Acclaimed American folk rock ‘n’ roll songwriter David Crosby is headed to Iowa’s capital city this November.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, known for his solo work and as one-third of iconic 1960s and 1970s California outfit Crosby, Stills & Nash, is bringing the “David Crosby & Friends” show to Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines on Nov. 1, a Hoyt Sherman Place news release said. The show is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
Tickets to see the former Byrds member go on sale Aug. 10 at noon via ticketmaster.com, the Hoyt Sherman Place box office (1501 Woodland Ave.) or via phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets start at $49.50, with the top ticket going for $85 before fees.
The show comes in support of Crosby’s latest studio effort, “Sky Trails.” The album, set to be released Sept. 29, was produced by Crosby’s son, James Raymond. Two songs — “Sell Me A Diamond” and “She’s Got To Be Somewhere — have been released thus far, writes Rolling Stone.
“His third solo album in four years,” the news release said, "will be released only one year after Crosby’s critically acclaimed album 'Lighthouse,' which Rolling Stone says is his ‘finest solo album since his melancholy 1971 masterpiece “If I Could Only Remember My Name."'"
