David Crosby and Graham Nash will begin a brief spring tour March 25 in Long Beach, Calif. They’ll mix acoustic and electric performances, and their backing band will feature James Raymond (keyboards), Dean Parks (guitar), Kevin McCormick (bass) and Steve DiStanislao (drums).
“Touring with a full band gives us the opportunity to do selections from our catalog that Graham and I haven’t performed live together before,” Crosby said in a statement released Jan. 17. “We will also be introducing some brand-new songs we’ve written that have never been heard onstage or on record.”
In other news, Crosby and Nash have started their own label, Blue Castle Records. “Another Stoney Evening,” recorded in 1971 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, is due March 22 in digital and vinyl form.
“This album represents the very beginning of our musical relationship as a duo,” Nash said. “Whatever David and I do well together, it’s wonderful that we’re still doing it well. For the upcoming tour, with a rock ’n’ roll band, we’ve gotten fantastic advance response. It’s exciting to be bringing this great new show to people.”
