Neil Young Announces Summer 2018 Solo Dates
Legendary performer Neil Young has detailed a series of six solo shows in four cities spanning June 28 – July 12. Young recently revived Crazy Horse and has now announced his first multi-night run of solo performances since 2014.
Neil confirmed the run via his Neil Young Archives website. Up first is a performance at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis on June 28. “Appearing at the incredible Fox Theater again! I can’t believe my luck that I am going back into that dressing room with all the signatures on the walls and onto that beautiful stage with all the great folks from St. Louis in the audience,” Young wrote on his site. “My old friend Joe, who drove Greene & Stone’s limo, was from this town. They managed Buffalo Springfield. It’s a soulful and beautiful city. I do look forward to seeing it again.” Tickets are on sale here using “NYARCHIVES” as the password.
The tour continues in Chicago at the Auditorium Theatre on June 30 and July 1. “At the Chicago Auditorium Theater, the same theater where we played one of our first CSNY gigs, just before Woodstock; where I played Tonight’s The Night in 1973. I have played Chicago many times since then, had big times in so many halls and stadiums and this one will be like coming home,” Neil wrote about the two shows in the Windy City. “I hope all the folks we want to hear me will be there.” Tickets for the June 30th are available here and for July 1st here.

Detroit’s Fox Theatre hosts Neil Young on July 3. “At the beautiful FOX Theater, lovingly restored by my friend, Dick Kughn and his friends who love Detroit so much,” said Young in his post on NeilYoungArchives.com. “The Motor City, where i first recorded with the Mynah Birds on Motown in 1965, where I appeared in a Hootenanny at the Chessmater Club on Livernois and wrote songs in the White Castle across the street; where I played Masonic Hall with CSNY’s first tour, and where I have so many great friends at Ford.” The presale for Neil’s visit to Detroit is underway via Ticketmaster using “NYARCHIVES” as the password.
The tour is currently slated to end at the Wang Theater in Boston on July 11 and 12. “One of my first solo shows as in the Wang Theater, then called the Music Hall. It’s a real beauty folks – a chapel of soul and music,” wrote Neil of his upcoming performances in Boston. “I hope it still sounds as good as it deid then and that I do too! I can’t wait to get there and find out.” A Neil Young Archives pre-sale using the code “NYARCHIVES” is currently underway via Ticketmaster. Head here for the 11th and here for the 12th.
