The Weld Series will feature live releases captured during Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s Weld tour in support of Ragged Glory in 1991. Tracks from a stop in Buffalo are the first up in the new series. Additionally, NYA’s Hearse Theater will host “Sneak Previews” of “songs and clips that you have never heard or seen. These are things that are almost finished and unreleased at this point, appearing at the Hearse Theater unscheduled.” An announcement of each “Sneak Preview” will be posted to NYA and then fans can watch or listen to the track(s) for 24 hours.
Finally, Neil addressed his BARN Tour with Crazy Horse in a post on NYA. “The idea of announcing the tour and putting tickets on sale is questionable and needs to be thought through,” Young wrote as per Variety in regards to the coronavirus outbreak. “We are all super ready to go, and the last thing we want to do is put people at risk, especially our older audience. No one wants to become sick in this pandemic. So here we are together, watching to see how it goes, how long it will last, and how many more of our planet’s people and animals will be affected.”
