The band – which is planning to take an extended hiatus after the current “Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys” tour – will be performing a 90-minute acoustic set followed by another 90-minute rockin’ electric set on Friday.
Over the years, the Black Crowes have had a special place in their hearts for the Capital Region, and they’ve played a wide variety of venues around town from Saratoga Winners to the Palace, from the Glens Falls Civic Center to the Times Union Center to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, where they headlined the H.O.R.D.E. Festival.
And although this year marks the band’s 20th anniversary, they actually made their Albany debut more than 20 years ago. In the late ’80s, they were an unheralded band still known by their original name, Mr. Crowe’s Garden, when they first graced an Albany stage at the late, great QE2.
