Crosby, Stills and Nash announce 2013 UK tour

Legendary trio will perform large venues in October, pre-sale tickets available now

One of rock's great super-groups will be heading our way for a UK tour in the autumn - Crosby, Stills and Nash (minus Young) have announced a half-dozen dates for October, including two nights in the capital.

Previously members of The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies, David, Stephen and Graham brought a semblance of sanity to the psychedelic '60s before expanding into a quartet with Neil in 1969.

Their first album as a trio set the tone with the hit-song "Marrakesh Express" paving the way for more Stateside successes, including the #1 album "Déjà vu" with the newly-installed Mr Young. Multi-platinum album followed multi-platinum album before the '90s left them behind on both sides of the Atlantic. The UK's relationship with the band has been muted in comparison - just the one hit, another minor hit and just three charted studio albums have occurred over here, but that doesn't stop the ever-growing legion of fans from selling out shows.

In the autumn, the trio will bring their laid-back Americana-cum-folk rock to the UK on the back of their most recent release, "CSN 2012", a live document recorded during their last world tour. First stop is Bournemouth on 5th October, followed by Birmingham, two nights in London, Manchester and finally for now, Glasgow on the 14th.

Pre-sales for all shows are available now, priced at £55 upwards (£65 for the two Royal Albert Hall shows).
