Counting Crows were the first band in the O2 Wireless Festival’s 4-year history to perform in front of a sell-out crowd in London’s Hyde Park. Following this achievement, Live Nation is proud to present the band during their much awaited autumn tour of the UK.  Featuring special guests Ben Folds and Melee as support, this promises to be a show not to be missed.

Counting Crows are a global phenomenon with a host of multiple platinum albums and Top 10 chart placings worldwide. Counting Crows have been a huge presence in the music world; from initial hit single Mr.Jones to 2005’s Accidentally In Love from the Shrek 2 soundtrack which saw the Californian band perform at the Academy Awards. New album Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings released in the UK on March 24th, saw the band split their musical personality with the rock Saturday Nights produced by Gil Norton (of Pixies and Foo Fighters fame) whilst the more acoustic Sunday Mornings portion sees Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron and Wine) at the board.
