It was 50 years ago that a singer-songwriter named Stephen Stills met singer-songwriter named Judy Collins.

This year, they are celebrating those golden years with a tour that makes a stop Friday, Nov. 2 at the McAllen Performing Arts Center. Brought by the McAllen Society for the Performing Arts, McAllen Live presents “Stephen Stills and Judy Collins: Live in Concert.”

Amazingly, their joint tour marks the first time they have been on stage together and for this tour, they are pulling out their best work, and they will be performing pieces from their most recent album, which was released in summer 2017.

Stills and Collins met in 1967 and dated for two years. Stills wrote the legendary love song “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” a five-section romantic epic. The song is ranked No. 418 in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time poll.

Stills is known for his work with Buffalo Springfield, Crosby Stills and Nash and considered one of the top 30 greatest guitarists of all time according to Rolling Stone. He is the first person to be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame twice on the same night – for work with Crosby, Stills and Nash, and for work with Buffalo Springfield.

Collins has been deemed the “ageless wild angel of pop,” has appeared in HBO’s “Girls” and released the book “Cravings: How I Conquered Food” last year. She is a Grammy-award winner for Best Folk Album and her 2015 “Strangers Again” earned her the highest “Billboard 200” debut in almost 30 years, confirming New York Times’ moniker of her.
