Singer-songwriters David Crosby and Graham Nash will launch a Spring tour in the U.S. with a March 25th show in Long Beach, California. What a way to start off the season of rebirth. While Crosby and Nash's legendary vocal harmonies will be the centerpiece of the show, they will be accompanied on the road by an ace-backing band featuring James Raymond (keyboards), Dean Parks (guitar), Kevin McCormick (bass), and Steve DiStanislao (drums). The initial on-sale date for tickets is January 21st.
Additionally, the tour will mix acoustic and plugged-in performances. "Touring with a full band gives us the opportunity to do selections from our catalogue that Graham and I haven't performed live together before," said Crosby in a statement. "We will also be introducing some brand new songs we've written, that have never been heard onstage or on record."
If you are a fan of C and N, then this show cannot be missed. It's going to be eclectic, that's for sure.
In other news, Crosby and Nash are also launching their own record label, Blue Castle Records, with the first-ever digital and vinyl editions of the live album Another Stoney Evening, which was recorded 40 years ago, in 1971 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. The release date is set for March 22nd and the album can be pre-ordered through their website www.crosbynash.com when tickets for the tour go on sale.
"This album represents the very beginning of our musical relationship as a duo," said Nash. "Whatever David and I do well together, it's wonderful that we're still doing it well. For the upcoming tour, with a rock 'n roll band, we've gotten fantastic advance response. It's exciting to be bringing this great new show to people."
