Great show,
Unbelievable howlin wolf cover of 44 blues, Luther is the new blood that they need. The crowes are still alive and well, great energy and jams

The Atlanta show was stellar. I'm surprised some people didn't care for the set list, of course I think their new album is their best one yet so I was pretty happy, and you can't beat The Night They Drove Ole Dixie Down as an encore. Also Chris came out and sang and played guitar on Sugaree with Phil Lesh and Friends and it was like a 10 minute plus rave up. Hope to see everyone at the shows in Charlotte and Raleigh in November!

My first time seeing Black Crowes in 17+ years. The band
members look a lil' bit older, but the music is still hot(LOL).
I must admit now that it’s my loss that I've not been keeping up with their music. After seeing them play this show I realize I’ve been missing out on a brilliant band. I’m not usually impressed by many of the big concerts I see nowadays, but this was some seriously fine rock n roll. My only regret is that I accidentally drank too many beers and therefore don’t remember every song as clearly as I’d prefer. I didn't even mind NOT hearing She Talks to Angels. I will definitely have to catch another show soon… I especially LOVED Thorn in my Pride (was it really over 20 minutes?). Also loved Sugaree, which Chris sang with Phil Lesh. Sweet! My 5th row/Pit seats were well worth the $$$ I paid. thanks guys........ lookin good :-) xo michelle n bridget

I've seen the crowes many times and have to say that this was their best show yet. Luther is the shit....he's bringing on a whole new level to their already great songs. Can't wait to see them again.

This was our 23rd Crowes show and it was an incredible show, regardless on what the first guy thought. The boys were in perfect form after taking a few weeks off for Chris' laryngitis and couldn't have sounded better. Highlights of the show, for me, we're the whole Wee Who See The Deep into Thorn In My Pride jam, Quinn The Eskimo and Lay It All On Me....with Lay It All On Me probably being my favorite. Awesome show! Can't wait to see them in Charlotte next month!

Definitely not the best song selection, but some of the jams are incredible and Chris's voice is perfect. Luther was on fire and of course Rich was as well. ALSO, and this is a big plus, the sound is so much better on this FLAC download than on the previous ones I've grabbed... which is kind of what I expect it should be when I'm paying $15!

Regardless of what the person before me thought this was one of the best shows and I have seen them over 30 times. It is true they do not play all their greatest hits, but if you are a lover of music you will understand why. There was an energy they did not have when I saw them soon after transitioning from Ford to Luther.

Their new album is incredible

To say this show, in their hometown to boot, was a disappointment would be an understatement. Luther has to be thinking to himself, " What is this? I am here to rock. Not bring back the folk scene." The song with Gorman on the bass drum was a complete waste of time and chemicals. They did sound good and the venue was really nice, but the song selection, and their lack of vibe was disappointing. New Mudd Earth might have been better.

Just my 2 cents...
