With multiple GRAMMYs, Juno Awards and many other notable accolades earned during his illustrious career, Neil Young is one of the most influential musicians of the generation. The New York Times described Rust Never Sleeps as offering “some of [Young’s] strongest songs, both new and old, in performances as fine or finer than those on his recent, partly live record album of the same title,” and said “the intensity of the singing and playing of Crazy Horse, Mr. Young’s longtime partners for electric-rock projects, is as moving as rock can offer.”
John Rubey, Fathom Events CEO, said, “We are proud to present ‘An Evening With Neil Young’ to fans across the nation. Music lovers will get a unique opportunity to experience over three-and-a-half hours of landmark rock n’ roll entertainment from one of music’s most beloved singer-songwriters.”
“Neil Young is a singular talent and an icon of American popular music, and we are proud and honored to support this event, knowing full well how much our members will enjoy it,” said Robert Love, editor in chief of AARP The Magazine. ”I have many fond memories of seeing Neil and Crazy Horse at the Fillmore East in New York City, solo at Carnegie Hall, and have followed his career since Buffalo Springfield.”
