One of the Baby Boomer generation's favorite American bands will play Portsmouth in July, concert promoters announced. Crosby, Stills & Nash will perform at the nTelos amphitheter Saturday, July 7. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. March 30.
The Portsmouth show is part of a summer tour that begins June 7 in Philadelphia and ends Sept. 29 in San Diego.
Tickets will be sold through Ticketmaster and by phone (800-745-3000). Prices range from $30 to $90. Children 12 and younger are free on the lawn with a paid adult admission.
Not that most of you need reminding, but the band's hits include "Marrakesh Express," "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," "Teach Your Children," "Ohio," "Wasted on the Way," and the immortally dreadful "Southern Cross."
Through the early 1970s, the Crosby, Stills & Nash was incredibly popular, selling millions of albums and playing the biggest halls in the land. Neil Young has been an on-again, off-again member, giving the band a much-needed creative boost at times. He's not along on this tour.
Here's the full press release.
CROSBY, STILLS & NASH ANNOUNCE SUMMER TOUR
Portsmouth’s nTelos Wireless Pavilion on July 7
Los Angeles, CA, March 19, 2012: Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) have announced an extensive U.S. summer tour, beginning June 7 at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia, PA and continuing through the end of September on the West Coast. CSN website members will have access to pre-sale tickets; various public on sales for the U.S. dates begin this week.
CSN return to Portsmouth’s nTelos Wireless Pavilion on Saturday, July 7th. CSN has performed at the venue on many tours and its substantial and enthusiastic Hampton Roads fans, prompted the band’s return again this summer. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the concert begins at 8 p.m.
CSN will be donating $1 from each ticket sold on the U.S. Summer Tour to charity. In addition, special benefit seats will be available for purchase through The Guacamole Fund (www.guacfund.org). VIP packages are also available at www.crosbystillsnash.com.
The players accompanying Crosby, Stills & Nash on their 2012 tour are: Todd Caldwell (organ), Shane Fontayne (guitar), Steve DiStanislao (drums), Kevin McCormick (bass), and James Raymond (keyboards).
More than four decades since CSN first harmonized in Laurel Canyon, and played their first-ever concert as a trio at the legendary Woodstock festival, its members continue a creative partnership that is one of the most influential and enduring in music. David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times—once with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and a second time with The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Hollies, respectively. They have also been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, with the honor recognizing both CSN as a group, and each member as individual solo artists.
CSN’s music first became a cornerstone of rock ‘n roll with the self-titled 1969 debut LP, one of Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.” Ever since—through changing times, various configurations, and acclaimed solo careers—Crosby, Stills & Nash have continued to tour and record as “three together.”
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m., Friday, March 30 through all Ticketmaster outlets, including (www.ticketmaster.com) and by phone (800.745.3000). Orchestra A tickets are $90, Orchestra B tickets are $80, Gold Circle seats are $60, and general admission Lawn tickets are $30, including service and facility fees.
