Why see Counting Crows?
Formed in San Francisco in the early 90s, it was Counting Crows' 1991 debut August and Everything After which shot them to fame. Overseen by uber-producer T-Bone Burnett, it featured the monster hit Mr. Jones, which turned the band into a household name overnight. Its easy-going blend of alternative rock with just a hint of country stood in sharp contrast to the Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins' releases of the same year.
Counting Crows have stuck to their formula with great effect. They've now sold over 20 million records over the course of their career, and have received Grammy and Academy Award nominations (the latter for Accidentally in Love from Shrek 2). Make sure you don't miss these legends when they come to a town near you.
