Counting Crows: Banshee Season Tour with Dashboard Confessional
After performing to sold-out crowds worldwide on the “Butter Miracle Tour” over the last two years, world-renowned rock band Counting Crows are pleased to announce its return to the U.S. in 2023 with the “Banshee Season Tour.” After years of collaboration, cult-favorite rock band and long-time friend of the band, Dashboard Confessional, will be joining as support on the upcoming run.
For more than two decades, GRAMMY and Academy Award-nominated rock band, Counting Crows, has enchanted listeners worldwide with its intensely soulful and intricate take on timeless rock ‘n’ roll. Exploding onto the music scene in 1993 with its multi-platinum breakout album, “August and Everything After,” the band has gone on to release seven studio albums, selling more than 20 million records worldwide and is revered as one of the world’s most pre-eminent live touring rock bands.
In September 2014, Counting Crows released its critically acclaimed seventh studio album, “Somewhere Under Wonderland,” which debuted at No. 10 on the charts and was heralded by The Daily Telegraph as “… the best collection of songs since their debut.” The album consisted of nine sprawling tracks around rich sonic tapestries, which yielded some of the most grandiose, yet intimate songs Counting Crows had recorded to date. The year 2018 marked 25 years since the band's inception and sent Adam Duritz, Jim Bogios, David Bryson, Charlie Gillingham, David Immergluck, Millard Powers and Dan Vickrey back on the road for the “25 YEARS AND COUNTING” tour. In 2021, Counting Crows ranked No. 8 on Billboard’s “Greatest of All Time: Adult Alternative Artists” 25th-anniversary chart.
As punk rock proliferated radio airwaves, Dashboard Confessional cemented its role at the vanguard of an entire music scene. Facing familiar aches with tenderness and precision, singer/songwriter Chris Carrabba rocketed the band into mainstream focus, solidifying their place as one of the biggest alternative bands of the 2000s. “All The Truth That I Can Tell,” the band’s ninth studio album, is both a remarkable renewal and a fortunate step forward. Carrabba found himself at a distinct crossroads as the last decade came to an end. Running on fumes, unsure if he’d ever release another album, he waited. The songs eventually came, and though the project might’ve easily come to a screeching halt following a near-fatal motorcycle accident in the summer of 2020, the album stands among Carrabba’s finest — a strikingly potent musical look at himself through a rediscovered keyhole, both an achievement of vision and a vital burst of artistic clarity; less like reading someone’s diary and more like reading their eyes.
