Neil Young recently played his first Crazy Horse shows in four years and revealed that he has "four or five" unheard Crazy Horse albums that are "ready to come out." Now, as JamBase points out, he has announced a short summer solo tour that hits St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, and Boston. Neil shared the following message about playing each of these four cities:

Chicago- (2 shows) At the Chicago Auditorium Theatre, 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…

Detroit- At the beautiful [Fox Theatre], 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 Chessmate Club on Livernois and wrote songs in the White Castle across the street; where I played the Masonic Hall with CSNY’s first tour…

St. Louis- Appearing at the incredible Fox [Theatre] 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 green folks from St. Louis in the Audience…It’s a soulful and beautiful city…

Boston- (2 shows) One of my first solo shows was in the Wang Theatre, then called the Music Hall. It’s a real beauty folks- a chapel of soul and music. … The audiences in Boston are unlike any other. Every city has its own feel. … My Dad came and watched me play there once. Memories are everywhere in Boston…
