The group embarked on its first tour in 26 years in Detroit in January 2000; the trek went on to gross more than $42 million, according to figures from Billboard sister publication Amusement Business.
Tickets for 10 of the first 11 shows go on sale between Saturday (Dec. 1) and Dec. 8. Additional dates are also expected to be added in the coming weeks.
It's not known whether the group plans to play any new material or if any studio recording is in the works. Neil Young is at work on a new solo album but that set is not likely to see the light of day until late 2002. It's also not clear whether CSNY will be joined by drummer Jim Keltner and bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn to round out the touring band as they did in 2000.
