Stephen Stills, Judy Collins 2018 Tour: Update

Stephen Stills and Judy Collins

When Stephen Stills and Judy Collins toured together in 2017, we wrote: “The only lingering question is what took them so long, and will they perhaps consider doing it again.” The pair even recorded a 2017 album, Everybody Knows, their first together.

They enjoyed themselves so much, they’re doing it again in 2018, with several dozen dates scheduled for May and June. (Last year’s tour numbered well over 40 dates.) The veteran performers have even set up their own website.

In 2011, Collins published her memoir, Sweet Judy Blue Eyes: My Life in Music. The title was, of course, a pun on the song “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” which appeared on Crosby, Stills and Nash’s 1969 self-titled debut. The classic rock song’s title famously refers to Stills‘ then-girlfriend, the aforementioned Miss Collins. When the song was officially released, Stills was just 24 years old; the blue-eyed Collins was 30.

Collins, who turned 79 on May 1, first gained attention in 1967 with her Top 10 single “Both Sides, Now,” written by Joni Mitchell. She’s earned two other Top 20 singles: a 1970 version of “Amazing Grace” and a 1977 re-release of Stephen Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns.” She recently published another book, Cravings, which is described as a “no-holds barred account of her harrowing struggle of compulsive overeating and the journey that led her to a solution.” Stills turned 73 on January 3.

From our review last August: “[Collins] not only remains radiant but still possesses a singing voice that is golden; she reaches her soprano range effortlessly and conveys pure emotion in every utterance.

“Keeping his guitar solos concise and taut, Stills’ singing, for the most part, was less gravelly and more controlled here than it was during CSN’s final years.”
