Michael Franti & Spearhead on Tour with the Counting Crows

Come one, come all to the Saturday Night Rebel Rockers Traveling Circus & Medicine Show starring Counting Crows, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Augustana plus special guests!

The Counting Crows today announced plans for a summer tour, THE SATURDAY NIGHT REBEL ROCKERS TRAVELING CIRCUS & MEDICINE SHOW with special guests Michael Franti & Spearhead and Augustana, kicking off June 26 in Milwaukee, WI at SummerFest. The show will be an original format where the three bands (and some special guests along the way) will combine to play together in addition to playing their own sets.

"We want to give fans a completely different concert experience this summer than they've been getting," says Counting Crows front man, Adam Duritz. "We're turning your normal concert experience on its head. We're going to go out on the road with a bunch of our friends and we're all going to play shows together. Make sure you come out early, because when the curtain rises on the MEDICINE SHOW this summer and the lights come up, Counting Crows, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Augustana are all going to be right there together on that stage, along with any other friends and special guests happen to be in town and feel like joining the circus for a night. We won't know what we're going to do until we do it but we're gonna try and make a glorious noise. One way or another, by the time me and my pals walk off that stage, we're gonna make sure you remember that the Circus came to town."
