David Crosby and Graham Nash have added new dates to their spring tour of the U.S. that kicks off March 25 with a show in Long Beach, CA.
While Crosby and Nash's legendary vocal harmonies will be the centerpiece of the show, they will be accompanied on the road by an ace-backing band featuring James Raymond (keyboards), Dean Parks (guitar), Kevin McCormick (bass), and Steve DiStanislao (drums).
The tour will mix acoustic and plugged-in performances. "Touring with a full band gives us the opportunity to do selections from our catalogue that Graham and I haven't performed live together before," says Crosby. "We will also be introducing some brand new songs we've written, that have never been heard onstage or on record."
Crosby and Nash are also launching their own label, Blue Castle Records, with the first-ever digital and vinyl editions of the live album Another Stoney Evening. The set was recorded forty years ago, in 1971, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. Distribution for Blue Castle is through Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA) in the U.S. and Canada, and Alternative Distribution Alliance Global worldwide. The release date is March 22, and the album can be pre-ordered through www.crosbynash.com.
"This album represents the very beginning of our musical relationship as a duo," says Nash. "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."
