The band will bring its bluesy, new-fashioned rock’n’roll to The Crowes’ U.S. trek that kicks off July 20 in Nashville, Tennessee, and will include a Dirty Honey hometown stop at The Forum in Los Angeles — a long way from the days when the band played the Basement Tavern in Santa Monica, California. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at dirtyhoney.com.

Sharing the stage with The Black Crowes is something Dirty Honey front-man LaBelle has dreamt about his entire life. “The Black Crowes are one of my all-time favorite bands, period,” said LaBelle. “I grew up listening to them in my stepbrother’s car, so to now be opening the show on their ‘Shake Your Money Maker Tour,’ truly is a dream come true.”

Since “When I’m Gone,” Dirty Honey’s 2019 debut single that became the first song by an unsigned artist to land at No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart, the band has made a name for itself on the rock music scene. They’ve opened for The Who, Guns N’ Roses, and Slash, sold out their first-ever headline tour, was named an “Artist You Need To Know” by Rolling Stone, saw all three of its singles go Top 10 on the rock charts, and earlier this year, the band’s debut full-length, self-titled album entered the Current Hard Rock Chart at No. 2.

“We’re all so excited to play shows again, share some music with the world, see some fans, and find out how well we can play our new music,” added LaBelle. “And that we’re going on tour with The Black Crowes is just beyond amazing … we really can’t wait.”

Before joining The Black Crowes, Dirty Honey, which also features John Notto on guitars, Justin Smolian on bass, and Corey Coverstone on drums, will headline a three-week club tour.
