A word from the photographer

The American rock band The Magpie Salute came to Japan for promoting their first album “High Water I” which was released in August 2018. It was a great honour to witness and photograph their show. The Magpie Salute was formed in October 2016 by former The Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson. And the band also includes former The Black Crowes guitarist Mark Ford and bass player Sven Pipien.

The return

The last time The Black Crowes came to Japan was in summer of 2005 as part of “Summer Sonic 05”, a big summer music festival in Japan. They came here for the first time in 14 years, so the crowd welcomed Robinson’s new band with enthusiasm. Before the show started, a crew burned incense on the right (Robinson’s) side of the stage. A trail of smoke and a faint smell of incense created an exotic atmosphere and raised our expectations.

High Water

They started the show with “High Water” from their first album “High Water I” and played a great set of new songs and old cover songs. They also performed a few acoustic tunes In the middle of the show, which was the most beautiful part of the concert. In those songs, we were able to enjoy the amazing voices of Rich Robinson and Mark Ford, not to mention John Hogg. Although their voice types and vocal styles are different, The harmony they created was perfect.

The Black Crowes archives

In the latter part of the show, they performed The Black Crowes songs in a row. After “Ballad in Urgency” and our favourite “Wiser Time” from “Amorica”,  “My Morning Song” was played. And then, the audience started dancing with a beer in their hands and enjoyed that moment. I was watching the beautiful and impressive scene at the back side of the hall. Not a bad way to spend an winter evening.

Ever changing Set List

To our great joy, they have a huge repertoire of more than 200 songs including old classics. Therefore, the set list will be changed every night. How awesome is that?
They return to The United States and go on 2019 US Winter Tour with The Stone Foxes until February 17th. Make sure to check out a date on their website :
