Counting Crows, the Californian seven-piece rock band will be playing a special date at the Glasgow O2 Academy on November 2nd as park of their extensive US and UK tour. Currently touring a large number of American states, the group have already sold out a number of high profile venues including The Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood and Central Park in New York amongst others. As the band prepares to fly to the other side of the Atlantic for their visit to the UK it is provoking much anticipation amongst their UK fans.
Counting Crows formed in ’91, which consequently led to their debut album ‘August And Everything After’ being released in 1993 drawing attention to the band instantly. The lead single of the album ‘Mr. Jones’ was the standout track, acclaimed by critics and fans winning the band a number 1 position in Canada as well an MTV Video Music Award for ‘Best New Artist’ whilst also dominating charts in many other countries.
The bands following three artist albums were just as well received as two of their tracks ‘Hanginaround’ and ‘Colourblind’ were used in the soundtrack to the feature film ‘Cruel Intentions’. There were also several covers of bands such as Madonna and Travis and Counting Crows also embarked on several tours of the US, appearing with other highly revered groups such as Maroon 5 and The Graham Colton Band.
Counting Crows are influenced by the likes Bob Dylan, R.E.M and Van Morrison also holding a happy, heartfelt style with their songs containing catchy lyrics and melody that always succeeds in getting those toes tapping. Since releasing their first tracks, Counting Crows have sold over 20 million album copies worldwide, plus more recently one of the bands singles ‘Accidentally In Love’ was featured in the soundtrack of the award winning DreamWorks animation ‘Shrek 2’.
