Neil Young & Promise of the Real confirm Irish dates in 2016

Ever the voice of the embattled objectors, it’s unsurprising, but very cool, that Neil Young has confirmed two Irish dates with backing band Promise of the Real for 2016. Made up of Willie Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah, the band performed on Young’s 36th studio album The Monsanto Years (two guesses as to what that refers to..) and subsequent tour, so prepare for a fresh injection of politically charged folk-rock and a hell of a good time. After all, who doesn’t like Neil Young? Pipe down, PONO purchasers of years gone by…

Young and friends will play Belfast’s SSE Arena on June 7th 2016 and Dublin’s 3Arena on June 8th 2016, with tickets available here from Friday.
