In the grand tradition of Neil Young doing whatever the fuck Neil Young wants, the legendary singer-songwriter has just announced a handful of January solo shows in the Midwest, including a Thursday, January 24 stop at Overture Hall. He’ll be at the Riverside in Milwaukee on Jan. 23, and he’ll play three different theaters in Minneapolis on Jan. 26, 28, and 29. If you can swing it, do try and take the opportunity to see Young dig back into his massive, wonderful discography.

For the moment, it seems that tickets for the Madison show are available only through Neil Young Archives, Young’s private audio-streaming and fanclub site; we’ve reached out to the Overture Center for details on when tickets will be available to the general public, and will update this post when we have that info. (Staying home and consoling yourself with the superior fidelity of your Pono Player is free.)


UPDATE, Jan. 9, 2019: Tickets are now on sale through the Overture website.

Young hasn’t played Madison in ages, though the UW Cinematheque program screened his 1983 film Human Highway in April 2017 at Union South’s Marquee Theater and the archive-digging social media channel Sleazy Madison recently posted a newspaper ad for his October 1978 show at the Dane County Coliseum with Crazy Horse.
