NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, of Crosby, Stills and Nash, will sit down for a rare Q&A session with a select group of SiriusXM listeners at the SiriusXM studios in New York City.
"SiriusXM's Town Hall with Crosby, Stills and Nash" will air live on Classic Vinyl, channel 26, on Wednesday, October 17 at 2:00 pm ET.
The special is part of SiriusXM's "Town Hall" series, intimate gatherings with iconic musicians and a studio audience of SiriusXM listeners. Previous "SiriusXM Town Hall" specials have featured Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Coldplay, Ringo Starr, Roger Waters, Renee Fleming, Gregg Allman, Usher, Linkin Park, Ziggy Marley and the surviving members of Nirvana.
Hosted by SiriusXM's Earle Bailey, the "SiriusXM Town Hall with Crosby, Stills and Nash" will feature each of the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees answering questions from the studio audience of SiriusXM listeners about their legendary career: from their first-ever concert at Woodstock to the release of CSN 2012, the band's first live performance video in over two decades.
Crosby, Stills and Nash (CSN) begins the final five shows of their wildly successful 2012 tour at New York City's Beacon Theatre beginning October 16th and concluding on October 24th with a special presentation of the group performing its first album in its entirety as the second set that night. That show also marks the conclusion of CSN's extensive 2012 world tour, which comprised more than 80 dates in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, and South America.
Crosby, Stills and Nash collectively commented, "It will be fascinating to hear what questions will be asked. We are looking forward to this event and will be as honest as we can be."
"Crosby, Stills and Nash are icons and musicians of the highest order who have written and performed some of the most important and unforgettable songs of any generation," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "Self reflective, personal, as well as worldly and socially active, their music was the soundtrack of not just a generation but the country as well. And CSN's influence on songwriters and performers has been unmistakable. After all their travels, we can't wait to hear their answers to questions from long-time fans. "
