The Black Crowes are sort of like America’s answer to Oasis or the Kinks, a band of brothers whose constant feuding led to a nasty breakup and made it seem likely we’d never see them perform live again.

Well, “never” is actually a pretty long time. Which is part of the reason why after just five years apart, Chris and Rich Robinson have decided to reunite the Black Crowes next summer.

The modern Southern rock heroes have announced a 2020 reunion tour that’ll hit Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on July 1, according to Ticketmaster. Tickets start at $29 and went on sale today. Click here for details.

The tour coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band’s debut Shake Your Money Maker, which featured the hits Hard to Handle and She Talks to Angels. They’ll play that album in its entirety next summer, along with other hits including Remedy and Kickin’ My Heart Around.

Since officially splitting in 2015 — their last gig together was actually in 2013 — singer Chris Robinson has helmed a couple of different projects, including the jammy Chris Robinson Brotherhood and As the Crow Flies, in which he sang the music of the Black Crowes. Guitarist Rich Robinson started the Magpie Salute and released solo music.

Will their detente last long enough to see them come to Tampa next summer? We’ll see!
