Crosby, Stills and Nash hit the road again tonight (July 2), kicking off its summer tour in Bethlehem, Pa.
The trio will be on the road into early October and is, ironically, promoting a new Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young archival project, "CSNY 1974," a document of the supergroup's famed tour that comes out July 8.
Graham Nash, who co-produced the set, tells us that while he's always happy to be out with David Crosby and Stephen Stills, he's hoping "CSNY 1974" might prod Neil Young to return to the fold for some shows in the near future:
"We had talked about it...Obviously in the normal way of doing things we would have brought the album out and then gone out to support it. We had talked about that, roughly, but what happened is that Neil had booked two European tours, and then Poncho (Sampedro), the rhythm guitar player from Crazy Horse, broke his wrist and Neil had to cancel those two tours. So in the time...when in August and September we would have considered going out as CSNY, Neil had to replay the two tours that he canceled, and that took up that time. So this is my dream...in 2015 I want CSNY to go on a world tour...because not only do we have the choice of those 40 songs (on 'CSNY 1974') that we had just put out but look at what we've written in the last 40 years. We could do an incredible show."
CSNY last worked together for Young's 2013 Bridge School Benefit Concerts last October near San Francisco.
"CSNY 1974" is coming out as a three CD/one DVD box set and as a single CD. CSN is planning to finish a covers collection it began recording a couple years ago, while Crosby and Nash are planning to compile their collaborations with other artists onto an album for charity.
