The buzz surrounding Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s Australian and New Zealand tour continues, as the line-up of supports for the concerts kicking off next week in Perth is announced.

Supporting Neil Young & Crazy Horse at each of their arena and a day on the green appearances is four piece Husky, who released their debut LP Forever So (out now through Liberation Music) with songs that managed to be both understated and emotionally stirring. Their European and American tour quickly carved a name for the band on the international indie folk scene and garnered rave reviews along the way.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s shows at The Plenary and Hunter Valley a day on the green will include Melbourne’s revered experimental rock ensemble The Drones who’ve just come off the back of a stellar spot curating ATP.

The Drones’ ingenuity and grace won them the inaugural Australian Music Prize with breakthrough album Wait Long By The River and the Bodies of Your Enemies Will Float By. Their latest release I See Seaweed uses broad strokes to engage a diverse range of themes with their trademark contrast of bombastic guitar sounds and foreboding melody.

The Geelong a day on the green performance will feature support from treasured Australian singer songwriter, Shane Howard, who has made a remarkable cultural contribution to Australian music. Both with his band Goanna and as a solo artist, his music references our indigenous history with artistic passion.

Howard’s return to Geelong also has a deeper connection; “I learnt so much from those wild, music-loving audiences. My environmental campaigning really began in the Otway Ranges. There are so many precious memories. My roots are deep here.”

With a limited amount of tickets still available and the exciting addition of these supports, selling out is inevitable so best be quick and avoid missing out!
