Counting Crows, The Fray to play Black-Eyed Susan Day

Counting Crows, The Fray and Annie Bosko will perform at Pimlico Race Course's Black-Eyed Susan Day on May 16, the Maryland Jockey Club announced this morning.

The Crows are most famous for their radio-rock run in the '90s, when singles such as "Mr. Jones," "Round Here" and "A Long December" dominated airwaves. (Fans of the movie "Cruel Intentions" will certainly remember the piano ballad "Colorblind" as well.) Expect to hear "Raining in Baltimore," too.

The Fray, which released its fourth album "Helios" a couple of weeks ago, is most known for the singles "Over My Head (Cable Car)" and "How to Save a Life." Bosko is a country singer who was a semi-finalist on "American Idol" Season 8.

The show will begin in the late afternoon and take place in the public infield.

Tickets, on sale now, are $40 and can be purchased at the Pimlico sales office (877-206-8042) or at There is also a two-day Infield combo ticket for both Black-Eyed Susan Day and Preakness Stakes; it costs $90 through April.

Last year, Goo Goo Dolls, Rodney Atkins and Rachel Farley performed at Black-Eyed Susan Day, in the runup to the Preakness.
