Even at he ripe old age of 64, the ever perplexing Neil Young still cant get enough of his twisted road. Several sources, including Sugarmtn.org which is devoted to Neil Young tours have reported the addition of at least three dates to the aging rockers itinerary.
The extra dates will take the week-old tour, which started with just four stops, to the Pacific Northwest for shows in Portland, Seattle, and Calgary come mid-July. Tickets for the new dates have not been posted on Ticketmater.com, but venues in Portland and Seattle have the event listed on their websites. Brenda Costa, who is the assistant manager at Calgarys Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, cannot confirm the show on July 24th, and inquiries to Youngs publicity have not been addressed.
Those with enough dough to get into the intimate shows, which feature just Young on acoustic and electric guitar, piano, and pump organ, will be treated to a mix of old and new tunes. A 17-song setlist for last nights show at Nashvilles Ryman Auditorium was devoid of any classic cuts from his 1972 masterpiece, Harvest, but did mix dusty songs like Helpless with Leia, Peaceful Valley, and other brand new cuts.
We can only hope that he keeps adding dates to the tour, but for now you can check out one of his brand new songs, Love and War, and try to get tickets on Ticketmaster.com.
