Crosby, Stills and Nash brought the audience to their feet when they performed "Denver" at their concert on June 26 at the Wells Fargo Theatre in Denver. "Denver" is a remade version of the Come Up to Denver Campaign's remade version of Graham Nash's original song "Chicago" . In March, Graham Nash gave permission to Colorado activists to rerecord his song for the 40th anniversary of the 1968 DNC in Chicago. That version, "Come Up to Denver" is now a rallying cry for anti-war activists from around the country to converge on Denver for 2008 DNC to protest the war.
Graham Nash dedicated their performance of the song on Thursday to Coloroado Governor Bill Ritter, who was in the audience. No word on what the governor thought of CSN rallying activists to converge on the capitol of his state for the 2008 DNC.
We are so honored that CSN played this song at their concert in Denver. We hope that everyone who hears it will be inspired to help spread the word.
CSN Tour goes through August 9. Catch them in your area!
