Brotherly Love: The Black Crowes and Oasis

Newlywed Chris Robinson and The Black Crowes performed May 14 at the Greek Theatre as part of the Brotherly Love Tour that also featured dueling brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, of Oasis.

Though Oasis struggled to gain the acceptance of the crowd, the Robinson brothers stole the night, which ended with a cover of “”To Love Somebody”” with Noel and Joan Osborne.

The Black Crowes performed new songs like “”Midnight From the Inside Out,”” “”Greasy Grass River”” and “”Cosmic Friend,”” as well as hits like “”Twice as Hard”” and “”Sting Me.””

Oasis opened with “”Go Let it Out”” and closed with a cover of The Beatles’ “”I am the Walrus”” and included hits like “”Don’t Look Back in Anger,”” “”Morning Glory”” and “”Champagne Supernova.””

Oasis is working on a follow-up to “”Standing on the Shoulder of Giants”” and The Black Crowes have a new album in stores titled “”Lions.””
