Neil Young has had a busy week, calling out the president and now revealing plans to bring his Crazy Horse band to “old barns” around the country.
“Many of the old places we used to play are gone now, replaced by new coliseums we have to book year in advance and we don’t want to go to anyway,” the legendary rocker wrote on his Neil Young Archives website.
However, Young notes that the remaining arenas from his touring tenure – like Madison Square Garden, Nassau Coliseum, Long Beach Arena, Cow Palace, Chicago Arena, Nashsville Municpal Auditorium and more – are on the table for a full Crazy Horse tour.
Young doesn’t reveal much more in the note, but promises “news coming pretty soon!”
This story is still developing…

CRAZY HORSE BARN TOUR
We have been looking at booking the Crazy Horse BARN tour. Many of the old places we used to play are gone now, replaced by new coliseums we have to book year in advance and we don’t want to go to anyway. That’s not the way we like to play. It sounds way to much like a real job if you have to book it and wait a year, so we have decided to play the old arenas – not the new sports facilities put up by corporations for their sports teams. Largely soulless, these new buildings cost a fortune to play in. We wanted to play in a couple of months because we feel like it. To us it’s not a regular job. We don’t like the new rules…
If you’re looking for us on our Crazy Horse Barn Tour, we will hopefully be in one of the existing arenas. Hope to see you there. News coming pretty soon!
