Counting Crows w/ Citizen Cope and Hollis Brown
Please Note: This event is from 2015.
The classic American rock band, Counting Crows, comes to the St. Augustine Amphitheater, bringing with them their iconic music. For the past two decades Counting Crows have contributed greatly to the music and pop culture scene in America and around the world. Special guests for the concert include Citizen Cope and Hollis Brown.
The band originated in the San Francisco Bay area, where lead singer Adam Duritz and producer/guitarist David Bryson began playing the area’s coffeehouses. Soon after forming the Counting Crows the band expanded and began to gain a small following. From the beginning the band focused on their live performances, touring around the country headlining as well as opening for artists like Bob Dylan, the Cranberries, Los Lobos, and others. Their touring came after the release of their debut album, August and Everything After.
"Mr. Jones" was a song Duritz wrote about dreams musicians have about hitting it big, and in December of 1993 MTV played the music video to this song, bringing the song’s premise to fruition for the band. It was an unexpected hit song, drawing massive radio play and launching the band into stardom. August and Everything After became the fastest-selling album since Nirvana's Nevermind.
Counting Crows has never looked back since then. More of their notable hits since the late 90s include, “Hanginaround” and “Colorblind” from their third studio album, This Desert Life released in 1999; 2002 saw the success of their cover of the Joni Mitchell song, “Big Yellow Taxi” on their fourth studio album, Hard Candy. More hit singles from the band include, “Accidentally In Love” which the band earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song in 2005, a Grammy Award, as well as a Golden Globe Award. The song was also featured in Shrek 2.
Counting Crows has sold over 20 million records worldwide and has shown no signs of stopping. Their music is one for the ages and whether visitors heard them back in their beginning days, or are just now being introduced the Counting Crows creates music for all ages and all music lovers!
