|Chris Robinson with The Black Crowes at Hangout Music Festival|
Southern rockers The Black Crowes ended their two and a half year hiatus this spring with an extensive tour including a prime time slot Saturday night at The Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama. This performance marked their return to The Hangout after their appearance at the first Hangout in 2010. Their hiatus proved not to hinder the quality of their live shows. In fact, it was quite the opposite. They played with as much power and charisma as they ever have. Vocalist Chris Robinson’s easily identifiable voice echoed over the beautifully sunny beach full of chanting swimsuit-clad fans.
