CROSBY, STILLS & NASH TO BEGIN 2012 TOUR IN AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND
THEIR FIRST PERFORMANCES IN THESE PARTS OF THE WORLD SINCE 2007
More than four decades since David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash first harmonized in Laurel Canyon, and played their first-ever concert as a trio at the legendary Woodstock festival, they continue a creative partnership that is one of the most influential and enduring in music. Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) will kick off 2012 with a spring tour beginning in Auckland, New Zealand on March 24, and continuing on to Australia. The itinerary marks CSN's first performances in these regions since 2007, and their first tour since 2010.
CSN is the headliner for Australia's 23rd annual Byron Bay BluesFest on April 6. Highlights on tour also include shows at the Palais in Melbourne (Mar. 29) and the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney (Apr. 4). Additional Asian dates will be added in the coming weeks.
Most recently, CSN performed a handful of high-profile U.S. dates in 2011, including the all-star MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) concert at Shoreline Amphitheatre to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide, and a three shows at NYC's Beacon Theater.
David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice-once with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and a second time with the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Hollies, respectively. They have also been inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, with the honor recognizing both CSN as a group, and each member as individual solo artists.
CSN's music first became a cornerstone of rock ‘n roll with their self-titled 1969 debut LP, now one of Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." 1970's Déjà Vu-another "500 Greatest"-followed, the first album from the group's four-man line-up with Neil Young (CSN&Y). Ever since-through changing times, various configurations, and acclaimed solo careers-Crosby, Stills & Nash have continued to tour and record as "three together."
