Legendary folk-rocker Neil Young is following his late 2008 North American tour with a new leg of dates this spring. The outing begins with a month-long jaunt across Canada from April 6 at Mile One Centre in St. John’s, NL, through April 25 at the ENMAX Centre in Lethbridge, AB.
The 10-city tour has stops scheduled in most of the provinces, including an April 10 concert at Halifax Metro Centre in Halifax, NS, an April 15 performance at the John Labatt Centre in London, ON, an April 20 show at Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon, SK, and an April 23 event at Rexall Place in Edmonton, AB.
Ticket presales for the eastern provinces are currently available through Neil Young’s Web site. Presales for the concerts in Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Alberta begin today, February 24. Public onsales start over the weekend, February 27-28.
The tour is expected to swing back through the U.S. this spring, as well. Young is currently scheduled to hit the States for a May 3 appearance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (Jazzfest) in New Orleans, LA. Concerts in Kansas City, MO, and Omaha, NE, that were postponed in November due to “routing logistics” will be rescheduled for spring, as well.
The Canadian singer-songwriter is continuing to support the studio album, “Chrome Dreams II,” which was released in October 2007 and hit No. 11 on the Billboard 200. Most recently, Young released his live album “Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968” in December 2008, which also figured prominently on the Billboard charts with a No. 40 peak position.
