Thrasher's Wheat Radio Goes To Europe! Here's the deal

Neil Young & Crazy Horse World Tour
2013-06-02 Waldbühne, Berlin, Germany
2013-06-03 O2 World, Hamburg, Germany
2013-06-05 Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam, Netherlands
2013-06-06 Le Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, Paris, France
2013 Europe Tour Map

Last month, we announced our hope for Thrasher's Wheat Radio Going To Europe for Neil Young & Crazy Horse's tour this summer.

And our readers and listeners have responded with enthusiastic support and encouragement for which we are so grateful. Across Europe we have had offers of concert tickets, lodging, transportation and financial support which has been so wonderfully gratifying to see how much folks really want to help make this happen.

Thrasher's Wheat and is working hard to provide live radio coverage of this summer's Neil Young & Crazy Horse World Tour leg in Europe. The aim is to broadcast live from venues around Europe with fan interviews before the concert and instant reactions and reviews afterwards. NYAS members, Rusties and Zumans, come be a part of the show!

Our plan now is to start with the tour kickoff on 2013-06-02 in Berlin, Germany, then on to Hamburg, Amsterdam, and Paris. 4 concerts in 3 countries in 5 days.

This is something that hasn’t been done before and will be pretty cool if we can pull it off. As you might expect TWRH is a not-for-profit organisation and funding such a trip is a big challenge. Thrasher's Wheat, and others are now trying to raise the necessary funds for travel, logistics, tickets, lodging and other expenses.

Right now, with dates committed, we are looking to the Neil Young community for any assistance. So if you can make a contribution, provide lodging, transit, tickets or any other support, Thrasher's Wheat and would love to hear from you. Reach out to us at We would love to hear from you with your suggestions and support.

The priority item, of course, is tickets. There will be 4 crew members for Thrasher's Wheat Radio needing tickets to 4 shows. Our preference is General Admission tickets. So if you can help us out with tickets for Berlin, Hamburg, Amsterdam, or Paris, please get in touch.

If you have already contacted us, we will be back in touch soon. If your offer to provide assistance is not for a city on our trip, we thank you tremendously and hope that you may be able to pass along your offer to another Neil fan in need.

Let's all make this historic tour coverage happen so that we can bring the music and magic of the Neil Young & Crazy Horse Alchemy World Tour to all of those who are unable to make it to Europe this summer.

This is really all up to you -- our loyal and faithful readers here on Thrasher's Wheat, our radio listeners and the entire Neil Young fan community.

Let's all not be denied.

Come to Dublin for NY&CH on June 15th.

I play in a Neil Young tribute named Harvest (

We are playing the night before NY&CH play.

Send us an email (harvest.neilyoungtribute@gmail) with the names of the people involved and we will put them on guestlist so you can enjoy TWO nights of Neil Young in Dublin.

I will find some (cheapish) accommodation for you too.

I am curious, are the 4 crew member authentic crew members, or are they fans looking for a free ride?

Thrasher!! That is such great news!! I would love to make a contribution to the cause. Will there be a PayPal account or something like that??

Thank you for all you do. And, of course,!!

@Sean - thanks! would love to add Dublin to the journey but the budget will only take us so far. Just getting the 4 shows committed is a major expense.

@anon - "authentic crew members" = 2 WBKM staff (engineer & sound), 1 camera, & 1 blogger.

@Sandy - thanks for the support! appreciated. We'll have more details coming soon. stay tuned.

Just out of interest... Do the guys at WBKM have (or need) permission from Young's camp to record and broadcast the shows? It would be amazing to hear some high quality recordings to supplement those which will appear on Rust Radio.
Roll on Glasgow on June 13th. Can hardly wait!

@Loner - just to clarify -- we're not broadcasting the concerts themselves. We're only providing live coverage before and after the concert. Talking to fans, bringing back the scene to those unable to make the shows.
