Graham Nash Announces Extensive 2023 UK Tour
Graham Nash has announced his most ambitious UK tour in many years for August and September 2023. Alongside the 10-date run which takes in stops at some of the country’s most prestigious theatres, including London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Nash will headline Moseley Folk & Arts Festival in Birmingham and the British Country Music Festival in his birthplace of Blackpool. Tickets go on sale at 10am GMT on 14 April here.
The tour coincides with Nash’s first studio album of new material in seven years, titled Now and set for release on 19 May. Now is produced by Nash and longtime touring keyboardist Todd Caldwell.
“I believe that my new album Now is the most personal one I have ever made. At this point in my life, that’s something to say,” notes Nash. The first single, Right Now, can be heard below.
Nash’s remarkable body of work as a member of The Hollies from 1964 to ’68. His contributions to Crosby, Stills & Nashand Déjà Vu have become some of the most beloved in pop music, including Marrakesh Express, Pre-Road Downs, Lady of the Island, Teach Your Children and Our House. Nash’s career as a solo artist took flight in 1971 with two albums further showcasing the depths of his abilities as a singer and songwriter, Songs For Beginners and Wild Tales, which gave us the songs Chicago/We Can Change the World, Military Madness, I Used To Be A King and Simple Man.
Nash’s passionate voice has long been heard in support of peace and social and environmental justice. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts he organized with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt in 1979 remain hugely influential benefit events. In September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which landed him on The New York Times Best Sellers list. Nash is also a renowned photographer and visual artist whose work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide.
