They say you’ve made it once you play Carnegie Hall, so January looks to be a momentous month for Neil Young. The rocker announced today that he will have a four-day residency at the famed New York venue. Young’s new round of Carnegie Hall shows (his first show at the venue in 1970 became a well-regarded live bootleg among Young fans) will be on January 6th, 7th, 9th, and 10th of next year.
Young’s Carnegie Hall shows will be the first performances he’ll play after last week’s Bridge School Benefit concert in California and a September performance at his annual Farm Aid festival in New York. Young was supposed to go on tour this year with Crazy Horse, but their tour had to be postponed after guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampredro injured his hand.
Young’s last two albums with Crazy Horse, Americana and Psychedelic Pill, came out last year. Tickets for Young’s Carnegie Hall shows go on sale November 4th.
