NEIL YOUNG WITH CRAZY HORSE
ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR
There have been a few whispers lately...the words 'Neil Young' and 'Crazy Horse' have been coupled tantalising with the word 'tour'. In the know fans have seen news about shows overseas and waited with growing anticipation for the official word.
So it is with no small amount of delight that The Frontier Touring Company and a day on the green confirm the return of Neil Young with Crazy Horse for a series of arena and winery shows in March 2013.
With one show only in each location, the tour is one of Neil Young's most extensive yet with shows in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and two special a day on the green shows in the Surf Coast Geelong and Hunter Valley.
The tour will be Neil Young and Crazy Horse's first headline tour since 2003's critically acclaimed Greendale shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Crazy Horse, comprised of Billy Talbot (bass), Ralph Molina (drums) and Frank "Poncho" Sampedro (guitar), was recently described by Neil Young in his autobiography as "a vehicle to cosmic areas that I am unable to traverse with others."
The March 2013 shows promise to showcase both new material from their recently released album 'Psychedelic Pill' (out now through Warner) and the classic hits that helped make Neil Young a household name. Without a doubt the critical acclaim surrounding the tour dates so far illustrates just how Neil Young continues to pull massive crowds five decades into his impressive career.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote of Neil Young and Crazy Horse's October Hollywood Bowl concert; "The made-for-each other singer and band seamlessly meld old and new amid a relentless, outstanding torrent of beautiful noise" while the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted "this tour serves as a reminder of how [Neil] became the Godfather of Grunge, and going on 67, he will still out-grunge anyone who gets in his path."
The LA Times' glowing review painted vivid pictures, including that of Neil Young "hunched over his Gibson electric guitar - known affectionately as "Old Black" - strangling notes out of its neck while standing in front of a Fender amp as big as the Ritz."
Don't miss out on seeing Neil Young with Crazy Horse live in concert this March 2013.
Special guest support artists will be announced soon.
