David Crosby Reveals Plans for Tour in Support of New Solo Album, "Croz"

Photo: Eleanor StillsDavid Crosby recently announced that he'll hit the road in late January for a U.S. tour to support Croz, his first solo studio album in 20 years.  The 72-year-old singer/songwriter shared details about his plans for the trek with Rolling Stone.

Crosby reveals that the upcoming shows will be comprised of two sets, with the first featuring a full performance of his new album, which is due out on January 27.  The second set will see the folk-rock legend dig into his back catalog, including songs from his years with Crosby, Stills & Nash, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as from his solo career and his duo recordings with Graham Nash.

While the initial tour announcement reported that Crosby also planned to perform some of Byrds material, he tells Rolling Stone he's not sure yet if he'll include songs from his famed 1960s group in the concerts.

"That's reaching pretty far back," he maintains.  "I won't do that unless there's a song that really thrills us, and there's a couple [of Byrds tunes] that might work.

Of course, fans can expect to hear a number of popular CSN and CSNY songs, although David says there's one classic that he intends to leave off of his set lists.

"People expect me to play 'Almost Cut My Hair,' and so I'm not gonna play it," he declares.

One project Crosby says he's particularly excited to revisit for the upcoming shows is his first solo effort, 1971's If I Could Only Remember My Name.  "I'm very tempted to play 'Laughing,' 'Tamalpais High,' 'Cowboy Movie' and 'Music Is Love,'" he reveals, while noting, "Some things on that record are pretty un-performable."

Crosby's tour kicks off January 28 with the first of three scheduled shows at New York City's City Winery and is plotted out through a February 23-25 engagement at The Troubadour in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, David tells Rolling Stone that after CSNY's recent reunion performances at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit, he hoping the quartet will hit the road later in 2014.  He points out, however, that Young is the deciding factor.

"I would dearly love for it to happen, but it's not up to me.  I'm not in charge," Crosby says.  "I do think there is more music to be made, really good music."
