Neil Young Announces His First Show Since The Pandemic And It’s At The Greek Theater!

Neil Young has just announced a show at the Greek Theater, and it will take place just a week before Willie Nelson’s 2-day birthday at the Hollywood Bowl… This new one might be a bit more affordable, but it’s not a guarantee at all.

The upcoming “Light Up the Blues” charity concert will be Neil Young’s first return to the stage since 2019 and his first post-pandemic show. Since the pandemic, the famous singer-songwriter has been reluctant to participate in any big events; he even pulled out of Farm Aid last September, citing concerns over Covid-19 transmission. He is 77, so I won’t blame him.

But this upcoming event is a good sign: Young was announced as the headliner of the benefit show, an annual event organized by Stills and his family to raise money for the autism awareness organization, “Autism Speaks,” since 2013.

Young declared to Rolling Stone: “We’ll be there to ‘Light up the Blues’ with Stephen, [his wife] Kristen, and the family, doing our first show in four years with old friends for our autistic people around the world.”

Now in its sixth year, the concert will feature many artists including Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real (another overlap with Willie’s birthday), Stephen Stills’s son Chris, and David Crosby’s son James Raymond who will participate in a tribute to his late father. “His singing voice sounds so much like David that it’s scary,” Stills declared. “There’s going to be some neat surprises. I’ve always had so much fun playing those songs, David’s songs. We’ve got James, and now we can get the chords, which was always a carefully kept mystery.”

With all these second-generation performers, the event promises to be a true family affair. More guests for the evening will be announced in the coming weeks, but we already know that opera singer Amanda Anderson, rapper Soul Shocka, and other artists on the autism spectrum will perform.

The Light Up the Blues charity show is set to take place at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on April 22.
