Neil Young Says: "SPONSORED BY NOBODY" + Midwest Solo Shows Coming

via NYA T-C

After several days of high drama surrounding the Hyde Park concert announcement fiasco, Neil Young emphatically states that he is: "SPONSORED BY NOBODY".

The 2019 concert of Bob Dylan & Neil Young in London on 12 July "will proceed without Barclays as a sponsor."

Apparently, the growing #BoycottBarclays movement has caused Barclays "The Dirty Bank" to drop sponsorship. Power to the people, once again.

More details on tickets will be available "soon".

Also, Midwest Solo concerts are coming with a NYA Presale beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 12.

Neil Young: "Its been a massive fuck up!
Subsequently, the NYA team has had many ‘Come to Jesus’ meetings."

So we here at Thrasher's Wheat are thrilled to see Neil once again stand up, speak out and take action. As stated previously, we are totally down with Neil on getting righteous about the rampant unethical promoters and shady dealings.

So thanks Neil and Elliot for doing the right thing.

    To be fair, they responded kindly and expressed sympathy to my confusion.
    nice people.

    Hyde Park - Diamond View £625.00 per ticket - is this for real? Neil may not be doing this for nobody but himself and Mrs Young
