Watch The Black Crowes' Chris Robinson Ask Crowd To "F***ing Pay Attention"

Chris Robinson

The Black Crowes' Chris Robinson had no problem putting a chatty crowd in its place during a Brothers of a Feather concert last Friday (February 21) in Philadelphia's Foundry at the Filmore. 

"It would be nice if we could hear ourselves," Robinson admonished as he and his brother Rich Robinson kicked off "Wiser Time" on Friday night. "So, if you could just shut the fuck up a little bit. … But that's cool, because it's like, 'What are we here - every fucking week doing this shit?'"

The Brothers of a Feather mini tour serve as the warm-up to the larger Black Crowes "Shake Your Money Maker" reunion tour, which celebrates the group's 1990 debut album

"If you can't concentrate for a few minutes, why are we doing this?" Chris appealed in a fan's video footage of the show. When one fan shouted in apology, "We are sorry. We love you," Chris responded, "I get it, and we're happy to be here, but it's not any fun if we can't get into it. And we can't get into it when all I can hear is conversations. What's the point? I really wanna know. You're f***ing grown adults and you paid your money. You should f***ing pay attention." He continued, "I get it. The vibe is so good, and everyone's happy, but we have to stop, 'cause we can't hear ourselves. Seriously, man. Get it f***ing together."

Six more US shows remain in the Brothers of a Feather tour before the intimate series wrap up in San Francisco on March 6.
