SINGAPORE - Iconic American folk-rock supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash is set to perform in Singapore for the first time at The Star Theatre on March 19.

Tickets from $98 go on sale through Sistic on Friday (Jan 9).

First formed in 1968, it comprises singers and musicians who were A-listers in the 1960s rock scene. David Crosby was from influential folk-rock band The Byrds, Stephen Stills played in American/Canadian folk-country band Buffalo Springfield and Graham Nash was from popular British harmony group The Hollies.

The group's line-up would occasionally include acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, who first sang and played with the group in 1969. As a quartet, the singers would go under the monicker Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

It is one of the most enduring and popular bands of the Woodstock generation of acts, and played their second live show at the historic 1969 music festival.

Famed for their multi-part vocal harmonies on albums such as Crosby, Stills & Nash (1969), Deja Vu (1970) and CSN (1977), all four members have been inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, both for their own solo work and as part of the group.
