Neil Young continues to flesh out 2014 with the addition of a new string of European dates, which the legendary Canuck will perform with his “on again-off again” backing band Crazy Horse.
According to a news article posted Dec. 14 at Thrasherswheat.org, the two-time Grammy Award winner has confirmed several make up dates in Germany, England, Ireland and Belgium, which had been axed by Young and company over the summer when their Alchemy Tour was cut short due to a hand injury suffered by guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro.
Gigs scheduled so far include:
July 10 Live at the Marquee - Cork, Ireland
July 12 Hyde Park - London, England
July 20 Münsterplatz - Ulm, Germany
July 25 Warsteiner HockeyPark - Mönchengladbach, Gemany
July 26 Filmnächte am Elbufer - Dresden, Germany
July 28 Zollhafen Nordmole - Mainz, Germany
August 5 Lokeren, Belgium
More dates are expected to be announced soon.
The "Heart of Gold" hitmaker will return home to Canada for four January solo benefit shows to raise funds for Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defence (AFCN) Fund.
The Canadian tour dates include: Jan. 12 Toronto, ON - Massey Hall, Jan. 16 Winnipeg, MB - Centennial Concert Hall, Jan. 17 Regina, SK - Conexus Arts Centre and Jan. 19 Calgary, AB - Jack Singer Concert Hall.
Canadian jazz chanteuse Diana Krall will appear as special guest on all dates.
Earlier this week, Young released his latest archive entry "Live at the Cellar Door," which the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee recorded live at a six-night stand in late 1970 at a Washington, D.C. club.
