The Black Crowes Present: Shake Your Money Maker, July 29, DTE Energy Music Theatre

After years of interpersonal strife, The Black Crowes are back at it again, bringing their addictive blend of southern rock and soul to audiences nationwide. Founded by brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, the Black Crowes combine familial “close harmonies” with overdriven guitars and the unmistakable sound of a Hammond B3 organ. This tour will highlight their magnum opus, Shake Your Money Maker, featuring hits like “Hard to Handle,” “Jealous Again” and “She Talks To Angels.” For Crowes fans, it’s a dream come true – and one that’s long overdue.
