MUSIC NEWS - NEIL YOUNG + PROMISE OF THE REAL confirmed a second leg of the Rebel Content Tour recently. The tour will resume October 1st , in Missoula, MT, and winddown in Berkeley, CA, on October 17. All tour dates are listed below from MNN.
The Rebel Content Tour presents Neil Young + Promise of the Real; Lukas Nelson (vocals/guitar), along with Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals), Anthony Logerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass/vocals) and Tato Melgar (percussion). Neil and Promise of the Real played together at the Bold Nebraska /Cowboys and Indians Alliance event last year along with Lukas and Micah's father Willie Nelson. They had such an instant synergy that Neil invited them to record his new album The Monsanto Years with him.
The first leg of the Rebel Content Tour has drawn a truly overwhelming response to Young + Promise of The Real's amazing energy. Ranging from solo acoustic, to full band acoustic, to full on raging rock jams these 2-to-3 hour, ever changing "dream set lists" feature material from both The Monsanto Years and Young's entire catalogue and have left audiences enthralled:
"The ever-evolving ruby in the dust is back this summer, playing a mix of old and
new songs with an enthusiastic backing band that includes the sons of the legendary
Willie Nelson. The group unleashed a blistering 22+ song set that had a little something
for everybody. Unlike those of some of his contemporaries a Neil Young concert
never feels like a "greatest hits" money grab. Even when he's playing his classics,
he invests them with the same passion and intensity that has drawn fans to him throughout
his long career." -- Relix
