US rockers Counting Crows are a group of busy bees this year, as far as concert activity goes. The lads are still promoting their latest studio album, last year’s “Somewhere Under Wonderland,” and will spend a decent chunk of 2015 on the open roads of North America and Europe.
May is the month of Canada for the CC team, as the band will take stops in such major points as Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec City, only to take a major shift and rock Europe throughout the month of June. Notable Counting Crows concerts in Europe include gigs in Rome, Dublin, Barcelona and more.
Finally, during late July, August, September, and a portion of October, the band will be spending time in the good ole US of A. Many important stops, too many to count in fact, but here goes – Nashville, Miami, Seattle, Las Vegas, Austin, Houston and so much more. The boys still got it, catch ’em while you can.

The story of US alt rock stars Counting Crows began back in 1991 as a group of young lads, including guitarist and backing vocalist David, and singer and pianist Adam Duritz decided to join forces and craft a few tunes based on their role models such as Van Morrison, Nirvana, REM and more.
The band was named after a British divination nursery rhyme called “One for Sorrow,” a clever ditty about the superstitious counting of magpies, a member of the crow family.
Interestingly enough, it only took them around two years to deliver the goods in majors style. In September 1993, Counting Crow’s debut album “August and Everything After” was released, scoring major global success thanks to such hit numbers as “Mr. Jones,” “Round Here,” “Rain King,” and “A Murder of One.” The record went on to sell seven million copies in the US alone, earning the boys a 7x platinum certificate.
Personnel changes and slight internal turmoil have occurred, but the band’s foundation still managed to keep it together, and release their sophomore studio effort “Recovering the Satellites” in October 1996. The album saw the band earning their first, and thus far last No. 1 spot on the US Billboard 200 album chart, retaining their status of a hot rock act with 2 million units shipped around the States.
By this point, the Counting Crows have established themselves as one of the strongest rock ‘n’ acts of the decades. They weren’t a part of the movement that spearheaded what they call the grunge revolution, but they crafted their own bland alternative approach and old-school grittiness, and have done so very well.
In total, five more studio efforts have followed – “This Desert Life” in 1999, “Hard Candy” in 2002, “Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings” in 2008, “Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation)” in 2012, and “Somewhere Under Wonderland” in 2014. In addition, CC have unveiled a total of five studio records, captivating the energy of their performance throughout two decades.
Throughout their musical career, the band has sold over 20 million records around the globe, and ever earned an Academy Award nomination for composing the “Accidentally in Love” tune which was included in “Shrek 2” movie.
The band’s current lineup consists of Adam Duritz on lead vocals and piano, David Bryson on guitar, Charlie Gillingham on accordion and keyboards, Dan Vickrey on lead guitar, David Immergluck on guitar, banjo and mandolin, Jim Bogios behind the drum kit, and Millard Powers on bass guitar.
Despite a few troublesome stints, the band kept their reputation clean and their internal relationships solid. Some members have released solo projects, and touring was occasionally extensive and rough, but one thing remains solid and certain – the Counting Crows always deliver a mean punch and even to this date provide amazing shows to fans around the globe. If they happen to be cruising through your region, we wholeheartedly recommend watching the lads live and seeing the blistering energy in person.
