Neil Young Announces First Shows with Crazy Horse in Four Years
An old group member will be on hand for the pair of performances
Published Apr 24, 2018After spending the past few years making music with Promise of the Real, Neil Young has announced plans to get back together with Crazy Horse, marking their first live performances together in four years.
Young broke the news on his website, revealing that the band will play a pair of shows at Warnors Theatre in Fresno, CA, on May 1 and 2. "First time in a long time, live on stage. No rehearsal," he wrote.
Though it's currently unconfirmed which Crazy Horse members will take part in the shows, former guitarist Nils Lofgren took to Twitter to confirm his involvement. "Beyond honored," he wrote. "Nothing like playing with old friends."
Lofgren's membership in Crazy Horse saw him lend his musical skill to albums After the Gold Rush, Tonight's the Night and Trans, and you best believe he'll be keeping a close eye on his instruments.
Young last toured Europe with Crazy Horse in 2014. In 2013, the band were forced to cancel dates in Europe and North America after guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro fractured his hand.
Young and Crazy Horse last released full-lengths Americana and Psychedelic Pill in 2012.
The great news is I am jumping back in with #CrazyHorse @Neilyoung I will be there . Beyond honored. Nothing like playing with old friends. A friend just reminded me, at this age you can't coast. https://t.co/JO9CZZFzi5— Nils Lofgren (@nilslofgren) April 24, 2018
