Neil Young and Crazy Horse will launch an American arena tour in early October that will run through early December, according to tour dates that appeared on Ticketmaster on Monday evening. There are some gaps between shows at the moment, and it's highly likely that the complete itinerary will be announced shortly. Ticket prices range from $47.00 to over $255 and go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.
Young and Crazy Horse haven't performed a full concert together since their Greendale tour wrapped in March of 2004, making this their longest hiatus since forming in 1969. The group reformed last year to record a series of folk covers for the disc Americana, which hits shelves tomorrow. They have also recorded an album of original material, which should surface sometime later this year. "There are lots of instrumentals, lots of excursions," Young says in the next issue of Rolling Stone, on stands this Friday. "But they're real songs. It has one that's 26 minutes long … [the tour] is going to be [songs from] the past, the present and the future."
Though the bulk of their tour dates are in October and November, Young and Crazy Horse will play the Red Rock's Ampitheater in Morrison, Colorado, and the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in San Francisco in August.
