For THE BLACK CROWES, it's always been about musical exploration, and on their "Lay Down With Number 13" world tour in 2013, for which tickets go on sale January 11 at 10:13 AM LOCAL TIME, they'll keep their shows as fresh as ever. The iconic and influential band will reach deep inside their songbook and extensive catalog, performing greatly varied set lists. Ticket link information is now available at The tour's first leg will encompass dates in the U.K. March 24-30 and the U.S. April 2-May 4.

For their two-night engagement at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium April 20 and 21, the band--Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Rich Robinson (guitar, vocals), Steve Gorman (drums), Sven Pipien (bass), Adam MacDougall and new member Jackie Greene (guitar, vocals)--have announced that the second night (April 21) will mark the tour's only acoustic show, featuring special guests performing with the band.

"The Black Crowes road has come calling again for us," says Chris Robinson, "Our music is a living, breathing thing, and we go where ever it takes us. In a world of rock and roll tourists, we look forward to seeing our Friends and loyal travelers who will join us and be a part of the shows. The musical horizon beckons."

For the first time since the band's 1990 multi-platinum debut album Shake Your Money Maker, The Black Crowes are offering their fans a limited number of VIP packages which include a Meet & Greet Photo opportunity, poster signed by the band, collectible laminate, Merchandise vouchers and early entrance in the venue.

Its mammoth eight sides on four vinyl albums will contain 26 songs--15 acoustic and 11 electric--from the band's five-night, sold-out NYC performances in the fall of 2010. These never-released-before versions will also be available as a double album digital download.

THE BLACK CROWES have sold over 20 million albums and are known as one of rock's best live acts. They have been called "The Most Rock n' Roll Rock 'n' Roll Band In the World" and a "thoroughbred American rock 'n' freakin' roll band"; their panoramic live shows feature alternating set lists and signature incendiary musical explorations. In 2010, they were inducted into the Georgia Music Hall Of Fame at the 32nd Annual Georgia Music Hall Of Fame Awards Show. Also in 2010, they commemorated the 20th anniversary of their landmark multi-platinum debut, 1990's Shake Your Money Maker, with Croweology (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records), their acclaimed first-ever double album of all-acoustic material with new arrangements of their best-loved songs and deep cuts (****four-star review in Rolling Stone by David Fricke, 8/3/10).
