Monday's finale to Crosby, Stills & Nash's international 80-date tour may have been one of the more memorable gigs of the group's career. Concluding a string of five nights at New York City's Beacon Theatre, the trio hearkened to 1969, showcasing the first-ever complete performance of their self-titled debut album.

But that wouldn't come until the evening's second set, Graham Nash informed a crowd who seemed almost entirely to hover within a couple decades of his own 70 years. The walking spectrum of graying hair had murmured words like "memories" and "remember" many times as they filed into the gilded concert hall moments before Nash's introduction. Some parents brought teenagers in tow; others settled for telling their seat mates about rediscovering CSN's catalog alongside their children.
