Neil Young announces support acts

The Drones, Husky and Shane Howard will all support Neil Young at various dates on his Australian tour in March.

Last here for the Big Day Out in 2009, Young will play a series of arena dates in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, as well as “A Day On The Green” winery dates in NSW and Victoria. The shows will mark Crazy Horse’s first tour of Australian since 2003’s “Greendale” shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Described by Young himself as “a vehicle to cosmic areas that I am unable to traverse with others”, Crazy Horse features Billy Talbot (bass), Ralph Molina (drums) and Frank “Poncho” Sampedro (guitar). Their most recent album, Psychedelic Pill, was described by FL as another worthy addition to their back catalogue: “This is an album that feels eminently real, and from the heart and soul of four musicians who respect, honour and follow the song wherever it may take them.”
