Neil Young Tour Schedule
Neil Young has been a fixture on the rock scene for more than half a century and has firmly
established himself not only as one of the greatest guitarists of all time but also one of the greatest songwriters to have
ever lived. He has written numerous classic songs and released countless legendary albums but the best way to experience Neil
Young's music is by seeing him live. He is known to do mellow acoustic shows as well as hard rocking electric shows full of
feedback, screeching guitars, and meandering solos. Whichever type of show Neil Young performs in your area is sure to be
a memorable one.
Neil Young has a series of three shows set for the end of March and the beginning of April in Los Angeles,
California. On March 30th and 31st as well as on April 1st Neil Young will be performing at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
The Dolby Theatre originally opened as the Kodiak Theatre and has hosted American Idol as well as serving as the home of the
Academy Awards. The chance to see a true musical legend like Neil Young performing at a historic venue like Dolby Theatre
should not be passed up even if you need to travel to Los Angeles to do so. If you can't make it to any of these three shows,
keep checking back on StubHub to see when Neil Young adds more tour dates.
About the Artist
was born in Toronto and grew up in various parts of Canada. His childhood was not easy as he suffered from a bout of polio
and his father left his mother after having several extra marital affairs. At an eraly age he started listening to rock, pop,
and doo wop and was influenced by the likes of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Little Richard, Roy Orbison, and others.
He started playing music on a plastic ukulele, and moved on to a banjo and several other stringed instruments before learning
the guitar. He formed a few bands in junior high and high school before getting work in Winnipeg folk clubs. While working
in the clubs he met Joni Mitchell and began writing some of his earliest songs including the fan favorite Sugar Mountain.
He also scored his first hit as a songwriter by writing the song Flying on the Ground is Wrong for the Guess Who. In the mid
Sixties Neil Young moved to Los Angeles with Bruce Palmer, the bass player for the Guess Who and they met Stephen Stills,
Richie Furay, and Dewey Martin with whom they formed Buffalo Springfield. The band would release three albums before breaking
up and scored a hit with the classic song For What It's Worth. Neil Young then began his solo career in earnest, releasing
his self titled debut album followed by Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere which was his first collaboration with Crazy Horse.
After the release of Everybody Knows This Is Nowehere, Young joined Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and the band was renamed Crosby,
Stills, Nash, and Young and won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 1969. He continued recording solo material and occasionally
collaborating with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and does so to this day. He experienced a bit of a revival in the Nineties as
he was name checked by several alternative rock and grunge bands whose younger fans used that to gravitate to Young's work.
He has released several albums, won numerous awards, and been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in both the United
States and Canada.
After spending years playing in folk clubs in Winnipeg and writing songs
for himself and others, it was not until he moved to Los Angeles and was a founding member of Buffalo Springfield that Neil
Young really made a name for himself. The band scored a huge hit with For What It's Worth which still receives major airplay
on classic rock stations to this day.

to burn out than fade away," in his suicide note.
