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.


Neil Young is touring with his long-time on-again, off-again rock band Crazy Horse to accompany the April release of their new LP, FU##IN UP, which features new live recordings of material from Young's 1990 album Ragged Glory.

The album was recorded at Toronto's intimate Rivoli club in 2023, likely at a private show for Canada Goose CEO Dani Reis' birthday that was the subject of many local rumours and reports. Neil Young has shared one single from the upcoming release, "Broken Circle (Over and Over)." The album arrives on April 20, in partnership with Record Store Day.

Pre-sale for the new tour dates starts Mar. 4 on Neil Young Archives, and general sale starts Mar. 7.
