Neil Young Plugs In
His late summer tour kicks off August 8 at Virginia Beach, Va., with the Pretenders opening on all dates except the Farm Aid benefit September 17.
Young has already logged plenty of mileage this year, as part of the reunited – and hugely successful – Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young caravan.
This time out, Young is playing in support of his most recent album, Silver and Gold, which was released in April.
Confirmed dates so far are mostly in the eastern U.S. markets, including Hershey, Penn.; Wantagh, N.Y.; Columbus, Ohio, and Atlanta. Young also includes a side trip to his old Canadian stomping grounds in Toronto on August 31.
The tour heads west on September 6, when Young, Chrissie Hynde and company take the stage in Albuquerque, N.M. Young sandwiches his Farm Aid benefit in Bristow, Va., between stands at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver.
