Experience an evening with Crosby & Nash on their autumn 2011 UK tour
Posted: 18th February 2011
The ever-changing permutations involving Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young has been well-documented, most of it involving the classic 'musical differences' or a ferry-load of drugs. But the music is what matters and, as a duo, trio, quartet or whatever, they have recorded quite a legacy over the course of four decades or so.
The autumn sees the return of the duo, Crosby & Nash, to the UK for a series of rare large-venue concerts across the country. They've been planning the same set-up for a US tour in March - concerts will feature unplugged and electric renditions with a full band at those American legs, so no doubt the same will happen here.
First stop (at present - dates are being added intermittently) is Manchester on 30th September, followed by Glasgow, Liverpool, the Royal Albert Hall and more throughout early October, ending up in Gateshead on the 9th. Tickets for all dates go on sale this Monday at 9am, priced at £55, except London which is curiously cheaper at £50.
Their biggest album to date has been "Deja Vu", a woozy set of songs that included Neil Young's earnest contribution "Helpless", as well as "Teach Your Children" and "Woodstock". But with various interpersonal shenanigans going on, the quartet shrank into a duo and promptly made another top album in the form of "Graham Nash David Crosby" in 1972, proving that despite losing Stephen Stills and Neil Young to solo/band careers, the remaining duo could still kick it - and still can, by all accounts.
