Neil Young will embark on a solo tour that will kick off April 15 in North Carolina, and conclude May 7 in Chicago. The tour, which will include stops with a pair of nights at Boston’s Wang Center and two shows at Avery Fisher Hall in NYC’s Lincoln Center, will cover songs from his current acclaimed album, <em>Le Noise</em> as well as classic tracks in both electric and acoustic settings. Young recently won a Grammy for "Best Rock Song" for "Angry World," from <em>Le Noise</em>, which was also nominated for "Best Rock Album."
The eight-song <em>Le Noise</em>, among Young’s most critically-embraced albums, is a collaboration between the musician, songwriter, and multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Daniel Lanois, known for his work with U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, The Neville Brothers and many others. <em>Le Noise</em> was released in September.
