Neil Young & Crazy Horse bring their first tour in eight years to Tulsa on Sunday at the Tulsa Convention Center Arena. Showtime is 7 p.m.
Young, Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina and Poncho Sampedro are touring to support their new album, "Americana." The show is all-ages.
Rock act Los Lobos has been added to the Neil Young & Crazy Horse tour stop.
"We are honored and proud to have been asked to join Neil Young & Crazy Horse on their latest tour," Los Lobos saxman-keyboardist Steve Berlin said in a press statement. "Neil has always been one of our heroes, and we are ecstatic to get to play and hang out with him for the next few months."
Tickets are $46.50, $63, $83 and $123, plus fees, available at tulsaworld.com/livenation, Tickets.com outlets, tulsaworld.com/tulsaconventioncenter or by phone at 877-885-7222. Also, the convention center box office will be open on Saturday at 100 Civic Center. The show is all-ages.
Online ticket buyers will receive "Americana" on CD, released nationally Tuesday on Reprise Records. Also, $1 from each ticket sold will go to The Bridge School to assist children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs.
Young and Crazy Horse have collaborated off and on since the late 1960s, and they've recorded 20 albums together.
Los Lobos joins the tour in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their seminal album "Kiko," the band's ninth studio album, often called "the most rewarding" record in the band's long history. It was hailed as Album of the Year by the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times and was included in Rolling Stone music magazine's "The Essential Recordings of the '90s."
The band also celebrates its 40th anniversary this year with members Berlin, Louie Pérez, David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas and Conrad Lozano.
