Neil Young announces Boston concerts

, Staff

Neil Young has announced plans for a special two-night stand in Boston this fall. The legendary rocker will deliver back-to-back performances at the Citi Wang Theatre on Sunday, October 5 and Monday, October 6. Tickets for each of the shows, which range in price from $55 to $350, will go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Young will be promoting his new album, A Letter Home. Released on Record Store Day this past April, the Canadian’s 34th studio effort was recorded on a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph vinyl recording booth at Jack White’s Third Man store in Nashville, Tennessee. The opening spoken-word track is followed by a collection of classic songs covering the likes of Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Gordon Lightfoot, Bruce Springsteen and others. White contributes vocals and piano on two tracks. A Letter Home debuted at #13 on the Billboard 200.

In a press release, Young described the album as “an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever.”

Young’s last offering of all original material was 2012’s Psychedelic Pill, which he recorded with Crazy Horse. The double-disc set is Young’s longest album, clocking in at just under 88 minutes.
