, Staff

In another package bill that is sure to please 90’s fans, the Counting Crows and The Wallflowers will join forces this summer for a co-headlining tour. The pop-rock veterans will perform together at the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston on Tuesday, June 18. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $36 to $66, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

Counting Crows continue to tour in support of 2012’s Underwater Sunshine (or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation). The 15-track album is comprised solely of cover songs and features renditions of songs both familiar and obscure, written by such artists as Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, The Faces, Big Star, Kasey Anderson and Teenage Fanclub. It marks the band’s first independent release through their own label, Collective Sounds. Their last offering of all new material was 2008’s Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings.

The Wallflowers ended their hiatus last year and returned to the spotlight with their long-awaited new studio album, Glad All Over. The band’s sixth studio effort and first since 2005’s Rebel, Sweetheart was recorded in Nashville at Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys’ Easy Eye Sound studio. It was produced by Jay Joyce (Emmylou Harris, Cage the Elephant) and mixed by Rich Costey (Bruce Springsteen, The Shins). Glad All Over features singles “Reboot The Mission” (with Mick Jones of The Clash on vocals and guitar) and “Love is a Country”.

Following the show in Boston, Counting Crows will travel to New Hampshire for a headlining show of their own at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Wednesday, June 19. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $51.
