Neil Young's Love Earth Tour Will Take Him Throughout Canada

The Canadian icon is bringing his Love Earth Tour with Crazy Horse to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Burnaby. He's also added a second date at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, accompanying the release of his new album, FU##IN' UP.

Neil Young is showing some love to Canadian cities on his Love Earth tour. While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
