Coming off their debut as a band with four shows at the Gramercy Theatre in New York last month, The Magpie Salute, led by founding Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson, have announced concerts in London (April), Chicago (July) and San Francisco (September). The full ticket info is below.

Formed by Robinson, the Magpie Salute also includes two other key members of Crowes fame—guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien-alongside members of Robinson’s own band: drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. The group also includes several 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 the 1997 Further Festival tour).

The band’s opening show at the Gramercy (January 18) began with a 12-minute filmed tribute to the late Black Crowes keyboardist Eddie Harsch, who passed away in November before he was set to perform with the band at the Gramercy shows. The tribute ends with footage of the Magpie Salute performing at the Gramercy which you can click here to watch.
