The Black Crowes: The Hordern Pavilion Sydney, Australia
Toby Creswell, Rolling Stone, 20 August 1992
THE BLACK Crowes flew almost 12,000 miles to speak to the disfranchised. The 4500 people who crammed into the Atlanta band's single Sydney show were the surfers, bikers and suburban yobs who have been left behind by the fashions of the last twenty years. These were the people who responded to the straight-up blues rock of 1990's Shake Your Money Maker. There were no spiky hairdos, nor were there heavy tattoos or hip-hop sweat suits among this crowd. They came in their flannel shirts and leather jackets. The Crowes fans came to rock.
