A band member change means the Chris Robinson Band will go on hiatus this year.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood going on hiatus after band member departure, won’t play Fox Theatre benefit this fall

Following the departure of founding keyboardist Adam MacDougall, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood is going on hiatus through the end of the year.

Because of the change, the band has pulled out of events after the conclusion of its tour in July, including the “Revival: A Celebration of Georgia’s Historic Theatres” concert on Sept. 13 at the Fox Theatre.

A replacement act will be announced soon to join a bill featuring the previously announced  Drive-By Truckers, Dodd and the Councilmen and Drivin N Cryin, whose frontman, Kevn Kinney, will host the show.

Tickets for the concert are $35-$75 and available at the Fox box office, www.foxtheatre.org and by calling 1-855-285-8499. A portion of the proceeds will directly benefit the Fox Theatre Institute. 

A statement from CRB regarding MacDougall confirmed that the band and musician have parted ways, but did not identify who will play keyboards through the July concerts.

CRB will release its next studio album, “Servants of the Sun,” on June 14.
