Young and Crazy Horse are hitting the road in April.

Young has been no stranger to the touring circuit in recent years, playing a series of solo dates in 2023, as well as an appearance at Farm Aid in Indiana last September. But the last time he was joined by his longtime backing band for a full tour was 2014. The group has since played several one-offs, including a pair a dates at Los Angeles’ the Roxy to celebrate the venue’s 50th anniversary last year.

Young also announced the impending release of a new album with Crazy Horse, titled Fu##in’ Up, which will feature newly recorded catalog songs. The album will first drop in a limited capacity on vinyl for Record Store Day on April 20, before a wide release on April 26. Ever prolific, Young released the oft-bootlegged Crazy Horse collection Chrome Dreams, recorded in the '70s, just last year, as well as the solo acoustic set Before and After, which featured re-recorded versions of older material.

Young first teamed with Crazy Horse back in 1968, shortly after his departure from Buffalo Springfield, with the group releasing Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere in 1969. Drummer Ralph Molina and bassist Billy Talbot have been stalwarts of the group ever since, with future E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofgren joining Crazy Horse for a period in the early 1970s, then rejoining the group in 2018. With Lofgren also busy on tour with Bruce Springsteen in the spring, it’s unclear whether he will be handling the second guitar duties for the band’s upcoming tour.

Young has also recently booked solo dates at Kentucky's Bourbon & Beyond Festival in September, as well as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in the spring.
