Neil Young continues to expand his 2014 tour schedule with newly announce winter dates in Canada and summer European make up dates with Crazy Horse.
According to a news article posted Dec. 9 at RollingStone.com, the legendary Canuck singer-songwriter will return home to perform four January benefit shows and will also reunite with his “on again-off again” backing band Crazy Horse to play European make up shows later in the year, which were cancelled over the summer due to a hand injury suffered by guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro.
Dubbed the "Honor the Treaties" concerts, the Canadian shows will raise funds for Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defence (AFCN) to help the northern Alberta aboriginal band in their fight to preserve their land from oilsands development.
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.
Tickets go on sale Fri. Dec 13 with seats ranging from $59.50 to $269.25 (fees included), depending upon seat, city and venue.
