Fresh off the success of their massive 2012 tour, Crosby, Stills, & Nash have announced they're taking the show across the pond for a string of European dates next spring. As of now, CSN has only announced nine German dates and two Paris shows, but more cities are expected to be announced after the New Year. CSN kicks things off on June 20th in Dresden, Germany and wraps things up over two nights on July 4th and 5th at Paris' Olympia Theatre. So far there's been no word as to whether the band will bookend the overseas dates with any North American shows.
One of the mainstays of all of CSN's tours is the inclusion of both new and previously unheard material. We asked Graham Nash why year-after-year, the group's audience has not only put up with -- but actually welcomed -- hearing songs they don't know: "Because they know that that song is going to be about something that they should be interested in. I'm not interested in wasting your time -- at all. I want every song to be great. Do we make it 100 percent? Of course not. Do we try? Absolutely."
