The latter includes the infamous "Jamaica Mistaica," which was inspired by an incident where Jamaican authorities accidentally opening fire on Buffett's sea plane while he was transporting Bono and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell.

The final batch is due 8/16 and will offer 1977's "Maragaritaville"-featuring Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Altitudes, 1978's Son of a Son of a Sailor, 1979's Volcano and 1995's Barometer Soup.

BLACK CROWES JAM WITH RONNIE WOOD IN L.A.
4/16/24

The Black Crowes welcomed Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood 4/12 at Los Angeles' Greek Theatre for a surprise performance of "Stay With Me" by the latter's former band The Faces.

The Crowes played the song live way back in 1990 and have been known to bust out other Faces songs such as "Glad and Sorry." Wood, who joined the Stones after leaving the Faces in 1975, is gearing up to rejoin Mick and Keith on the road starting 4/28 in Houston.

As for the Robinson brothers-led, Mark DiDia-managed Crowes, the group's first album in 15 years, Happiness Bastards, is out now. They have their own dates on the books through mid-September, after which they will resume the postponed Peace Out Tour opening for Aerosmith.

PHISH FEATURING NEW TUNES AT SPHERE RESIDENCY
4/11/24

Phish fans already drooling with anticipation for the group's impending residency at MSG's Sphere have more to celebrate with today's release of "Evolve," the title track from their 16th album.

The LP is due July 12 from Phish's JEMP Records and its material is expected to be featured at Sphere. "Evolve" is likely already familiar to Phish-heads following its appearance on guitarist Trey Anastasio's 2020 solo project, Lonely Trip, and several live airings during the band's 2023 tour.

The Sphere run begins 4/18 and will offer unique set lists and visuals to maximize the Las Vegas venue's jaw-dropping immersive environment. Speaking to The Washington Post, show director Abigal Holmes recalled asking Anastasio about the Vegas residency, "‘What do you think this is? Do you think this is one of those New Year's productions or is this a Phish show in a great new environment?’ And his thought is that it’s a Phish show in a great new environment. And so that’s sort of how we framed thinking about all of the creative choices we’ve made. We wanted to absolutely make the most out of the room and also support Phish doing what Phish does best.”

After Sphere, Phish hits the road for a summer trek 7/19 in Mansfield, Massachusetts, and will also stage its 11th self-produced festival, Mondegreen, 8/15-18 in Dover, Delaware.

Phish is managed by by Red Light’s Coran Capshaw, Patrick Jordan and Jason Colton and booked by Mike Greisch at Wasserman Music.
