Neil Young has been playing with various collaborators and backing bands lately, but he hasn’t performed with his classic band Crazy Horse in four years. That will finally change next week, as Neil revealed on his website. The shows happen May 1 and 2 at Warnors Theatre in Fresno, California, and Neil writes, “First time in a long time, live on stage. No rehearsal.” While he hasn’t revealed the exact lineup that Crazy Horse will have at these shows, Pitchfork points to a tweet from guitarist Nils Lofgren confirming his inclusion.

UPDATE: Rolling Stone reports that guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro will be sitting these shows out for the first time since joined Crazy Horse in 1975.

Neil reunited with Stephen Stills on stage in LA this past weekend. He’s also playing one of Willie Nelson’s “Outlaw Fest” tour dates (the one in Saratoga Springs, NY).

Watch Neil Young and Crazy Horse live in 2012, the same year they released their great album Psychedelic Pill:
