Crosby, Stills & Nash Premiering New Material On Upcoming Tour
Crosby, Stills & Nash will premiering a handful new songs on their upcoming tour, which kicks off on May 1st and 3rd at New York City's Rose Theatre at Lincoln Center. David Crosby told fans in a Twitter post: "Nash and I have four new songs to do in upcoming CSN touring. . . BRAND NEW. . . Stills says he has new stuff too. . . yeehaw."
For the tour's opening shows, CSN will team up with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Wynton Marsalis. The trio will play the two-night event on May 1st and 3rd at Lincoln Center's Rose Theatre, dubbed, The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook, which will consist of the Jazz at Lincoln Center's 2013 Annual Gala Concert followed by a charity dinner, with the general public able to purchase tickets for the May 3rd show.
David Crosby told us that his songwriting is a natural extension of his heart and mind: "A sense of humor is necessary to stay alive and a sense of what do you love, what do you care about, what really has worth in this life. And I wind up writin' about that. There are things I'm very angry about -- I wind up writin' about those."
Graham Nash told us that CSN have long ago put their ego's aside to create the best show possible for both the casual and die-hard fan: "The ticket prices are exorbitant nowadays, y'know? And it's hard to earn a dollar. So we want to give as much value as we can. So instead of saying, 'Well, y'know, I don't wanna do 'Our House,' its so old; I'll do 'Our House' at the drop of a hat, because y'know what? It makes people feel good -- and what's the price of that?"
