Neil Young has announced a pair of upcoming dates with Crazy Horse, set for May 1 & 2 at Warnors Theatre in Fresno, California. Marking their first time playing live together since July 7, 2014 at Laugardalshöllin in Reykjavík, Iceland, the reunion shows will feature a lineup of Neil Young (guitar, vocals), Billy Talbot (bass), Ralph Molina (drummer), Frank “Poncho” Sampedro (multi-instrumentalist), and vocals from Dorene Carter and YaDonna West, who all toured together from 2012-2013, with the late Rick Rosas standing in for Talbot in 2014.
Neil Young’s website bills the show as: “Fresno. May 1 and 2. First time in a long time, Live on stage. No rehearsal.”
As JamBase notes, Neil Young only performed twice in 2017 (solo concert in Ontario on 12/1 and a set with Lukas Nelson’s Promise of the Real at Farm Aid in September), but has a handful of festival appearances set for this year with the Promise Of The Real. There is no supporting information that indicates more shows for Neil Young & Crazy Horse, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed!
While pre-sale tickets are over, a general public sale will open today, April 24, at 12pm PST via Neil Young’s Archive.
