In a musical spectacle that promises to be nothing short of extraordinary, Neil Young and Crazy Horse are embarking on their first proper tour in a decade. The Love Earth Tour 2024 is set to kick off on April 24 in San Diego, California, taking fans on a mesmerizing journey through their iconic soundscapes until the grand finale on May 23 in Chicago, Illinois.

A Decade in the Making

The anticipation is palpable as ticket sales for The Neil Young Archives subscribers begin today, with the general on-sale launching on February 16. This marks the reunion of Neil Young with the Crazy Horse rhythm section of Ralph Molina and Billy Talbot, a musical partnership that traces back to 1968.

FU##IN’ UP: A Live Album Extravaganza

Adding to the excitement, the group is set to release the live album FU##IN’ UP, a testament to their raw energy and connection with the audience. Recorded at concerts last year, Young expressed, “In the spirit it’s offered…made this for the Horse lovers.” This promises to be a musical journey that fans won’t want to miss, capturing the essence of their live performances.

Journey Through Decades

Neil Young’s musical journey with Crazy Horse has seen its share of evolution. From the original lineup with guitarist Danny Whitten in 1968 to the recent addition of guitarist Micah Nelson in 2023, the Love Earth Tour celebrates the enduring legacy of this iconic group. The concerts will showcase the timeless rhythm section of Molina and Talbot, along with the dynamic contributions of Nils Lofgren and Micah Nelson.

The Resilience of Crazy Horse

Despite facing challenges, including the loss of original guitarist Danny Whitten in 1972 and the retirement of Frank “Poncho” Sampedro in 2018, Crazy Horse has persisted. Nils Lofgren, joining in 2018, brought a fresh dynamic, contributing to the recording of three albums over the past four years.
