The two icons, who are also set to perform together at Hyde Park next summer, will also now team up at Kilkenny’s Nowlan Park in Ireland on July 14. Tickets go on sale at 9am on December 17. You can buy tickets for the event here.
The announcement comes after Young yesterday (December 12) revealed that he will go ahead with his co-headlining Hyde Park show next summer with Dylan, with Barclays no longer as a sponsor.
Last month, it was announced that Young would be returning to London on July 12 for a huge co-headline show with Bob Dylan. He later criticised BST’s “fossil fuel entity” sponsorship, Barclays. “This doesn’t work for me,” he said of the partnership.
A new post on Young’s own Archives website yesterday revealed that the concert will be going ahead. “NYA is happy to announce that the Hyde park show will proceed without Barclays as a sponsor,” the post read. “We are overjoyed, so happy to be playing the show! NYA tickets to all tiers will be available today. We will have the announcement and ticket sales up very soon.”
A BST Hyde Park spokesman then told NME: “Neil Young has made the decision to move away from the Barclaycard presents British Summer Time concert series. Neil Young and Bob Dylan will play a stand-alone concert in Hyde Park on the same date, 12th July. All tickets will remain valid.
“The Barclaycard presents British Summer Time concert series remains unaffected and will continue as normal with more headliners to be announced in early 2019.”
