A Tour Through the Ages

Neil Young fans, rejoice! The iconic artist announces his first tour in four years, the “Coastal Tour.” Kicking off at the intimate Ford Theatre in Los Angeles, the journey promises rare gems from Young’s extensive catalog. With larger venues in the mix, like the Greek Theatre and Hayden Homes Amphitheater, Young is set to deliver a unique sonic experience. Discover the details below.

Unveiling the Setlist

Young plans to delve into the lesser-known corners of his repertoire, steering clear of the expected classics. In an exclusive message to Neil Young Archives patrons, he expressed a desire to avoid the monotony of revisiting the same songs. “I don’t want to come back and do the same songs again,” he shared. “I’d rather be doing these other songs I haven’t done.”

Musical Time Capsules

Among the anticipated tunes are “Song X” from the collaborative 1995 album Mirror Ball with Pearl Jam, the Trans outtake “If You Got Love,” and “Prime Of Life” from 1994’s Sleeps With Angels. Young, a two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, emphasizes the timelessness of these selections. “They’re old songs. But I wake up with them in my head every morning. They apply to my life right now and to everyone’s lives in this era.”

The “Coastal Tour” Itinerary

The tour initially focuses on the west coast, commencing with four nights at the Ford Theatre in Los Angeles. Subsequent stops include the Santa Barbara Bowl, the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Berkeley, and the Hayden Homes Amphitheater in Bend, Oregon. Fans can expect a sonic journey spanning six decades of Young’s prolific career.
