Formed at the end of the '60s, folk rock supergroup Crosby, Stills and Nash remain legends to this day, as beloved for their perennial touring as they are for their influential legacy in American music history. The group, occasionally accompanied by Neil Young, has weathered over four decades of dramatic highs and lows, coming out no worse for the wear — in 2012 they released their fourth live album CSN 2012, proving their intricate vocal harmonies were as exquisite as ever and building anticipation for their 2014 tour dates.
FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:
"Their voices were magnificent. You could close your eyes and be transported back to 1969. It brought back so many memories."
"After all these years their harmonies were right on. Each old CSN song was done with a lot of life and attention to detail. These guys really seem to care and it showed."
"Acoustic versions of classics including Helplessly Hoping and Guinevere sounded as good as ever, along with roaring rock & roll classics."
David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash had each already been members of successful groups when they got together in 1968, hailing from The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Holllies, respectively. After an improvised performance at Joni Mitchell's house resulted in the trio harmonizing together, they took steps to make it official, signing a unique deal with Atlantic Records that used their surnames as the band's name, giving them an unprecedented level of independence and ensuring that the group could not continue on in the absence of one of them. Following the success of their self-titled debut in 1969, they added Neil Young as an official member to round out their touring lineup. The new configuration proved to be a hit — Deja Vu, their 1970 debut as a quartet, landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, going on to sell over seven million copies. Over the course of eight studio albums, the band has penned some of the most iconic songs in American rock music, continuing to thrill fans with arena-filled performances of classic hits like "Ohio" and "Helplessly Hoping."
