Rock icon Neil Young and Crazy Horse will perform in Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon on July 17, producer Shuki Weiss announced Wednesday.
Young was last in Israel in August 1995, during his Mirror Ball tour with Pearl Jam.
While best known for his work with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, with whom he began touring and recording albums with in 1969, the 69-year-old Young has also had a long and fruitful relationship with Crazy Horse, the rock and roll band he has performed with off and on for the last 45 years.
Young and Crazy Horse began a world tour in 2013, but had to cancel several summer concert dates in Europe and North America after guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro broke his hand. They resumed performances in September.
Sampedro told Rolling Stone magazine last year that this was probably their last tour.
“My gut tells me this is really the last tour,” he told Rolling Stone. “I hate saying their ages, but I’m 64 and I’m the baby of the band. I love playing and we’re playing as good as we ever did, but at any time, something could go down with any one of us.”
Tickets are on sale at the Eventim site, for NIS 340, NIS 790 and NIS 1,400 for VIP tickets.
