CSN

Crosby, Stills and Nash have an extensive amount of upcoming international tour dates for 2012, including a Northeast run in June which includes dates in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. None of those shows are in NYC but a few of the NJ shows come pretty close. At the end of the month the band will play Wellmont Theatre on June 26 and 27 in Montclair, Count Basie Theatre on June 29 in Red Bank, and Borgata Spa & Resort on June 30 in Atlantic City. Tickets for the 6/26 and 6/27 Wellmont shows go on sale Friday (3/23) at noon. Ticket info for the other shows is not available yet. All dates are listed below.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Americana
Americana

In related news, Neil Young, who is not currently acting as a member of CSN(Y), he recently announced the release of Americana (due out June 5), his first album with Crazy Horse members since 2003's Greendale and first with the full band (Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina and Frank "Poncho" Sampedro) since 1996's Broken Arrow. That's the artwork above. The album features reinterpretations of traditional American folk songs including "This Land Is Your Land," "Oh Susannah," "Clementine," "High Flyin' Bird," and "She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain." A press release explains the album's concept:

"What ties these songs together is the fact that while they may represent an America that may no longer exist," says a press release announcing the new album."The emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what's going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later. The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written."
Rolling Stone mentions that though Neil Young and Crazy Horse performed live for the first time since 2004 last month at a Paul McCartney tribute in LA (they played "I Saw Her Standing There"), they have no touring plans. Check out the tracklist below.

In more related news, that Buffalo Springfield tour is apparently not happening any time soon.

Isn't Neil Young Canadian? Shouldn't the album be called Canadana?

Kinda lame to do an album of cheesy Americana covers. Was hoping they'd tour at least, oh well.

6:13, no they didn't. They made progressive rock (Yes, ELP) and corporate arena rock (Foreigner, Journey) irrelevant.

I haven't seen Neil live since 1996, because since then it's been impossible to get anything in the first 10 rows for less than 200 bucks. I refuse to sit in crappy seats.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 7:09 AM

That's because Neil has a big problem with America and Americans,but he has no problem with our $$$

Are you all joking with the shit talking of Neil Young and CSN? You all think harmonizing created by Grizzly Bear?
You wouldn't know good music if it was a big dick that slapped you in the face and blind sided you.

Posted by Really? | March 21, 2012 10:34 AM

No 7:06 => Punk rock destroyed the hippies and their remnants, including these clowns. Prog rock, commercial rock, etc. was just the afterglow from the hippies. Punks were the anti-hippies, the first clear anti to the 60s (you'd know that the rest of the 70s were all continuation of "peace and love", if you were there with me)

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 10:35 AM

10:35 - You sound like an ignorant teenager.

Johnny Rotten on Neil Young...

"Yeah, I've always loved his music. He's great, he takes risks all the time. You can't label him. He can do everything. He's totally free."

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 10:57 AM

I heard they will be selling hip replacements and walkers at the merch table for all the geezers.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 11:54 AM

10:57: Nice. I didn't know Johnny Rotten said that about Neil. I do know that he was quite flattered when Neil gave a shout out to him on "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black".

"He's a bitter old twat with a bone up his ass about life in general" Really a poster boy of the whole wasted 60s generation"

Wow, that was easy!

If you really think Neil Young is what's wrong with music, you're a supremely foolish twat. I bet most, if not all, of your punk heroes would agree with me.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 12:38 PM

These same people that try to make it sound like you made that up are probably the same dolts that post "SOLD OUT" or "RIP ______" or some other shit in order to mess with others for their amusement. Wouldn't be surprised anyway.

Go back to listening to the Ramones and the Clash and stick it to the man! Punk rock 4ever dude! Joey and Joe will someday rid the world of Neil Young once and for all, y'know, if they weren't already dead.

Thing is, I like those bands, and I like The Fall more than all of them, but it's such a teenage attitude you're spewing.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 1:22 PM

If you consider punk to be an approach to life, music, etc - then Neil Young is pretty punk... But most people don't understand what punk, at least in America, was and is... Most of you "youngins" were raised on Greenday thinking they are "punk" which is cool. What do you know about Neil Young. Leave him alone. Don't buy the album (which i agree seems to include songs that are kinda boring but you never know what he'll do with them) but don't BITCH ON NEIL YOUNG.

Might I suggest the book Love Goes to Buildings On Fire for those of you interested in where punk came from and what it may (or really, may not) have been "against." I would like to think being educated before spouting off claims might be helpful.

The very claim that Neil Young isn't "punk" shows me I can ignore your opinion . . .

"Might I suggest the book Love Goes to Buildings On Fire for those of you interested in where punk came from and what it may (or really, may not) have been "against." I would like to think being educated before spouting off claims might be helpful."

There are far better books than LGTBOF. The whole book reads like one big Wikipedia article. Great premise, poor execution.

"Please Kill Me" is a far better read. Or just read Wikipedia.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 4:31 PM

For what it's worth I'm Neil Young, and you twats are totally misrepresenting both me and the comment that you have built straw men against. Oh, and this is the first time I have posted here. And I'm Neil Young, did I say that already?

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 5:02 PM

LOL, well I'm not Neil Young, nor do I play him on TV. I do find the majority of his recorded output unlistenable, and also find him supremely overrated. As I find CSN, Radiohead these days, and most of what you people have in your MP3 collection no doubt. So, go ahead and call me a douche for expressing a musical opinion different from yours.

One more thing. Unlike the vast majority of posters on this thread, I was in NYC during the breaking of punk. I don't need to read a book about it (expose yourself much?) as I was there. It was a movement against the entirety of the existing "system" of music, art, politics, etc. My opinion is more authoritative on this subject than most of yours.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 5:18 PM

Hey 5:18, you're a deplorable human being. No one cares that you were there, because you're now a 50 year old square that uses "LOL" seriously.

^ you fail! go read a book about what perspective is hipster scumbag, since that will be as close that you will ever get to it. better yet, read that book while on the bus back to your piece of shit town in asshole, illinois.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 5:44 PM

5:18 you are as clueless and narrow minded as the young clueless Brooklyn vegan people here. Punk, prog, hippie music, new age, dance, Brit pop, folk, blues rock etc have all blended together it's what makes the indie scene today so great. Drop the this was a reaction to that, punks hated XYZ and this sucks BS. Instead of sheltering myself back then I went to it all and loved it. Punk one nite, prog the next and hippie music the next. Glad to see Neil young and crazy horse again but just like back then I'll also enjoy the new up and coming band now.

Go for it people make all you dumb ass comments about me. Yeah Im fucking old but good music keeps me young. By the way Johnny did say that about Neil, he also loves Peter Hammill and christian Vander. Don't believe me look it up.
