June and everything after: Counting Crows set 25 Years and Counting summer tour


Danny ClinchCounting Crows will be marking a milestone anniversary this summer with an extensive tour.

The 25 Years and Counting tour will kick off June 27 in Boise, ID and wrap up September 22 in Nashville.  The band’s special guest on most dates will be the ’90s band +LIVE+, best known for hits like “Selling the Drama,” “Lightning Crashes” and “I Alone.”

In a statement, Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz says, “The nice thing about having 25 years of music to celebrate and seven studio albums we absolutely love to choose from is that we can play a different show every night.”

He adds, “The nice thing about touring with +LIVE+ is that we get to spend yet another summer with old friends who play great music. We can’t wait!”

In addition to the tour, Adam has also launched a podcast called Underwater Sunshine!, which features his and his friend James Campion’s musings about life and music.  A new episode is published every Monday.

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Counting Crows’ breakthrough album August and Everything After.
