NEW YORK (Billboard) – The reunited Black Crowes have been added to the bill for the Bonnaroo festival (June 11 in Manchester, Tenn.) and New Orleans’ annual Jazz and Heritage festival (April 22).

In addition, the group has added two additional shows, March 29-30, to its previously announced five-night run at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

Those gigs sold out within minutes of going on sale to the general public over the weekend. Tickets for the newly added dates, which will feature support by North Mississippi Allstars, will be available via an Internet pre-sale starting Thursday (Feb. 10) and to the general public on Saturday.

According to the band’s official Web site (, the majority of the tickets for the March 29-30 shows will be up for grabs during the Internet presale.

It is still unknown which musicians will be joining principal Crowes members Chris and Rich Robinson at the shows, which will be the band’s first since later October 2001.
