Neil Young and Crazy HorseAustralian tour March 2013

Neil Young will return to Australia in March 2013 – and he’ll be backed by none other than his legendary trio Crazy Horse.

Last here for the Big Day Out in 2009, Young will play a series of arena dates in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, as well as “A Day On The Green” winery dates in NSW and Victoria. The shows will mark Crazy Horse’s first tour of Australian since 2003’s Greendale shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Described by Young himself as “a vehicle to cosmic areas that I am unable to traverse with others”, Crazy Horse features Billy Talbot (bass), Ralph Molina (drums) and Frank “Poncho” Sampedro (guitar).

The March 2013 will showcase new material from the recently released Psychedelic Pill, as well as “the classic hits that helped make Neil Young a household name”.

This morning’s announcement could rule Young and Crazy Horse out of an appearance at Bluesfest, which claimed this week that “another BIG name [who] might be bigger than Robert Plant” could be included on the bill. Young’s Australasian tour winds up at Vector Arena in Auckland more than a week before Bluesfest takes place in Byron Bay.

Pre-sale tickets will be available to Frontier members on November 14 and 15, from 12pm until the allocation is exhausted. General public tickets will be on sale on November 19, 9am. Tickets via Ticketek.

frontier touring & a day on the green present

there have been a few whispers lately... the words 'neil young' and 'crazy horse', have been coupled tantalising with the word 'tour'. in the know fans have seen news about shows overseas and waited with growing anticipation for the official word.
so it is with no small amount of delight that the frontier touring company and a day on the green confirm the return of neil young with crazy horse for shows in march 2013.

the tour will be neil young and crazy horse's first headline tour since 2003's critically acclaimed greendale shows in melbourne, sydney and brisbane. crazy horse, comprised of billy talbot (bass), ralph molina (drums) and frank "poncho" sampedro (guitar), was recently described by neil young in his autobiography as "a vehicle to cosmic areas that i am unable to traverse with others."

the march 2013 shows promise to showcase both new material from their recently released album 'psychedelic pill' (out now through warner) and the classic hits that helped make neil young a household name. without a doubt the critical acclaim surrounding the tour dates so far illustrates just how neil young continues to pull massive crowds five decades into his impressive career.

the hollywood reporter wrote of neil young and crazy horse's october hollywood bowl concert; "the made-for-each other singer and band seamlessly meld old and new amid a relentless, outstanding torrent of beautiful noise" while the pittsburgh post-gazette noted "this tour serves as a reminder of how [neil] became the godfather of grunge, and going on 67, he will still out-grunge anyone who gets in his path." the la times' glowing review painted vivid pictures, including that of neil young "hunched over his gibson electric guitar - known affectionately as "old black" - strangling notes out of its neck while standing in front of a fender amp as big as the ritz."

Now to ask, why did whatyoutalkingabout leak the info when it could compromise whoever or however he got the info?

I really recommend that anyone who is on the fence about this gig goes to it, he was brilliant both times I saw him when he toured in 09.

He was surprisingly especially good at BDO. He thrived off the younger/rowdier crowd, compared to the older, more inclined to sit, crowd at the SEC. He was visibly upset at the SEC gig that people weren't rocking out ro Rockin' In The Free World ha ha.

i concur - however on the froniter website it looks like there'll be general admission tickets. hopefully this will get the crowd more involved than last time...

Neil is still the best act I have ever seen at the BDO, hands down.

This is so fucking exciting!

Interesting setup in Brisbane:
2 types/prices for GA $159 and $109, so I'm assuming the only seats will be up off the floor area.
and seating A or B same prices as above

berlinchair101

I've seen them 4 times this year in the US, and with each show they keep getting better. The ACL performance a few weeks ago was my favourite show of the year, and I've seen plenty.

An important thing is the new album is full of vintage songs. They are all on his youtube channel if you haven't bought the album. Ramada Inn is amazing live. Walk Like A Giant has gone anywhere between 16 and 25 minutes across the shows I've seen. Best thing he has done in a very long time.

I was planning a trip home to Perth in late Feb/early March, so this tour is fucking great news.

Looking at the map for Rod Laver - standing in the front half vs standing in the back half.
