The grungy guitar-rocker who draws fans from around the world
Neil Young rose to fame in the 1970s, attracting music lovers with his eclectic, idiosyncratic style and ability to switch between three main musical genres: country rock, acoustic ballads and hard rock. From the beginning of his career continuing through to today, Young has maintained his presence in the musical world, continuously writing, producing and performing his music. Although the guitarist played in several bands at the beginning of his career, it was his solo performances that really allowed him to take off. After he left the folk-rock band Buffalo Springfield in 1968 he began to really establish himself on the music scene, releasing his first debut solo LP in 1969. He then joined up with local band The Rockets to produce some of his most famous songs, including "Cinnamon Girl" and "Down By the River", which continue to be loved around the world today. However, his number one single "Heart of Gold" was perhaps the most defining song of his career and is featured in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. Don't miss hearing these songs and many more by checking out Neil Young tickets on StubHub today.
Neil Young's passion for political protest
In 2014 Young came out with an environmental protest album called "Storytone". The album features a 30-member choir, a 92-piece orchestra, and performances by several well-known musicians. The album, which is quite different from the guitarist's typical style, continues his tendency to use his music as a form of political protest. Some of his most well known songs contain content about support for people with autism and championing America's farmers. Although he hasn't been quite as vocal about his political views as the likes of fellow musicians Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez or Tom Morello, Young has made several assertive statements in his music. "Storytone" features songs in which Young speaks out against fracking and oil drilling (in "Who's Gonna Stand Up") or voices his support for alternative energy sources ("I Want to Drive My Car"). Rock's most grizzly Canadian musician shows no signs of slowing down as he continues to write and produce new music and tour the world: buy and sell Neil Young tickets on StubHub today for an unforgettable experience.
