Sheryl Crow makes very few changes to the formula of her setlist, which can be both good and bad. Minor adjustments include the addition of “Can’t Cry Anymore” to some of her setlists and “A Change Would Do You Good” often replacing the lesser known jam, “Leaving Las Vegas.”
Aside from these small changes, the bulk of her setlist is pretty consistent. She opens with the extremely interesting choice of “Steve McQueen,” an ode to the famous 60’s actor, from her critically overlooked 2002 album, C’mon, C’mon. The song is the only choice cut from the record and its production from country/pop elite producer John Shanks may have something to do with that.
Despite the fact that Sheryl Crow is somewhat tethered to the late 90’s pop/rock scene, she has been steadily releasing material even up to now with, 2013’s Feels Like Home. She acknowledges this recent record with four songs from it, including a performance of perhaps its strongest song, “Best of Times” and the country leaning “Callin Me When I’m Lonely.” She fully embraces this new country sound with the almost classic country pop jam “Easy.”
Sheryl Crow does not shy away from the material that made her famous, including three big singles in particular that most fans will be happy to hear make it onto nearly all of her setlists. This includes her famous cover of the Cat Stevens folk classic, “First Cut Is the Deepest.” Her big hit “All I Wanna Do” comes up early in the setlist, and the big arena rock tune “If It Makes You Happy” appears right near the end.
Between her short setlist length and her reliance on new songs and top hits from her breakthrough, she does not perform material from a lot of her albums. This keeps the setlist a bit constrained to a few main records, such as her new one and her chart-topping self-titled.

Leaving Las Vegas

What is this about Sheryl Crow playing Led Zeppelin?
Big hard rock and Zeppelin fans may be livid to hear that Sheryl Crow is attempting Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” to close out her show. She adds an interesting swagger to the tune and gives it justice, aside from lacking Jimmy Page’s roaring guitar style.
How long is a Sheryl Crow concert?
Sheryl Crow plays for a fair 60 to 70 minutes across a 14-18 song setlist.
Who is opening the show?
Part of the reason why Sheryl Crow has a shorter setlist is because she is co-headlining with the country rock trio, Rascal Flatts. The group has had a career nearly as long as Sheryl Crow, and they are promoting their just released record, Rewind. The group has reliably released a record at least once every other year since their inception in 1999. It is expected that Rascal Flatts is the main headlining act, and will close out most evenings.
Another rock/country trio, Gloriana, is filling in as direct support for both headlining acts. They are prepping a third studio album with their second being 2012’s, A Thousand Miles Left Behind.
How do I get access to presale tickets for Sheryl Crow’s tour?

The next method is through the American Express platform and they are covering nearly the entire tour this year. An American Express card is required for purchase.
Who is Sheryl Crow’s publicist and press contact?
Sheryl Crow is associated with Warner Music Nashville and you can contact the label through their web form.
“Two decades into her recording career, Crow’s voice was still impressive as she added a slight yodel to the high-reaching chorus. “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely” mastered the emotions of heartache and the draw of a wrong kind of love, pairing easily with the dueling keyboard and organ that carried her 1998 hit, “My Favorite Mistake.” “Best of Times” was an extended, rumbling jam with the band grooving together around Crow blowing out a bluesy harmonica stomp.” – Melissa Miller of JSOnline
“Sheryl Crow’s set was fantastic, as she had more energy and charisma in her first two songs than Yoakam had in his whole set. Crow smiles all the time while she’s singing, and she seems really happy to be performing.” – Mark My Words Blog
“Unlike all but a few younger acts on Pacific’s roster, the 50-year-old rocker is still a relevant figure in contemporary music – more than she has been in the past decade, actually, thanks to recent forays into richer musical heritage and a successful crossover into the country market.” – Ben Wener of the Orange County Register
