BEVERLY — Twice-inducted Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame member David Crosby was forced to cancel the second half of his Saturday night concert at the Cabot after being taken ill.
Crosby, who with the supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young sold millions of records, did not return to the stage after the first set, and the rest of the night's performance was cancelled shortly thereafter, as was the band's Sunday night performance at the Criterion Theatre in Bar Harbor, Maine.
A spokeswoman for the Cabot said Sunday Crosby began feeling ill part-way through the first set. She said he believed it to be food poisoning. As far as she knew, he returned to his lodging and was not hospitalized.
The spring leg of Crosby's "Sky Trails" tour was scheduled to finish up with this past weekend's sold-out shows in Beverly and Bar Harbor. The next leg of the tour is set to begin Aug. 11 in New York City.
The Cabot plans to attempt to re-book Crosby. If the theater is unable to do so within a reasonable time, tickets will be refunded, she said.
Singer-songwriter's work with the Byrds and Crosby, Still & Nash – with or without Neil Young – sold over 35 million albums and earned the 77-year-old two spots in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.
