Before going on 'lengthy hiatus,' Black Crowes to play House of Blues in Orlando


Hope you enjoyed the Black Crowes last October at Ruth Eckerd Hall, Tampa Bay fans. Because that might be the last you'll see of them for a while.

The Brothers Robinson have been fleshing out the details of a fall tour, and while they're not calling it a farewell trek, they did say in a statement that when it ends in December, the band "will go on a lengthy hiatus to catch their collective breaths and spend time with their families."

Unfortunately, the Crowes aren't coming to Tampa Bay. But Central Florida fans will get to see them one more time, as the band will perform Sept. 22 at the House of Blues at Orlando's Downtown Disney. Tickets are $36.50. Click here for details.

The tour will follow the Aug. 3 release of Croweology, a double-album of acoustic reworkings of their back catalog that'll be priced the same as a single disc. The tour is expected to consist of two 90-minute sets, one acoustic and one electric. 

Don't believe for a second that Croweology means goodbye, though. "To me, 'hiatus' means there is no plan," guitarist Rich Robinson told Rolling Stone. "We haven't said, 'Let's get back together in 2012.' And we haven't said, 'Let's not.'"

Translation: The Black Crowes will be back in Tampa in 2012! Just like Dave Matthews Band!
