David Crosby says he’s ‘too old’ to tour again

Don’t expect to see David Crosby on stage anytime soon…or ever again.

The former Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young folk rocker, who turns 81 on August 14, thinks he’s “too old” to perform.

The ‘Wooden Ships’ hitmaker made the reveal on social media on Tuesday after a fan asked if there were any tour dates in the works.

“I think I’m too old to tour anymore…. unfortunately,” the singer replied.

In February, Crosby performed live for the first time since 2019 after surprising fans at the end of Jason Isbell and the 400 Units set in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Crosby, much to the delight of enthusiastic fans, performed the hit 1970 track “Ohio” with vocal assistance from Shawn Colvin.

“It was so good to play with people who love him”, Crosby tweeted after the gig.

“It’s been a long time since I played live…Jason and this band are rocking so hard…then he’s just sitting there by himself singing ‘Cover Me Up’ and we’re crying.”

It comes as Crosby joined Spotify last month after a five-month protest by controversial podcaster Joe Rogan.

The folk rocker has pulled his library of songs from the streaming platform in solidarity with former bandmate Neil Young.

Young, the Canadian-American grunge rocker, pulled his catalog from Spotify earlier this year after the Sweden-based streaming company denied his request to fire Rogan over alleged “misinformation” related to COVID-19 vaccines.

“They can have Rogan or Young. Not both,” Young wrote in a letter to his record label parent, Warner Records.
