Counting Crows are following up their critically-acclaimed seventh album Somewhere Under Wonderland with a world tour, including a stop at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium on May 10. With 16 dates across Canada, the tour will mark their first across Canada in over 15 years. “It’s about time we’re getting back to Canada,” said frontman Adam Duritz, “After requesting it for years, we are finally getting a legit chance to play across the country. I can’t wait.”
Counting Crows have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide after exploding onto the music scene with their multiplatinum breakout album August and Everything After in 1993. The band, and Adam Duritz in particular, have become known for their high energy and dynamic live performances. Duritz frequently improvises and even rewrites songs live, keeping fans on their toes and entertained. On a live performance on Howard Stern’s Sirius broadcast radio show, he delivered an altered version of “Round Here” that Stern said was one of the best performances in his studio he had ever heard.
Counting Crows also released the video for their second single off Somewhere Under Wonderland, “Earthquake Driver,” on January 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.
