Crosby, Stills & Nash have just announced a 15-date spring tour hitting five Southern states. The group, who are heading out in June for a string of German and French concerts, kick off their 2013 shows on May 5th at Orlando, Florida's Hard Rock Live and wind things down on May 24th at Montgomery, Alabama's Montgomery Performing Arts Centre. Over the course of CSN's three week U.S. run, the band will make seven stops in Florida, playing shows in Orlando, Clearwater, Sarasota, Hollywood, Fort Myers, Melbourne, and Jacksonville.
Graham Nash explained to us that although he's written hundreds of songs since CSN's original heyday, it's part of the job to hit the stage and play exactly what the people want to hear: "With all due respect, I love 'Our House' -- I wrote it, I love 'Teach Your Children' -- I wrote it; but it was 42 years ago. And I understand that people really love that music and I'm glad about it. And as a matter of fact, we still do both of those songs in our concerts, because we recognize our responsibility to make people feel good."
