Dates Announced for Nashville Concerts

ryman.gifNeil Young will play for five nights at the original Grand Ol Opry in Nashville's Ryman Auditorium Aug. 15-19, according to reports from Live Daily.

The historic Grand Ol Opry was built in 1892 and hosted the Grand Ole Opry radio show starting in 1943. The Ryman found its identity as the "Mother Church of Country Music".

The concerts will be filmed by Jonathan Demme.

And Neil history will happen.

UPDATE July 29: A RUSTie named Brack reports that the concerts are invitation only and no tickets will be on sale. More on Ryman Nashville Concert Ticket Rumors.

Hi, my name is Tia and my e-mail is I am so new here but I am a very big fan of Neil Young and any info you can give me ASAP would be great. Like anywhere you go, New School, or meet new people. Well, that is how I feel here. So, as a die hard Neil Young Fan. I would like to be kept updated on this concert. I cant miss this one. I live in LINY but i will travel to the moon to see him. And also, I have been a fan of his since I was 11, yes, i love Rock and Roll then, and i still haven't changed, and my ultimate singer has always been Neil Young. Thanks, Tia

Thrasher, Thanks for the great work you do informing the Neil Young community. I can't believe it's been 32 years since I saw Neil Young on the "Time Fades Away" Tour in St. Pete.(I was just 15) I live in Jacksonville but will gladly drive to Nashville to see him. He's a living legend. Any info on tickets to his August shows will be very much appreciated. Peace and Love, TerryDavid

I live in North Alabama, just under 2 hours from Nashville. As I understand, Neil has rented a rehearsal hall for the week preceeding the Ryman shows.They are keeping a tight lid on this one and I've been trying to get information for the past 3 weeks, without success.

I have been a die hard since very youg, and i have read up alot of him and how he goes in to isolation with his family. Guilt got the best of him when a second child from pegi also has celebral Palsy, and Carrie Snodgrass has zeke and his is mild. That is the reason i really gotten to him. there is notihing more sexier that a man who really love his kids and who "taking care of the invoroment" is so important. He can look at situation, like one he done a guy came up to the kid who wanted to shake his hands and the the security became abusive when he saw it. I mean i dont blame the security because he could have a gun, knife etc. but it was the way he treated a fan of Neil. The fact the his concentration is to have a better world for his kids, and one day their kids.
peace, Tia
