THE BLACK CROWES have today announced support acts for all headline shows on their 2022 Shake Your Money Maker Australian tour. Full Flower Moon Band will open in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, with You Am I also supporting at Melbourne’s massive Palace Foreshore event on Sunday, November 20.
Centred around the prolific songwriting skills of singer/guitarist Tim Rogers, You Am I is without doubt one of Australia’s all-time essential rock n’ roll bands, with a formidable live reputation.
With eleven studio albums under their belt, You Am I is responsible for some of this country’s standout rock records – debut album Sound as Ever featuring hallmark single Berlin Chair, the concise pop of Hi Fi Way which earned the band the first of its four consecutive Australian number one albums plus a handful of ARIA Awards, the ’60s retro concept album Hourly, Daily, and back to basics album #4 Record. Most recently, the band released the magnificent collection, The Lives Of Others, featuring The Waterboy, a single that so effortlessly demonstrates the immense storytelling skills of Tim Rogers, the album landing at No 2 on the ARIA Album Chart.
The Black Crowes return to Australia to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1990 breakthrough album Shake Your Money Maker, playing the album in its entirety along with other classics from across their vast catalogue.
In 1990, when journalists were lamenting the death of rock, as cheesy pop and hair metal dominated the charts, Atlanta’s Black Crowes gave the genre a swift and much needed kick in the ass with Shake Your Money Maker. Fueled by singles “Jealous Again,” “Twice As Hard,” “She Talks To Angels,” and the break-through cover of Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle,” the band immediately took the rock world by storm, topping Rolling Stone’s “Best New American Band Readers Poll” in late 1990.
The Black Crowes went on to release eight studio and four live albums, selling in the tens of millions along the way; they sold out shows around the world; had legendary guitarist Jimmy Page join as a member; got kicked off a tour with ZZ Top for insulting the sponsor; got screwed by bad record deals; got married and divorced, fought amongst themselves and against the rest of the world. In other words, they’ve done everything a legendary rock group should do. Don’t miss The Black Crowes November 2022 headline shows!
