Story by Jack Foley
SAN Francisco rockers Counting Crows have announced a winter tour of the UK for the end of 2014.
The band will play a total of seven dates across the country in November, including a gig at London’s legendary Roundhouse.
The dates are the first of the band’s upcoming European tour and kick off at Birmingham’s O2 Academy on November 1.
Lucy Rose will provide support for all dates.
Vocalist Adam Duritz said in a statement: “Probably the coolest thing about a career like ours is the chance to really see the world. I’ll never forget when we landed in London to start our first European tour, or what it was like to go for a walk in the middle of the night after a show and end up at the Eiffel Tower. European tours are magic. I cannot wait.”

1 – Birmingham, O2 Academy
2 – Glasgow, O2 Academy
4 – Newcastle, O2 Academy
5 – Leeds, O2 Academy
