The Black Crowes will be playing Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Tuesday September 14th and it was just announced that the Capital Region's own, Marc LaBelle and his band Dirty Honey will be the opening act.

Niskayuna native Marc LaBelle is the lead singer for the Los Angeles based Rock band Dirty Honey and Marc will return home for a show at SPAC but this time, instead of being in the audience, he will be on stage in front of family, friends and fans.

I spoke with LaBelle about growing up around Albany, his high school bands and the Capital Region shows he went to see as a teenager. Ironically Marc saw the Black Crowes open for Tom Petty at SPAC. Now his band is about to spend several months touring the United States with Chris and Rich Robinson.

Hear what Marc has to say about their latest album "Dirty Honey", touring with Slash and how that lead them to record a version of the Aerosmith classic "Last Child". You can hear the full Q1057 interview here:

The Black Crowes tour is the latest in a run of strong tours Dirty Honey have been a part of. In 2019 they opened for The Who, Skillet and Alter Bridge. The band also opened for Guns N' Roses in Las Vegas.

The Dirty Honey single "When I'm Gone" hit #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart before they were even signed to a record deal! Check out the video here:
