Crosby, Stills and Nash kicked off their World Tour 2015 on Thursday night at Tokyo International Forum in Tokyo's Yurakucho district. It was their first performance in Japan in 19 years.

The tour will hit The Philippines, Singapore, the US, the UK and eight continental European countries. So far 41 dates have been announced.

The trio and backing band packed the 5,200-seat Hall A of the Forum. They opened with "Carry On," the lead track from the 1970 album Déjà Vu released by Crosby, Stills and Nash and Young.

The band also played its classics "Our House," "Long Time Gone," "Helplessly Hoping," "Guinevere." Almost Cut My Hair," and "Wooden Ships."

The crowd erupted when Graham Nash introduced Jackson Browne and the duo performed "Crow on the Cradle," the b-side to Browne's 1982 hit single "Somebody's Baby."

Browne is the midst of his own world tour and will play dates in Tokyo six days after the CSN shows. Promoter Udo Artists Inc. is handling both tours.

Crosby, Stills and Nash joined forces in 1969 after the trio left their former bands The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies, respectively. They have recorded and toured on and off with Neil Young and released five albums as Crosby, Stills and Nash.
