Neil Young to Open Rebel Content Summer Tour with Solo Acoustic Set

Neil Young has announced that he will open his upcoming Rebel Content Summer Tour with a solo acoustic set.

He will then be joined by the band Promise of the Real for a full electric show.

Both sets will feature new songs and old favorites.

The tour kicks off on July 5th at Milwaukee's Summer Fest. Please see below for all upcoming dates.

Promise of the Real is an LA-based rock band fronted by Lukas Nelson (vocals/guitar), along with Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals), Anthony Logerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass) and Tato Melgar (percussion). They have performed with their father, Willie Nelson, and Young on previous occasions.
