Neil Young launches a North American tour on October 18th in Boise, Idaho, two days after the release of his new album, Chrome Dreams II, on Reprise Records.
Concerts continue until December 13 in New York, and include two nights at the historic Massey Hall in Toronto, Canada, the site of early legendary shows by the eclectic singer-songwriter.
The new album features eight new and two classic Young songs. Recorded last summer in Northern California, musicians include Ben Keith (pedal steel guitar, dobro and other instruments), Ralph Molina (drums) and Rick Rosas (bass), who will all be performing in concert with Young.
Pegi Young, Neil's wife, is opening artist on the tour. She released her debut album last summer, followed by a series of shows in Northern California and New York.
On October 27 & 28, Young will host the 21st annual Bridge School Concerts in Mountain View, California, which also features appearances by Metallica, John Mayer, Tom Waits with the Kronos Quartet, the trio of Eddie Vedder, Flea and Jack Irons, and others.
