Neil Young said he was planning to take Crazy Horse on a “barn tour,” just a week after responding to fans that he wasn't planning a big tour in the near future. Dates have not yet been announced, but Young's tour plans favors vintage sports arenas over new sports facilities.
In reply to a fan's inquiry, the Canadian rock legend said, “don’t expect anything” in terms of live appearances. “I am not focused on playing," he wrote. "I am taking care of my music.” But in a recent post on his website, Young revealed his intentions to perform “in a couple of months, because we feel like it.”
“We have been looking at booking the Crazy Horse BARN Tour,” Young shared on his website. “Many of the old places we used to play are gone now, replaced by new coliseums we have to book (sp) year in advance and we don’t want to go to anyway. That’s not the way we like to play. It sounds way to (sp) much like a real job if you have to book it and wait a year, so we have decided to play old arenas – not the new sports facilities put up by corporations for their sports teams. Largely soulless, these new buildings cost a fortune to play in.”
Describing those new buildings as “largely soulless” he noted they “cost a fortune to play in." “We don’t like the new rules,” Young concluded, along with a listing of 30 demolished venues and 31 existing venues. “If you are looking for us on our Crazy Horse Barn Tour, we will hopefully be in one of the existing areas. Hope to see you there. News coming pretty soon!”
