Crosby, Stills & Nash Add Fifth And Final Show On October 22 At The Beacon Theatre In New York City
With four shows at New York City's Beacon Theatre near sell out, Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) have added a fifth and final date, October 22, to its four night run (Oct. 16, 17, 19, 20) at the venue next month. The show also marks the conclusion of CSN's extensive 2012 world tour, which comprised more than 80 dates in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, and South America. For its second, tour-closing set on October 22, CSN will perform its classic 1969 debut album, Crosby, Stills & Nash, in its entirety-with songs including "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," "Marrakesh Express" and "Guinnevere." It's the first time the band has ever performed a full album on stage. CSN website members will have access to pre-sale tickets for the final Beacon Theatre show on Thursday, September 20 before the public on sale on September 21st.
"We've had an incredible time on the road this year," says Graham Nash. "We can't think of a better way to honor the end of our 2012 tour, than playing our first album as the last set of our final show." The tour kicked off in January, and has drawn capacity crowds and enthusiastic reviews. Writing for MSN Music, Mark Brown noted, "At Red Rocks in Colorado onAugust 21, CSN absolutely killed it. Every song. No lulls. No filler … It's hard to believe that any band in 2012 would be putting on better shows than it did in 1969, but CSN did just that."
Earlier this summer, the group released CSN 2012, a 25-song set on Blu-ray and DVD, presenting CSN's first live performance film in more than 20 years; the film includes a conversation with David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash, and "on-the-road interviews" with the group's band and crew. The Players accompanying Crosby, Stills & Nashon their 2012 tour are: Todd Caldwell (organ), Shane Fontayne (guitar), Steve DiStanislao (drums), Kevin McCormick (bass), and James Raymond (keyboards).
