Counting Crows are following up their critically-acclaimed seventh album, Somewhere Under Wonderland, with a 2015 worldwide tour, including 15 dates across Canada.
This is the band’s first tour across Canada in more than 15 years, and it will include Kelowna April 29 at Prospera Place.
Pre-sale and VIP tickets for the band’s Canadian dates go on sale today, and tickets will be available to the general public starting Friday. Counting Crows will also be touring across Australia, Europe and North America this year. For more information, visit countingcrows.com.
They will be performing songs from the 2014 Top 10 album, which critics have been claiming as the “band’s best,” as well as their extensive catalog.
USA Today called Somewhere Under Wonderland “one of their stronger works,” with Consequence of Sound comparing it to “a colorful and emotionally rich palette of sounds that combines past recording styles, flavors from covers album Underwater Sunshine, and the spontaneous spirit of their live performances.”
“It’s about time we’re getting back to Canada. After requesting it for years, we are finally getting a legit chance to play across the country. I can’t wait,” said Adam Duritz.
Counting Crows also released the video for their second single off Somewhere Under Wonderland, Earthquake Driver, Jan. 27.
Joining as the tour’s supporting act will be Twin Forks, the folk rock band started in 2011 by Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional, Further Seems Forever). They released their self-titled debut studio album in February 2014.
