to handle. (The joke there is, “Hard to Handle” is the name of one of the band’s hits. Just a little humor to help you through your Monday.)

Aside from the Robinsons, the Black Crowes now consist of guitarist Isiah Mitchell of psych-rock band Earthless, veteran session bassist Tim LeFebvre (he played on Bowie’s Blackstar), and two members of the psych/proggroup Once and Future Band: keyboardist Joel Robinow and drummer Ojha.

A “money maker,” incidentally, is a butt.
