Graham Nash announces first solo Australia/NZ tour in 2024

Legendary musician Graham Nash of iconic bands the Hollies and Crosby and Stills and Nash, to tour Australia and NZ in March of 2024.

Legendary artist Graham Nash, known for his role in the iconic bands the Hollies and Crosby, Stills and Nash, is set to embark on his inaugural solo headline tour of Australia and New Zealand in March 2024, performing at Adelaide Entertainment Centre on March 13th.

With an impressive six-decade career under his belt, Nash will grace audiences with his timeless melodies and unforgettable lyrics in a series of twelve performances, including a special two-day stop at the esteemed Port Fairy Folk Festival. Accompanying him on this musical journey will be his long-time collaborators, Shane Fontayne on guitar and vocals and Todd Caldwell on keyboards and vocals.

In 2023, Nash embarked on sold-out tours in the United States and the United Kingdom, garnering praise from critics and fans alike. The Finger Lakes Times noted, ‘Nash reached into a treasure chest of originals, collaborations, and covers that resonated with everyone…most of the lyrics were so well crafted that their messages have long been an important part of so many peoples’ lives for so many years… His inner voice is true, his songs and lyrics are authentic, and he is sincere.’

Adding to his already illustrious career, Nash released his latest album, “Now,” in May 2023 to critical acclaim. The New York Times described it as, ‘Now feels remarkably content, as if Nash has slipped into a favourite old overcoat to find a cache of new tunes stuffed inside a pocket,’ while American Songwriter praised it, saying, ‘Now could be considered a resurgence of sorts…the material is softly lit and effortlessly assured, conveying the calming and caressing sound that all so frequently added its soothing sobriety to CSN and CSNY.’

Graham Nash has played a remarkable role in the history of rock music, bearing witness to some of its most seminal moments. From the launch of the British Invasion to the birth of the Laurel Canyon movement, Nash has been an integral part of it all. His accomplishments include two Grammy Award® wins, as well as double induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, recognising his contributions both with CSN and as a solo artist.

Above all else, Nash’s enduring legacy lies in the countless songs he has penned, which have become an integral part of the soundtrack of lives all over throughout the past six decades. American Songwriter aptly describes his work as ‘just as significant today as they were when written some 50 years ago.’

Nash’s prolific career began with his contributions to the Hollies between 1964 and 1968, including hits like “Stop Stop Stop” and “On A Carousel.”

As a member of Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes Young), Nash co-wrote timeless classics such as “Marrakesh Express,” “Pre-Road Downs,” “Lady of the Island,” “Teach Your Children,” and “Our House.”

In 1971, Nash’s solo career took flight with the release of his debut album, “Songs For Beginners,” featuring tracks like “Chicago/We Can Change the World” and “Military Madness.” The album also delved into the personal, with songs like “Better Days” and “Simple Man” reflecting on his relationship with Joni Mitchell.

Subsequent solo albums, including “Wild Tales” (1974) with tracks like “Prison Song” and “Oh! Camil,” and collaborations with David Crosby, produced hits like “Southbound Train” and “Immigration Man.”

In his ongoing partnership with CSN, Nash contributed memorable tracks like “Just A Song Before I Go” (1977) and “Wasted on the Way” (1982).

Graham Nash’s upcoming tour promises to be a celebration of his career, a journey through rock history, and a testament to his talent as a singer-songwriter.
