Neil Young will release a new album with Promise of the Real, the band featuring Willie Nelson's sons Lukas and Micah, called The Monsanto Years, on June 16. The album criticizes Monsanto, a corporation which genetically engineers seeds that Neil has spoken out against for years.
Neil and Willie's sons are also going on a tour together in support of the album. A few dates will be opened by Band of Horses, including the NJ show on July 16 at Susquehanna Bank Center. They also play Bethel Woods on July 17 (where Woodstock was located) (no opener announced), and Jones Beach on July 21 with Norah Jones' country band Puss 'N' Boots. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (4/24) at 10 AM, and the Jones Beach show has a Ticketmaster presale starting Thursday (4/23) at 10 AM.
All dates are listed, with a video of Neil playing with Lukas Nelson at a recent show, below...
