POLL: Neil Young's "LOVE EARTH" 2024 Tour: "Crazy Horse or POTR" ???

Which band for Neil Young's "LOVE EARTH" 2024 Tour?
 (Click photo to enlarge)
Earlier in the week, we posted on a recent "Letters to the Editor | Neil Young Archives | Times-Contrarian", where Neil was asked about the band configuration for the upcoming Bourbon & Beyond 2024 Festival on Thurs., Sept 19.
Neil helpfully replied: "Crazy Horse or POTR".

Now we have put the question to the our rustie grain friends: Which band for Neil Young's "LOVE EARTH" 2024 Tour?
 Which band for Neil Young's "LOVE EARTH" 2024 Tour?

And it would seem that based on early poling results, the  rustie grains have spoken with over 80% in favor of the band Crazy Horse.

Polls are still open. So get out and vote. Stand and be counted.  Exercise your rights to vote your preferences.  This is the most important election of our lifetimes.

Unfortunately there was no option to select "I do not care as long as there is a Neil Young tour". Although my limited European concert experience includes Neil Young solo, the Trans Band, Crazy Horse, Crazy Dogs/Lost Horse (with Rick Rosas replacing Billy Talbot), the Continental and Electric Band and POTR, I have to admit that all of these bands were remarkable in their own right in supporting Neil Young. Unlike other major acts, however, Neil Young never left them to play for themselves for a while and taking a break for himself. Quite the opposite: some of these concerts had their own solo section and I liked it. So that would be something new: The Horse playing a song or two without Neil. With Nils playing second guitar, they couid have pulled it of, "Nils sings Neil" style.

On NYA today in answer to a query:

'Wait 'til you hear the next Crazy Horse album coming in April. I think it will make you happy. It really makes me feel good to hear the Horse in full swing and on into a gallop.'

So a bit different to World Record (I hope).

@ Dionys - funny you would mention.

when we used to do our TW polls we would usually toss in a non-nonsensical option like "its all one song"

maybe we'll have to return to form. folks might think we're serious here or something...

@ Julia - thanks for update. Definitely will be different than World Record.

And thanks for being here!

There's a new feature on the member page of NYA where you can introduce and identify yourselves. Although I am not exactly a fan of generously distributing my personal data on the internet I do make exceptions for things Neil Young. However, the usual contact via the website itself currently does not work with my regular German e-mail address. Any Europeans experiencing this as well?

I don't get the venue choices. Neil said that he sold his catalog so he could do anything he wants. He touring for the first time in years and choose amphitheatres? He doesn't like the sound in large venues like that - what gives?
