Neil Young Announces Summer 2023 Solo Acoustic West Cost Tour

Rock legend Neil Young has announced a solo acoustic tour of the West Coast.

The solo acoustic West Cost tour will be Young’s first tour in four years and will kick off on July 1 at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles and conclude on July 23 at the Oxbow RiverStage in Napa, California. Chris Pierce will open every show.

Young unveiled the news on Zoom to paid Patron subscribers to the Neil Young Archives, noting that the tour will focus on songs he’s never played live.

“I don’t want to come back and do the same songs again,” Young said via Rolling Stone. “I’ll feel like I was on some sort of carnival ride. I’d rather be doing these other songs I haven’t done. … I won’t have to compare how I’m doing ‘Heart of Gold’ to [how I played it in] 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010, 2020.”

The general ticket on-sale begins June 14 at 10:00 AM.
