I guess it was back in March that we first shared some touring information about a brand new band by Rich Robinson who many people know about from The Black Crowes and his solo stuff. That bunch of gigs was discussed on THIS LINK in case you missed it. As the summer happenings begin to build up, I’m happy to share the news (or poster that is) that Rich and the gang have decided to extend this run. Take a look at the poster below for all the necessary details.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I am a little busy here at the Metal Media Command HQ, I’ve not the time to list the dates one by one like I would normally do in an “Upcoming Tour” posting. I also am working off of the information broadcast by a competing website and not off of an official press release so we must ask you to get by with the poster alone. It’s pretty clear enough IMHO but it looks like we fans in the NYC side of things need to wait some more as there are NO dates for our music loving metropolis. It makes me wonder if we can count on a Beacon Theatre residency being planned since I vaguely recall The Black Crowes doing three or four nights in a row there. Unless I am wrong and if I am, then why not start the process with TMS. Ever since The Allman Brothers stopped their own touring residency here there has been a bit of a void in this kind of group coming in for a long stint. We do have Tedeschi Trucks Band of course but let’s keep it going forward. What do you readers in the areas where this has been extended to think about the tour. Let me know down in the comments below.
The Press Release:
The excitement for THE MAGPIE SALUTE continues to grow.
First it was four back-to-back sold-out shows at the Gramercy Theatre in New York this past January. Then came the announcement of their debut in London where the group will perform four concerts at Under The Bridge (April 12-15), with the first show selling out shortly within an hour of the tickets going on pre-sale. This news was followed by the announcement of shows in Chicago (July), San Francisco (September), Boston (August), Atlanta (August) and Los Angeles (September).
And now comes the news of THE MAGPIE SALUTE’s first-ever national headline tour–starting July 26 in Indianapolis–which will include appearances at festivals (itinerary below). For more information and to purchase tickets, visit: http://themagpiesalute.com/events
THE MAGPIE SALUTE is an exciting new band that features musicians who have played together for decades throughout various projects and share a musical bond. The band brings Rich Robinson, the guitarist and co-founding member of The Black Crowes, together with two key members of Crowes fame–guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien–alongside drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. THE MAGPIE SALUTE also boasts a fine cast of vocalists, including lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), former Crowes singer Charity White and background singers, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen. THE MAGPIE SALUTE marks the reunion of the Robinson and Ford guitar team (Ford left The Black Crowes after their fourth album and 1997 Further Festival tour). “…it was clear from the get-go that Ford and Robinson still have unmistakable synergy,” noted GLIDE MAGAZINE(1/24/17).
