The Black Crowes Rock Copenhagen: An Unforgettable Evening

On Tuesday evening, June 4th, The Black Crowes performed a highly anticipated concert at Falkonersalen in Copenhagen. This American rock band, known for hits like “She Talks to Angels” and the cover “Hard to Handle,” promised an evening full of energy and nostalgia. The atmosphere in Falkonersalen is sure to be electrifying, as fans of all ages eagerly await the chance to see the band live. This concert in Copenhagen was part of their new world tour “Happiness Bastards,” named after their recently released album.

From the moment The Black Crowes took the stage, the chemistry between the six band members, including the Robinson brothers, and the audience was palpable. The brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, the heart of the band, played their new songs with passion, but the well-known old hits had not be missing either. Since their reunion in 2019, after several years of separation, they have once again been thrilling their fans.

The audience did sing and dance along, especially when they played their biggest hit, the Otis Redding cover “Hard to Handle.” Chris Robinson’s raw, soulful voice and Rich Robinson’s sharp and captivating guitar play made the hall vibrate.

In addition to the well-known and new songs, The Black Crowes also played some of their older tracks, ensuring a balanced setlist. In the middle of the concert, they performed a special cover of “High School Confidential” by Jerry Lee Lewis. The band effortlessly switched between rock, blues, and country influences, offering something for everyone.

Just before the encore, the band closed the concert with their hit “Remedy” before returning for a brief but powerful rendition of “White Light/White Heat” by The Velvet Underground.

The light show and elaborate stage setup also were excellent, making the experience even more memorable. The stage was adorned with vintage music boxes and splendid lighting. Singer Chris once again was stylishly and extravagantly dressed, in a bright red suit, as seen in their new music videos.

All in all, The Black Crowes’ concert at Falkonersalen was a great success. The band showed why they have been popular for decades. Later this year, The Black Crowes will open for the farewell tour of the American rock band Aerosmith.
