Neil Young tour Incorrect uncut info

Post by daveeliver » Tue Dec 11, 2012 10:38 am

Sorry incorrect info printed in Uncut

Strong sense of deja vu here. These are the 2008 dates; before Ben Keith passed away. Ooops - sack the editor :-D


Neil Young has announced a series of UK tour dates for next March.

The singer, who this week is finishing up his North American tour with a six night stint at New York's United Palace, has revealed that he is to play eight shows in the UK from March 3 - including five nights at London's Hammersmith Apollo.

Young's current tour has seen the singer perform with the musicians who worked on his latest album 'Chrome Dreams': Ben Keith (pedal steel, dobro), Ralph Molina (drums) and Rick Rosas (bass).

Young will also be playing two nights in Paris, at Le Grand Rex on February 14 and 15.

Tickets for the UK shows go onsale Friday (December 14) with tickets from £55 - £75.

Neil Young will play:

Edinburgh, Playhouse (March 3)
London, Hammersmith Apollo (5/6/8/9/11)
Manchester Apollo (11/12)

Le Grand Rex in Paris is a great venue...a cosy theatre with comfortable seats (I saw the Brian Wilson Band there in June 2007). Pity Neil is there in mid-February!

Sorry John - this article is from 2007. It relates to his 2008 tour - I know, because I was there! :D

(Plus, if you need any more proof, Ben Keith sadly passed away in 2010...)

Neil is playing the O2 on the 17th June with Crazy Horse.

Certainly crazy programming that it is so close to when Leonard is playing there and that both are going on sale within days of each other; still what do promoters care about fans! :neutral:

From http://www.stereoboard.com/content/view/176509/9
"Neil Young 2013 UK Tour Dates are as follows:

June 10th - Newcastle Metro Radio Arena
June 11th - Birmingham LG Arena
June 13th - Glasgow SECC
June 15th - Dublin RDS Arena
June 17th - London O2 Arena

Neil Young Tickets are on sale from 9am on Friday 14th December, priced from £45.00 + fees."

Great show if you are a fan of what Neil does with Crazy Horse ...be prepared for loudness though (I confess to using "musician earplugs")... many long jams such as

Walk Like A Giant

...mostly electric but this new acoustic one was a highlight
Singer Without A Song

... regarding promoters and scheduling - last month, I saw Dylan with Mark Knopfler one week, Neil the next, Leonard scheduled for 3 weeks later ...
