New Crosby, Stills and Nash Tour - It's a Return to the Magic‏

It's been five decades, but the legends of rock and roll David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash are still taking the stage even at their age, recently adding more dates to their summer flick. The 23 added dates see the guys hitting up 43 amphitheatres and music halls around the nation as they kick off the four month stint next month.

The first month is one like no other, not because the trio of rock veterans who have performed at everything from Woodstock to Filmore East are touring, but because they plan on doing something for the first time - being inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, June 18, in New York City.

It's been a decade since their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, the veteran musicians who penned hits like "Ohio," "Yours and Mine," "Teach Your Children and "Soldiers and Peace" have seen an illustrious career that will continue to rein in awards, acclaim and more. Enjoy the veteran stage this summer with Crosby, Stills & Nash tickets.

It's been a long and withdrawn career for the three mainstays of the group, who from the start developed an innate disguise with each other that initially plagued the group following the self-titled debut. After a brief hiatus that allowed for each member to create solo albums, the '70s saw a return of the trio with CSN, the fifth studio set that nearly topped the Billboard charts thanks to Nash's "Just a Song Before I Go." The album was also the last time the group would productively record and write most of their material without the majority of outside help.

Their politically tinged material allowed their tunes, like "Ohio," and "Teach Your Children," to retain the acclaim and prominence for such an extensive period, establishing them as one of the greatest acts to perform together and the most prolific of the '60s. Supporting Young's adventure with film, Deja vu Live along with the other politically appropriate sets, is now the album du jour with tunes like "Let's Impeach the President," "For What It's Worth" and 'After the Garden."
