The Black Crowes have nabbed Robert Randolph and the Family Band as well as the Drive-By Truckers for a nine-week summer tour. The outing will kick off June 10 in Seattle and run through Aug. 12 at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Tickets begin going on sale Saturday (April 22).

After an extensive hiatus, the Crowes reunited to tour in 2005, but have yet to release any new music. The group now consists of vocalist Chris Robinson and his brother Rich on guitar, drummer Steve Gorman, keyboardist Eddie Hawrysch, bassist Sven Pipien and guitarist Marc Ford.

The Robinson siblings are in the midst of their Brothers of a Feather acoustic tour, which runs through April 26 in Los Angeles. The Crowes’ recently released DVD, “Freak’n’Roll … Into the Fog,” debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Music Video Chart.
