The Counting Crows DVD Timeline
Last Updated 10/29/03


Long time readers of our site know that most of the staff of are hardcore Counting Crows fans. Many of you will also know that we have been big supporters of a Counting Crows live DVD as well. We even hosted an online petition where fans asked the Counting Crows to start releasing *something* on DVD.

There are some Counting Crows material on DVD today... but no live performances except for their appearance on SNL.

Below is a basic timeline of events with regards to a possible Counting Crows DVD in the future - including our work with the Counting Crows DVD petition:


October 29, 2003 - The Counting Crows video for Big Yellow Taxi will be on a "Now That's What I Call Music" DVD that comes out on November 4, 2003.


October 28, 2003 - Some online retailers are promoting a special limited edition "Bonus DVD" with the order of their upcoming "Best Of" CD release (called "Films About Ghosts") that comes out November 25th.  It has been suggested that the idea of this special DVD of all 8 music videos has been scrapped. Bummer!


October 17, 2003 - Maybe a rumor, maybe not, but it has been suggested that the planned Amsterdam gigs that were taped for DVD last year didn't turn out well - and most likely will not see the light of day on DVD. 


August 5, 2003 - Billboard reports that a live DVD featuring concerts filmed in Amsterdam is indeed in the works (as we've reported before). Also mentioned is the possibility (finally) of seeing "Across A Wire" (uncut) on DVD in the future! Across A Wire includes MTV's Live at the 10 Spot and Storytellers.


July 25, 2003 - We contacted Universal Music who should be the ones distributing any Crows DVD. They said that they are still working on the release schedule.


July 24, 2003 - We contacted the band's management and even though a live DVD / CD set is still in the works, no release date is known.


February 4, 2003 - The Crows announced to the crowd at an Amsterdam gig that they were taping the show that night for a new DVD and CD release.


January 11, 2003 - The Crows mention on a radio station that they were recording some current shows for an eventual live DVD and CD.


April 9, 2002 - After a very long absence and a few unanswered inquiries, we have finally heard from Counting Crows management when we asked for an update. They stated "the band appreciated the tremendous effort that went into the petition". Also, they stated that "there's no way that such a petition can have an immediate manifestation in the release of DVD product". Lastly, they did however state "a DVD release is in the band's future (probably sooner than later)". This comes to the best news thus far. We have heard through the grapevine that it has been discussed before. Maybe we'll see something come about before Christmas (fingers crossed). There are currently around 2,000 concert / music DVDs out in the market right now, and I know you all want a Counting Crows DVD (or 50 different ones), but it looks like we will have to continue to wait a bit more. We'll keep following up on this and will let you know what comes about.


September 10, 2001 - The band's management team contacted us yesterday. The main guy who heads up the Counting Crows was out of the country for a many weeks and apologized for not getting back to us sooner. He has looked at the DVD petition calling it an "amazing” and an “incredible document." They are going to 100% give it to the band when they get back out there after their tour dates so they all will be in the same town when viewing the petition. He went on to comment on the DVD petition by saying "the effort and love that went into it was more than apparent." Lastly he commented by saying "we are treating it with the respect that it absolutely deserves."


August 6, 2001 - The Counting Crows DVD Petition (over 90 pages in total) was finalized and mailed to the band and their management. We'll let everyone know more we we find out anything.


August 2001 - The petition and the new additions is being prepared to be sent to the band's management and the band itself. Stay tuned...


July 2001 - The DVD Cyber Center contacted the band's new management who was eager to get the petition. Also, The DVD Cyber Center put online a new "2001 Fan Comments" page so fans could ask in their own way about any possible DVD release by the band. The new fan comments were added as an addition to the original petition.


June 2001 - It is announced that MTV and Image Entertainment would be releasing a special "MTV 20: Collection" DVD set that features the entire "Round Here" music video in Dolby Digital 5.1. Fans finally get to *see* Counting Crows on DVD (somewhat).


February 2001 - The original petition was sent to the band's management, but either got lost in the mail, misplaced, or just plain thrown aside.


October 2000 to November 2000 - After endless amounts of fan requests, The DVD Cyber Center put an online petition online where fans could vote for what they most wanted to see on a Counting Crows DVD. Over 5,000 people worldwide signed the petition.


December 1999 - The DVD Cyber Center held an online poll to see which music group or individual people wanted to see the most on DVD. The clear answer was Counting Crows.
