Having already thrilled fans with the news that they will release “AMERICANA”, their first album in nine years, Neil Young & Crazy Horse have announced that they will hit the road this fall for their first tour together since 2004.
“AMERICANA” is a rich collection of classic American compositions, some dating back 200 years or more and each has its own unique history veiled with multiple meanings and relatable, lyrical significance as applicable today as they were in the America of yesteryear. Have a look at the following video links for a view into our past as evidence: Oh Susanna, Jesus’ Chariot (She’ll Be Coming Round The Mountain), Clementine.
Crazy Horse: Young, Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina, and Poncho Sampredo will hit the road to perform for audiences across North America beginning October 3rd and continuing on for two months. The tour will visit cities from coast to coast, including stops to the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Madison Square Garden in New York City, and Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
“AMERICANA” was produced by Neil and John Hanlon along with Mark Humphreys, and engineered byJohn Hanlon with John Hausmann and Jeff Pinn. It was recorded at Audio Casa Blanca by John Hanlon.
Fans purchasing their concert tickets on-line will receive a copy of the brand new CD – AMERICANA, available in stores Tuesday, June 5th , released by Reprise Records.
