Counting Crows have decided to make the road their summer vacation with their Banshee Season tour. The Adam Duritz-fronted band will visit 56 North American cities with Dashboard Confessional on all but seven dates, and Frank Turner as a special guest on select dates.
Duritz shared a statement: “One of the best things about a life in rock and roll is that we spend it traveling the world playing music. It’s even better when you can do it with one of your best friends and watch them play every night too. Chris Carrabba hits the trifecta for me in that he’s one of my best friends in the world, one of my favorite people in the world, and he leads one of my favorite bands of all time, Dashboard Confessional. Sorry for the terrible pun but hands down, this is going to be the best summers ever.”
The Banshee Season tour will begin June 13th in Nebraska and close at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado in September. With 56 cities on the roster, they will of course hit all the majors including Boston, Atlantic City, Nashville, Milwaukee, and Seattle. Their SoCal date lands them at YouTube Theater in Los Angeles on September 6th.

Counting Crows released their “Butter Miracle Suite One” EP in 2021, but will surely bring out the hits “Round Here,” “Mr. Jones,” “Rain King,” “A Long December,” and “Hanginaround.”
Last year Dashboard Confessional dropped their album “All the Truth That I Can Tell,” and we expect they will share favorites “Hands Down,” “Vindicated,” “Stolen,” “Saints and Sailors,” and the song that introduced many of us to them, “Screaming Infidelities.”
The general sale for the Banshee Season tour begins this Friday at 10 a.m. local time. If you want to sneak into tomorrow’s presale, visit the Counting Crows link below for details.
