Stage Buzz – Photo Gallery: Crosby, Stills & Nash

| May 8, 2015


Crosby, Stills & Nash proved that they had very little left to prove at the Chicago Theatre on Tuesday night. Opening a hits-heavy show with “Carry On” (from 1991’s Crosby, Stills Nash & Young), the band didn’t interact with the crowd much until Graham Nash confessed he used LSD for the first time in Chicago, followed appropriately with a stunning version of 1982’s “Wasted On The Way.” The 2-plus hour performance was filled nicely with CSN and solo crowd pleasers including a well-received Steven Stills solo moment covering Bob Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country.” David Crosby’s solo spot was tripped-up by technical gremlins on “What Makes It So, ” but Croz still sings like he did when he was with the Byrds, and he salvaged his mini-set with his vocal prowess and adept strumming. CSN wrapped up the night with “Teach Your Children,” (from 1970’s Deja Vu), ending  a near-perfect night at a near-perfect venue.
