With Graham Nash about to release his new compilation Over the Years… this Friday, June 29, the folk-rock legend has announced plans for a fall tour of the U.S. The trek gets underway September 19 in Austin, Texas, and is plotted out through an October 13 in San Diego.
Among the other cities Nash will visit are Arlington, Texas; Boulder, Colorado; Salt Lake City, Utah; Portland, Oregon; and Sacramento and Fresno, California. Graham also has lined the first two dates of a planned 2019 North American tour leg, taking place on March 10 in Easton, Maryland, and March 22 in Carmel, Indiana.
On the forthcoming dates, Nash will be accompanied by his longtime backing guitarist Shane Fontayne, as well as by former Crosby, Stills & Nash touring keyboardist Todd Caldwell. Both Fontayne and Caldwell also will contribute backing vocals to the performances.
First up for the 76-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer will be a summer European outing that kicks off Saturday, June 30 in Trentino, Italy, and winds down with a July 31 show in Dublin, Ireland.
As previously reported, Over the Years… is a 30-track, two-CD collection showcases many of Nash’s well-known studio recordings as a solo artist and with his various groups on the first disc and a variety of unreleased demos spanning from 1968 to 1980 on the second. The retrospective also will be available as a digital download and via streaming services, while a two-LP vinyl edition including only the demos will be released on August 31.
