Counting Crows, the Californian-based seven piece rock band will be playing the Manchester O2 Apollo on the 7th November 2014 to play a special show as part of the extensive US and UK tour. Currently touring a large number of American states, the group have already sold out a number of shows at high profile venues such as Central Park in New York and The Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood amongst many others. Counting Crows will be coming to the UK to play 5 shows in November, and their visit is one that is being highly anticipated by many fans this side of the Atlantic.
Forming in 1991 and releasing their debut album ‘August And Everything After’ in 1993, Counting Crows started drawing huge attention after the release of the hit single ‘Mr. Jones’, which won the band an MTV Video Music Award for ‘Best New Artists’ after receiving critical acclaim and gaining a number 1 position in Canada, as well as dominating the charts in many other countries around the globe.
The next three of the bands artist albums also did great things for their reputation, featuring well-to-do covers of other reputable artists such as Travis and pop queen Madonna. Their own tracks ‘Hanginaround’ and Colourblind’ were also picked to feature in Roger Kumble’s film ‘Cruel Intentions’ rocketing the band to further stardom. Counting Crows embarked on several tours of the US, appearing with other groups such as Maroon 5 and The Graham Colton Band.
Van Morrison, R.E.M and Bob Dylan are just some of the artists that Counting Crows music takes influence from, never failing to provoke tapping toes and clicking fingers with happy heartfelt lyrics and melody. Counting Crows have hold over 20 million album copies since they first started making waves and recently have been in the spotlight as their track ‘Accidentally In Love’ was famed after appearing in the award winning DreamWorks animation ‘Shrek 2’.
