Tickets for the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York and Terminal 5 in New York City go on sale Friday, August 23 at 12:00 p.m. local time. Tickets for Bill Graham Civic Auditorium go on sale Sunday, September 8 at 10:00 a.m. local time.

The band have confirmed that after these concerts, THE BLACK CROWES have no future plans for touring, as band members will focus in 2014 on solo releases and projects.

Lead singer/guitarist Chris Robinson says, "This year in THE BLACK CROWES has reaffirmed my belief in the power of music and the power of love. Can't wait to see what the future holds. Long live rock and roll!"

Guitarist/vocalist Rich Robinson says: "The tour this year has been incredibly positive. From our own shows, and into the TEDESCHI TRUCKS tour where we found our musical soulmates. Really great vibes all around. I'm looking forward to the fall for some great shows."

Drummer Steve Gorman said,: "The tour this year has been a great run, and we're looking forward to the fall dates in a lot of our favorite towns. The turnout and response from the fans has been overwhelming. After 23 years of doing all we could to kill this beast — and I mean we really threw everything we had at it but just couldn't get it to die — I think it's obvious that the best course of action is to enjoy it as much as we can."

THE BLACK CROWES' "Lay Down With Number 13" tour — ending a two-year hiatus — kicked off March 24 with five sold-out U.K. shows. They've been flying high since in the U.S. and in Europe, where they performed June 18 to July 6, including headlining shows, festivals and two stadium concerts with Bruce Springsteen.

Yesterday (August 15), THE BLACK CROWES wrapped a successful co-headlining summer amphitheater tour with the TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND. They will perform this weekend (August 18) at the Peach festival in Scranton, Saturday before heading out September 6 for various festival and headlining dates.
