Frequently Asked Questions
What songs will Crosby, Stills & Nash play in concert?
Crosby, Stills & Nash has an eclectic catalog of music to pull from, including work done with Neil Young, material from David Crosby’s own prolific solo career, and work the trio accomplished in the form of Buffalo Springfield. This rich musical variety keeps setlists dynamic, innovative, and unpredictable.
The trio, alongside Neil Young, has recorded some of the most popular folk/rock songs of all time. The band brings their set out full swing by opening with two hits: “Carry On/Questions” and “Chicago.” The former song originally debuted as the opening track on the album, Deja Vu. Since then, it has evolved into a longer song which incorporates “Questions,” and the group plays this 7+ minute opus at the majority of their shows.
The group has an impressive assortment of tracks from their 1969 debut album, Crosby, Stills & Nash, with nearly five of them performed at almost every show. Fan favorites from this era include “Guinnevere,” “Wooden Ships,” and “Helplessly Hoping.”
The group also closes most of their sets with their most popular song, “Judy Blue Eyes.” It is an enigmatic track going through various passages, and is extended live with this great sing-a-long and closing barrage of classic rock and roll. The setlist below is a good representation of what you might hear on the current 2015 Tour.

Will I see Neil Young make an appearance?
Despite the band playing a handful of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young recorded material, Neil Young is highly unlikely to make an appearance. The foursome toured together in 2006, marking the last appearance of all four onstage (cleverly mocked by Stephen Colbert on his show as he filled in for Young, dressing and mimicking the artist in a 2007 appearance by the band). There are rumors that Neil Young was to reunite with the trio in 2014, so speculation continues, especially on some of the more high profile dates on the tour.
How is David Crosby’s health?
Recent heart complications has put David Crosby in the hospital and forced the trio to cancel a number of dates including San Francisco and West Hollywood. They have all been rescheduled, so check with ticket retailers for information on newly scheduled dates.
How long is a Crosby, Stills & Nash concert?
The trio has no problem belting out songs for close to two hours, though an intermission is not uncommon. David Crosby, despite being 72 and having recent health complications, has no problem churning out classic tunes for this length. You can feel the camaraderie onstage, and the band will extend songs frequently following each other’s lead and jamming along with the flow of the music.
What can I expect at the show?
Each member of the group has a rather sizable solo catalog, with a respectable fanbase in their own right. But no solo act can turn the stiles as a collective like Crosby, Stills, & Nash. The band is intricately tight and not reliant on large theatrics. Shows seem almost seem to carry a small club vibe, where the band plays their reflexive folk/pop sound without creating and leaning into a forced huge arena rock sound. Fans should expect attendees of all ages, where sons were influenced from their fathers directly on the group. The group also deploys an intimacy and tight arrangement that is quite appealing.
Who is Crosby, Stills & Nash’s publicist and press contact?
Michael Jensen is the group’s current publicist. He has worked with David Crosby in the past. You can contact Jensen as well as his media company, Jensen Communications, at info@JensenCom.com.
How do I get access to presale tickets for Crosby, Stills & Nash’s tour?
Presale tickets are being offered through the CSN fan club managed by MusicToday as well as the band’s official facebook page. Interestingly, followers do not necessarily need to be part of the fan club to acquire presales through Facebook.
“Crosby, Stills & Nash were literally jazzed for their performance…The venerable rock band has been performing together for over four decades, and it’s not surprising that over the years a certain rote quality might have settled in. But delivering a program called The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook featuring their greatest hits as newly arranged by various members of the JALC, they demonstrated a giddy enthusiasm.” – Kimberly Nordyke of the Hollywood Reporter
“If the shoes make the man, then what does that say about Graham Nash, who chooses to perform bare footed as he did along-side his band mates Stephen Stills and David Crosby. It most likely says that Nash is a free spirit, unrestrained by societal norms. It might be a symbol of protest from a man who has written songs such as “Chicago,” and “Almost Gone (The Ballad of Bradley Manning).” It might also be just because it feels really good.”- Ted Hansen of the Examiner
“It is unlikely that any concert in the Milwaukee area on Sunday night inspired more partial and full standing ovations and clapping over audience members’ heads than Crosby, Stills and Nash at the Riverside Theater. Though the trio epitomizes hippie ideals, it wasn’t merely nostalgia that brought people’s hands together and got them on their feet.” – Jamie Lee Rake of Express Milwaukee
