Neil Young says that he's ready to hit the road again | NYA

A Message from Neil | Neil Young Archives
 (Click photo to enlarge)
In A Message from Neil | Neil Young Archives, Neil Young indicates that he is ready to hit the road again. Maybe starting in July.

From a statement on his two recent appearances with Stephen Stills and Willie Nelson:

"... That made me want to play more. It felt so good to be up there after three and a half years... Maybe in July." 

Neil Young in reply to a letter to the editor on NYA:

"I am looking for outdoor venues. safety for all."

So, we'll just have to wait and see.

Earlier this year, Neil Young said that "CONCERT TOURS are no longer fun".


Hello or Goodbye Neil Young???

Given today's wild legal scalper friendly environment I sure hope he thinks about access for tickets for NYA members and the general public. Shows I've wanted to go to often sell out in three minutes and then, mysteriously, aren't sold out a minute later but ticket prices have at the very least tripled.

Often with these high ticket prices you are sitting in an area with people who could care less about the music and are only there to socialize. It was such a pleasure to sit with the Farmaidians in Raleigh! They were all into the music for sure.

Used to see Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt, Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne every time they came to town but now I either can't get access or just can't afford the tickets. These days house concerts and small club venues are what I like to attend. Caught a fantastic show by Darrell Scott in a barn in Winstin-Salem, North Carolina with a baby grand piano!

I'm looking forward to a time when the United States is looked upon as the hope of the world again instead of the greedy idiots in charge now. Wouldn't it be nice to have our food known as the most healthy in the world which is chased after instead of filled with garbage and a list of unnatural ingredients as long as your arm that you can't even pronounce! I live in an area of the country where scientists have come up with cures for cancer but they can only sell it to NASA and not for the general public since it is a cure. A cure is a bad business plan. What is wrong with these people? "Some human's ain't human," as John Prine used to sing.

Thanks Jim.
Good points here and mostly agree, spot on.
As usual, Prine was spot on too.
Here's hoping we can catch up w/ The FarmAidians @ FA 2023! And Neil too.

So what's the thinking on band? REAL or Horse or hybrid or what???

As expected, Neil changed his mind about a thing, in this case touring.

This is great cause for celebration! See you on the rail in Boise!

My bet is on that Crazy Horse iteration we’d heard rumblings of, with Micah Nelson on board. But as always with Neil, you never know. How great that on the heels of this announcement comes the addition of all timeline concerts to the NYA app! No longer subject to the confines of our rusty desktops, all these classic shows can be taken on the road now.

Im sorry, but WHAT?!? Are you exaggerating?

I’m waiting to see just how all this transpires, without any expectations whatsoever. Neil could change his mind several times before we know anything of substance, and of course, that’s one of the many things I love about the guy. As far as the ticket situation, all I can say is that I hope he offers them to his NYA subscribers first.

Peace 🙏
