Crosby Stills & Nash will close their 80-date world tour next month with a gala performance of their debut album in its entirety at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.
The date – October 22 – is the fifth and final date of a run of shows at the venue next month (October 16, 17, 19, 20). At the October 22 show, CSN will perform their 1969 debut album, Crosby, Stills & Nash, in full — with songs including “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Marrakesh Express” and “Guinnevere”. This is the first time the band has ever performed an album in its entirety on stage.
“Only recently we were able to play ‘Suite: Judy Blue Eyes’ after 20 years,” David Crosby recently told MusicRadar.com. “Stephen got into a good place and started being able to do it. We tried it by ourselves, then we played it live, and people went batshit. They were literally going out of their gourds. So we thought, Hey, that’s pretty cool. If we could do that, we could certainly do all the other stuff. The suite’s the hard one.”
The group recently released CSN 2012, a 25-song set on Blu-ray and DVD, presenting CSN’s first live performance film in more than 20 years.
