Live Nation Presents Counting Crows - Newcastle
On Tuesday 4th Newcastle, the Californian rock band Counting Crows will be playing a special date at the O2 Academy Newcastle. The band have recently embarked on a nationwide US tour and have sold out countless venues including the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood and Central Park in New York as well playing at another 30+ venues around America.
Originally forming in 1991, Counting Crows started drawing a large amount of attention after the release of their first album in 1993 named ‘August and Everything After’. The lead single ‘Mr. Jones’ topped the charts in many countries including reaching number 1 in the Canadian singles chart. The track also won Counting Crows the ‘Best New Artist’ award at the MTV Video Music Awards, increasing their popularity around the world and consequently sending them on several well selling tours in ‘93 and ‘94.
Over the course of the next decade Counting Crows released a further three albums, all of which received critical acclaim, with their tracks ‘Hanginaround’ and ‘Colourblind’ featuring in the feature film ‘Cruel Intentions’. Covers of bands such as Travis and Madonna were also heard and the band completed further tours with acts such as Maroon 5 and The Graham Colton Band.
Influenced by the likes of R.E.M, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison, Counting Crows draw together heartfelt lyrics, happy melodies and rhythm that never fails to get your feet tapping. Since their debut album release, the group have sold a huge 20 million albums worldwide, also receiving an Academy Award for their song ‘Accidentally In Love’, which was well known for featuring in the DreamWorks animation ‘Shrek 2’.
