THE BLACK CROWES' Chris and Rich Robinson launched a short acoustic tour under the BROTHERS OF A FEATHER banner last night (Wednesday, February 12) at Omeara in London, England.

The 13-song set included three songs from THE BLACK CROWES' "Shake Your Money Maker" album, as well as select cuts from "The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion", "Amorica", "Three Snakes and One Charm", "By Your Side", "Lions" and "Warpaint". Chris and Rich also played two covers: MANASSAS's "So Many Times" and LITTLE FEAT's "Willin'".

The BROTHERS OF A FEATHER tour will include one more show in Europe — in Amsterdam on Saturday (February 15) — before hitting the U.S. for nine additional dates.

The trek is taking place ahead of THE CROWES' tour this summer celebrating the 30th anniversary of "Shake Your Money Maker".

THE BLACK CROWES played two reunion shows in November — in West Hollywood, California and in New York City.

Joining Chris and Rich in the new BLACK CROWES lineup are EARTHLESS guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, former TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND bassist Tim Lefebvre along with ONCE AND FUTURE BAND members Joel Robinow on keyboards and Raj Ojha on drums.

THE BLACK CROWES' upcoming tour will mark Chris and Rich's first shows together since 2013. The group will perform its multi-platinum 1990 debut album in its entirety, along with a smattering of other hits and favorites.

The official tour kicks off properly on June 17 at Austin's Austin360 Amphitheater in Austin wraps on September 19 at the Forum in L.A.

Regarding the decision to enlist all-new members for THE BLACK CROWES' reunion, Chris told Rolling Stone: "That was the first thing Rich and I agreed on. We don't want anyone from the solo groups. We don't want anyone from the past." Rich added: "In order to make this work. To give Chris and I the space to…" Chris interjected: "Be here right now."

Chris told Rolling Stone the new tour will hearken back to THE BLACK CROWES' original style, explaining: "I think this is pure. We went off into a lot of things. There's no jamming. There's no extraneous stuff. This is the purest BLACK CROWES that people first [heard]. I hope we reconnect with some people who lost their way with us because of all of our other shit we were doing."

Rich spoke frankly about the obvious family politics in reuniting with his older brother, saying "No one is here to be a dick. We love this music. We're musicians. We're brothers. We love each other. We love this opportunity. Changing the context with Chris and I and all new people is a much healthier place for us."
