Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie Open Neil Young's Upcoming Tour

Critical Mass

by Larry Fitzmaurice

Who? Forward-thinking rocker Neil Young, Seattle indie mainstay Death Cab for Cutie, and psych-country titan Wilco.

What? Young's two-tiered, bi-coastal tour featuring Death Cab for Cutie and Wilco opening the jaunt's first and second leg, respectively. Country-rock up-and-comers Everest will play all dates. Young and Death Cab kick off the tour's first leg Oct. 14 in St. Paul, MN, while Wilco join up for a Canadian and East Coast jaunt with Young Nov. 29 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Should I Go? Absolutely! Neil Young is one of the few legends of his era who has remained creative and relevant both on record and in a live setting -- and this batch of shows will undoubtedly be yet another showcase of his inimitable talent. Plus: Death Cab and Wilco's opening slots -- as well as the possibility of on stage collaborations between Young and the respective acts -- only adds more incentive to attend.
