Neil Young Announces Solo Tour; Buffalo Springfield Dates to Follow?
Neil Young will re-start his 'Twisted Road' solo tour this spring with shows in 10 cities across the northeast and midwest. The rock legend, who has always brought a strong dose of country into his music -- particularly on his legendary 'Harvest' album -- will be touring in support of his recent album 'Le Noise.'
That album features Young accompanied only by his own heavily processed electric guitar, a set-up he recreates throughout much of the 'Twisted Road' tour. Of course, never one to stay in one mode too long, Young also takes turns behind an acoustic guitar and a piano for various songs.
Young thrilled fans last year by bringing together his first big band, Buffalo Springfield, for a full set at his annual Bridge School benefit concert. The group has already confirmed they will perform at this year's Bonnaroo Festival, and according to Young's bandmate Richie Furay, they will take to the road this fall for a full-scale tour.
