The Ferguson Center has been red hot when it comes to oldies shows recently. ZZ Top, Smokey Robinson, Darlene Love and Joan Jett have all played the Newport News theater in 2013. With today's announcement that Crosby, Stills & Nash are coming in March, it looks like the momentum will continue.
The quintessential 1970s mellow rock act will play the Ferguson Wednesday, March 5, staff at the theater announced. Tickets, $68-$100, go on sale 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 16, through the Ferguson Center for the Arts website.
"More than four decades since CSN first harmonized in Laurel Canyon, and played its first-ever concert as a trio at the legendary Woodstock festival, its members continue a creative partnership that is one of the most influential and enduring in music," a news release below reminds us. "David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times—with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and a second time with The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Hollies, respectively."

- David Crosby undertakes a solo tour in the U.S. in January and February in support of CROZ, his first solo release in 20 years. The album will be released January 28 on Blue Castle Records, the label Crosby and Nash founded in 2011.
- Stephen Stills recently toured with The Rides, his blues-rock trio with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg; their album Can’t Get Enough was released last summer. Carry On, a 4-CD box chronicling Stills’ career—produced by Nash and Joel Bernstein—also came out in 2013.
- Graham Nash recently wrapped a solo tour—followed by an ongoing book tour for his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life, published in September by Crown Publishing Group. Nash also exhibited his artwork and photography throughout 2013.
