An Evening with David Crosby and Graham Nash at Sangamon Auditorium

Legendary musicians David Crosby and Graham Nash will take the stage at the University of Illinois at Springfield's Sangamon Auditorium on Sunday, October 26 at 8 p.m., sponsored by 100.5 WYMG - Springfield's Classic Rock.

Grammy-winning Rock-and-Roll-Hall-of-Famers, Crosby and Nash embark on a tour as "two together." Billed as "An Evening with David Crosby and Graham Nash," this special performance offers a rare opportunity to savor an intimate, harmony-heavy experience with two of rock's most legendary singer-songwriters.

"This is a rare treat for central Illinois," said Bob Vaughn, director of Sangamon Auditorium. "We often have to travel to Chicago or St. Louis to see big-name performers like David Crosby and Graham Nash -- and pay twice the price. The show is selling very well, but we often release tickets that are being held for various reasons. For those who haven't yet purchased tickets, my advice is to call the Ticket Office. The staff will be happy to assist you in placing your order."

Tickets for this event are $52 or $42 and are on sale now. Order tickets online, or call the Sangamon Auditorium Ticket Office at 217/206-6160 or toll free at 800-207-6960. Tickets can also be purchased in-person at the Ticket Office, which is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Individual tickets to all Visiting Artist Series and Family Events are on sale now, and tickets to Broadway shows go on sale approximately six weeks prior to each event. Patrons can receive a discount through the Create Your Own Series option by simply choosing at least five events from the Visiting Artists Series, Broadway Series and Family Events at UIS.
