"NEIL'S VILLAGE" WILL ALSO ACCOMPANY THE REBEL CONTENT TOUR, SHARING INFORMATION ON REGENERATIVE SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES AND ENGAGEMENT

August 17, 2015 - (Burbank, CA.) -- Neil Young + Promise of the Real have confirmed a second leg of the Rebel Content Tour which will resume Oct 1st , in Missoula, MT., and wind down in Berkeley, CA., on Oct 17. All tour dates are listed below.

The Rebel Content Tour presents Neil Young + Promise of the Real - Lukas Nelson (vocals/guitar), along with Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals), Anthony Logerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass/vocals) and Tato Melgar (percussion). Neil and Promise of the Real played together at the Bold Nebraska /Cowboys and Indians Alliance event last year along with Lukas and Micah's father Willie Nelson. They had such an instant synergy that Neil invited them to record his new album The Monsanto Years with him.

The first leg of the Rebel Content Tour has drawn a truly overwhelming response to Young + Promise of The Real's amazing energy. Ranging from solo acoustic, to full band acoustic, to full on raging rock jams these 2-to-3 hour, ever changing "dream set lists" feature material from both The Monsanto Years and Young's entire catalogue and have left audiences enthralled:

"The ever-evolving ruby in the dust is back this summer, playing a mix of old and new songs with an enthusiastic backing band that includes the sons of the legendary Willie Nelson. The group unleashed a blistering 22+ song set that had a little something for everybody. Unlike those of some of his contemporaries a Neil Young concert never feels like a "greatest hits" money grab. Even when he's playing his classics, he invests them with the same passion and intensity that has drawn fans to him throughout his long career." -- Relix

"The show started out folkie and familiar and grew in electric intensity and volume as the evening proceeded. Young let the music do the talking. The musicians acquitted themselves with garage-band raggedness and youthful enthusiasm. Young still remains a commanding and often electrifying performer, one of the great instinctual rock artists and guitarists of all time." - The Boston Globe

"The band plays like a younger, scrappier version of Young's own Crazy Horse. Young's ragged and lived in, his voice a haunting yowl that's only grown more honest with age. He wears his rust well." - Detroit News

"Young is incapable of giving a bad performance simply because he's so committed to his music and his unique tenor voice is in fine form." - New Jersey Herald.

"Young has been sounding the alarm about environmental issues for more than four decades now. He's warned us...That kind of honesty has been at the heart of his music. It's the warts-and-all passion that inspires us to hang with Young down any road he wanders." - Rolling Stone

Once again, "Neils Village " an alliance of regional grassroots organizations, advocates and national non-profits will join this leg of the Rebel Content Tour. "Neils Village" will be set up on concourse level at each of the venues and will engage attendees in sharing issues of sustainability and action.

FUTURE OF FARMING TENT:
Focusing on the regenerative power of soil in bioremediation and carbon sequestration and for federal policy reform to advance the sustainability of agriculture, food systems, natural resources, and rural communities.

EARTH ECOLOGY TENT:
Focusing on biodiversity and how the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature and the diversity of wild plants and animals.

BAN GMO TENT:
GMO free advocates for sustainable food and ecological systems, supporting the people's right to know what's in their food and supporting the right for all people to have access to clean food and water.

FREEDOM & JUSTICE TENT:
Collective coalitions of individuals committed to working together to end corporate personhood, the prioritizing of corporations over people and taking a stand for true democracy.

ENERGY & CLIMATE TENT:
Providing "solutions" to climate change, information about actions and promoting social justice as inextricably linked to a healthy environment

NEWS YOU CAN TRUST TENT:
The ultimate newsstand to peruse, turning people on to news publications they actually can trust.

PONO TENT:
While Pono, Neil's hi Res music player and music provider, doesn't directly relate to sustainability, it does relate to quality of life. Pono players will be available for concertgoers to hear the difference for themselves and Pono representatives will be on hand to explain the player's features

Links for each organization participating in "Neil's Village" will be revealed soon.

Additional tour dates to be confirmed.

Any info on the Vancouver show? Will it be the same format as other shows on this tour or simular to the other Honour The Treaties Benefit shows. Tix are not on sale yet. Ticketbastard says they are moving it to a bigger venue.

I saw Neil and the band Saturday night in Berkeley. I was thrilled by their energy and the fantastic music. Many of the songs they pulled from way back! Some were new. The theme of protecting nature and the issues we face today with GMOs was front and center. The crowd seemed to really enjoy hearing the old and new songs.
I am so grateful to have been at the show. I first saw Neil at Winterland many moons ago. His music helped me so much over the years - from Buffalo Springfield, After the Goldrush, Harvest, On the Beach, Zuma, Tonight the Nights', to Greendale and so much more. Add in his movies, activism, The Bridge School, and pono!
I really wish I could thank him personally. I believe he saved my life and I would like to express my gratitude in a meaningful way. I guess I just did!
Thank you Neil for enriching my life! God bless!

I went to two of the shows in California, Santa Barbara and San Diego. I began to regret not getting tickets to the show at the Forum soon after the encore in Santa Barbara! Ironically, F*#!in' Up...The solo acoustic opening appeased the folks who came to hear the mellow stuff, the two hours that followed convinced me that Neil still has that "fire" inside, and Promise of the Real seems to have inspired him, as he no doubt inspired them. The San Diego show really was probably the best concert experience of my life. The all general admission seating, or standing if you chose the floor, provided the true fans of Neil Young the chance to get right down in front of the stage. Usually, the orchestra seats are occupied by the people who can afford them, not die hard Rusties! Taking my 19 year old daughter to that show made it extra special for me. She told a friend she made, who was there with his mom, that this was her second Neil Young show, and she has been listening to him her whole life...literally. She went to the solo acoustic show at The Dolby Theater in LA last year. She had been hearing Neil on my car stereo since she was a baby. Now that this leg of the tour is over, with only the Bridge School Benefit on the calendar, I wonder if there will be anymore shows, a live album or concert film? I really don't want the collaboration with Promise of the Real to be over. I do realize though that Neil will go wherever his muse leads him, and I will follow. Thanks You Thrashers Wheat for keeping us informed and enlightened.

Cheers!

English Rusty
