Just the other day I was whinging about missing David Crosby at City Winery last year, fair enough right? Croz was a real good album and I really wanted to see him, because face it, that’s what sobrierity can do for you: your braincells start rejuvenating.
But I was a wiseguy, left it too long, and blew it off and missed it, sad stuff.
But then exciting news… this is from Q106’s website:
” Django CrosbyDavid Crosby has dozens of 2015 concerts lined up with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and now the folk-rock legend has added a run of U.S. solo acoustic dates to his busy itinerary. The 73-year-old singer/songwriter’s trek is scheduled to kick off on June 6 in Kerrville, Texas, and from there will head to Florida and then up the East Coast, winding down with a July 6 performance in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
The outing will include a June 20 appearance in Croton-on-the-Hudson, New York, at the 2015 Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival, the festival founded by late folk great and environmental activist Pete Seeger.
During the tour, Crosby will be performing selections from his latest album 2014’s Croz, and his 1971 solo debut, If I Could Only Remember My Name, as well as songs from his bands CSN, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and The Byrds.
“This is about the songs. The tale telling,” says Crosby about his solo trek. “Taking you on a voyage to my world for a moment.”
Meanwhile, CSN winds down a series of concerts in the Far East with a show this Thursday in Singapore. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame trio then will launch a spring U.S. tour that’s plotted out from an April 29 performance in Lincoln, Nebraska, through a May 20 gig in Wallingford, Connecticut. Then, in September and early October, the group will be playing throughout the U.K. and Europe.
