Counting Crows (SOLD OUT)
North American indie rock showcase summer tour The Outlaw Roadshow starring Counting Crows with their special guests: Tender Mercies, Kasey Anderson and The Honkies and Field Report. Counting Crows is an enduring musical phenomenon, an American rock band from Berkeley, California, formed in 1991 by lead singer and pianist Adam Duritz and producer/guitarist David Bryson. The band also includes Charlie Gillingham (accordion, keyboards), Dan Vickrey (lead guitar), Dave Immergluck (guitar, banjo, mandolin), Jim Bogios (drums) and Millard Powers (bass). Counting Crows gained popularity following the release of debut album, August and Everything After (1993), which featured the hit single “Mr. Jones” Duritz sang the song in fun, enjoying the fantasy of making it big. However, he did not realize that just months later, it would become an unexpected hit song drawing massive radio play and launching the band into stardom. August and Everything After became the fastest-selling album since Nirvana’s Nevermind. Since then they have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and received a 2004 Academy Award nomination for their song “Accidentally in Love,” from the hit film Shrek 2. Counting Crows recently debuted the album Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On our Summer Vacation) to the delight of fans and critics, featuring infectious interpretations of some of the band’s favorite songs.
