After their 4-year hiatus, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young went and delivered one of the most epic concert tours of all time. Right in the summer of 1974, the “Doom Tour” happened.
“There was just so much money on the table,” David Crosby said per Rolling Stone. “And there were sharks all around.” The musician was merely describing the difficulties that the band experienced, and referenced the CSNY 1974 tour as a “doom tour”. While the trio minus Neil Young was getting high and excited about performing, managers and promoters were robbing them unknowingly.
The tour started on July 9, 1974, and ended on September 14 in the same year. Despite all the negativity, the quartet managed to get through the 32 shows with classic performances of “Our House,” “Ohio,” “Love The One You’re With,” “Helpless” and many more.
The video below witnessed CSNY’s final show recorded at the Webley Stadium, with a few highlights also credited to Joni Mitchell and The Band. An estimated 72,000 people were present in the audience, all ready to hear what these American performers got. CSNY performed for more than 3 hours and did not attempt to half-heart the songs they’ve presented; perhaps the reason why the foursome truly was a cut above the rest.
