August 10, 2009 — As part of an extended leg of their “Stuck Inside Utopia” tour, rock icons The Black Crowes, one of the world’s foremost blues-oriented hard rock jam bands, will take the Vilar Performing Arts Center stage Nov. 14 for a special 7:30 p.m. performance to kick off the Beaver Creek venue’s winter concert series.
Tickets for The Black Crowes will go on sale at 11 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 14, with reserved seating in the theater priced at $88.
“It’s beyond exciting to present an iconic rock act like The Black Crowes in our intimate, 530-seat venue,” said VPAC Executive Director Kris Sabel. “For their fans and for those new to their rock n’ roll sound alike, this is a pretty momentous live music occasion in the Vail Valley.”
And, Sabel continues, no one should hold off reserving their seats.
“We have every seat in the house priced at $88, so if you jump on those tickets on Friday at 11 a.m., you’ll have the opportunity to see these rock legends up close and personal,” he said. “These guys rock arenas, tour with music legends, it will be truly special to have them play the VPAC on this special evening.
At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock n’ roll the Black Crowes specialized in was sorely out of style. Only Guns N' Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too jagged to pull it off completely.
The Black Crowes, on the other hand, replicated that Stonesy swagger and Faces boogie perfectly. The band echoed classic rock without slavishly imitating their influences, and the band's nostalgic sound helped foster a long, popular career.
Having sold over 20 million albums, The Black Crowes were hailed by Melody Maker as "The Most Rock 'n' Roll Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World." The readers of Rolling Stone named the band the “Best New American Band” of 1990 and the group has toured with the likes of Aerosmith, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Who, AC/DC, The Grateful Dead and Neil Young.
The groups’ newest studio recording, Before the Frost, hits stores Sept. 1. The group will celebrate the occasion with a live performance on the Late Show with David Letterman.
A second CD, entitled Until The Freeze, will be given away for free, exclusively through a unique download code included in Before the Frost, as a thank you to their fans for decades of continued support.
Tickets for The Black Crowes are priced at $88 and will be available online at vilarpac.org, by phone at (888) 920-ARTS(2787) or in person at the Vilar Center box office in Beaver Creek, beginning Aug. 14 at 11 a.m.
