The Press Release:
The excitement for THE MAGPIE SALUTE continues to grow.
First it was four back-to-back sold-out shows at the Gramercy Theatre in New York this past January. Then came the announcement of their debut in London where the group will perform four concerts at Under The Bridge (April 12-15), with the first show selling out shortly within an hour of the tickets going on pre-sale. This news was followed by the announcement of shows in Chicago (July), San Francisco (September), Boston (August), Atlanta (August) and Los Angeles (September).
And now comes the news of THE MAGPIE SALUTE’s first-ever national headline tour–starting July 26 in Indianapolis–which will include appearances at festivals (itinerary below). For more information and to purchase tickets, visit: http://themagpiesalute.com/events
THE MAGPIE SALUTE is an exciting new band that features musicians who have played together for decades throughout various projects and share a musical bond. The band brings Rich Robinson, the guitarist and co-founding member of The Black Crowes, together with two key members of Crowes fame–guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien–alongside drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. THE MAGPIE SALUTE also boasts a fine cast of vocalists, including lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), former Crowes singer Charity White and background singers, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen. THE MAGPIE SALUTE marks the reunion of the Robinson and Ford guitar team (Ford left The Black Crowes after their fourth album and 1997 Further Festival tour). “…it was clear from the get-go that Ford and Robinson still have unmistakable synergy,” noted GLIDE MAGAZINE(1/24/17).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Alright so I am not really going to add anything here since this group is an absolutely new thing to me and I guess it’s safe to say that this applies to a lot of you readers as well. I was always more of a “casual” fan of The Black Crowes over the course of my years and liked a fair amount of their tunes provided that they were on the radio of course. Let’s see how this new band works out based on the original members of TBC being involved. I am sure that this will all lead us to a massive TBC reunion one of these days but for the time being let’s keep supporting the artists we admire in whatever project they are interesting in sharing their creative ideas through. Fair enough? I thought so. Folks who are more up on this new project should let me know what they think of it and this new tour and those long time fans of TBC should chime in as well down in the comments section below. I always love to hear from you. Until next time (which is probably sometime in the morning LOL). Ciao.
