Neil Young is continuing his eagerly awaited return to touring with a limited run of concerts. The 2023 tour kicked off a run of 15 west coast dates on June 30, the first for the celebrated singer-songwriter since a solo theater run in 2018-19.

Young, who turned 77 on Nov. 12, 2022, had already made several appearances in 2023. His first public performance in years took place on Feb. 25, at a rally in Victoria, Canada. He then appeared with his three-time bandmate Stephen Stills at the latter’s benefit concert and again at Willie Nelson’s 90th birthday concerts. Both were in April. When Farm Aid returned in 2021, the founding board member chose not to perform over Covid-19 concerns. He has since announced that he’ll be performing at the 2023 Farm Aid concert on Sept. 23. He’s also doing a pair of concerts at The Roxy in West Hollywood to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the intimate venue where he was the first performer in 1973. The news was first reported by Variety. Tickets for the Roxy gigs will be available here.

Tickets for the initial west coast leg sold out quickly at Ticketmaster. (New dates may be available via Ticketmaster’s Face Value Exchange, as well as at StubHub.)

In a live Zoom on June 7 with subscribers to his website, Neil Young Archives, Young said that the repertoire will feature many songs he’s never played live. “I don’t want to come back and do the same songs again,” he said. “I’ll feel like I was on some sort of carnival ride. I’d rather be doing these others songs I haven’t done…I won’t have to compare how I’m doing ‘Heart of Gold’ to 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010, 2020…”
