"The evening will showcase songs from Stephen Stills' new solo CD and the soon-to-be-released Crosby & Nash CD as well as gems from the group's amazing catalog of hits," manager Gerry Tolman said in a statement Thursday.

The group will perform Aug. 31 at the Kansas Coliseum in Wichita.
Party of two
Fayetteville, Ark. -- Actor Scott Wolf of the former Fox hit "Party of Five" has tied the knot with Kelley Limp, a former cast member of MTV's "The Real World."
The two exchanged vows in a traditional wedding ceremony Saturday at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Fayetteville, Limp's hometown.
"We felt like we just got surrounded by this community of friends," said Wolf, 35.
"It's Fayetteville," Limp added. "It's how it works here."
Limp, 27, now works in television marketing in Los Angeles. She joined "The Real World: New Orleans" in the spring of 2000.
Putting Hope's stamp on Burbank
Burbank, Calif. -- Burbank officials dedicated the downtown post office to Bob Hope on Saturday -- what would have been his 101st birthday.
Longtime publicist Ward Grant said Hope had a lot of jokes about post offices, including one that spoofed his own age.
"He would have said, 'When I was a child, I used to collect postage stamps. I had all nine of them,"' Grant said.
As part of the dedication ceremony, Hope's wife Dolores, now 95, sang two bars of the song, "I'm Going to Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter."
The post office is also honoring the comedian by using the profile of his famous ski-jump nose for a cancellation stamp to mark used postage.
Hope died of pneumonia on July 27, 2003.
Hollywood High's Class of '76
Los Angeles -- It wouldn't be a reunion at Hollywood High School without a few TV stars, and this week's bash celebrating the school's 100th anniversary was no exception.
"I got my first agent here. She saw me in a play," recalled actress Charlene Tilton, who played oil heiress Lucy Ewing on the long-running TV show "Dallas."
Tilton was a member of Hollywood High's class of 1976 and among those at Saturday's event.
Others who picked up a pointer or two over the years at the school include Judy Garland, Carole Lombard, Carol Burnett, Jason Robards, John Ritter, Tuesday Weld, Linda Evans, Stefanie Powers and Robert Carradine.
"We all worked at Central Casting," said Dolly Conlin Parker, a member of the class of '44 who got into the business while still in high school.
"My first movie was 'Tom Sawyer,'" she said. "We filmed it in Malibu."
