Crosby, Stills & Nash who are performing in Auckland on Saturday at Trusts Stadium. The trio was hugely popular and culturally important when they formed in 1969 and released their first album. By the time they performed at Woodstock in August of that year, they were joined by Neil Young, which resulted in an on-again, off-again relationship that's been going on for 40 years. The group's trademark harmonies are still influential today.
