The still-dreadlocked Duritz took to the stage to sing backing vocals on ‘Answering Bell’ from Adams‘ new album ‘Gold’.
Duritz, who appeared as a background singer on the sessions for ‘Gold’, simply shrugged when his microphone appeared not to work, and shook off Adams‘ assertion that the Counting Crows would have a new album out soon.
Throughout the rest of his set, Adams was in a rollicking mood, ignoring the requests for Bryan Adams‘ ‘Summer of ’69’ and ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ and knocking out an impromptu cover of Black Flag‘s ‘Nervous Breakdown’ instead.
Adams returns to the UK and Ireland for live performances later this month.
He plays: London Shepherds Bush Empire (October 17)
