Neil Young has announced six solo theater dates for this summer, hitting St. Louis, Detroit, Chicago, and Boston. Young posted the dates on his official neilyoungarchives.com website, and wrote about his history with the venues he’s be hitting in St. Louis, Detroit, and Chicago. For the Fabulous Fox Theatre show in St. Louis, Young wrote: “Appearing at the incredible Fox Theater again! I can’t believe my luck that I am going back into that dressing room with all the signatures on the walls and onto that beautiful stage with all the great folks from St. Louis in the audience. My old friend Joe, who drove Greene & Stone’s limo, was from this town. They managed Buffalo Springfield. It’s a soulful and beautiful city. I do look forward to seeing it again.”

He went on to write: “At the Chicago Auditorium Theater, the same theater where we played one of our first CSNY gigs, just before Woodstock; where I played Tonight’s The Night in 1973. I have played Chicago many times since then, had big times in so many halls and stadiums and this one will be like coming home. I hope all the folks we want to hear me will be there.”

  • Young wrapped things up by posting: “At the beautiful FOX Theater, lovingly restored by my friend, Dick Kughn and his friends who love Detroit so much. The Motor City, where I first recorded with the Mynah Birds on Motown in 1965, where I appeared in a Hootenanny at the Chessmater Club on Livernois and wrote songs in the White Castle across the street; where I played Masonic Hall with CSNY’s first tour, and where I have so many great friends at Ford.”UPDATED: Neil Young tour dates (subject to change):
