Neil Young: Two Telluride Shows Next Weekend

Neil Young: Two Telluride Shows Next Weekend

Neil Young + Promise of the Real to play two shows in Telluride, September 30 & October 1, 2016. Ticket information below. Performance videos too. Tickets now available to the general public. Event coincides with the 2nd annual Telluride Festival of Cars & Colors. Overview and ticket info for that event here.




Steve Gumble, of Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, and Craig Ferguson, of Telluride Bluegrass Festival, have joined together to announce two very special Telluride shows featuring legendary guitarist and songwriter Neil Young.

Singer, songwriter, producer and two-time Rock ’n Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Young will visit Telluride, to play back-to-back shows (September 30 and October 1) on the new state-of-the-art Main Stage in Telluride Town Park.

Young will be joined on stage for his set by Promise of the Real, fronted by Lukas Nelson, son of Willie Nelson.




“Neil Young is in that genre and demographic that for me screams ‘Telluride,’ said Steve Gumble, of Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. “He’s been a part of many people’s lives for decades. His style, his environmentalism–it’s a really good fit for Telluride. This is a dream come true, not only for myself, but many people in Telluride. I am honored to be a part of these concerts which are sure to be legendary.”

In a town where festivals dominate the local music scene, one-off concerts like the Grateful Dead in 1987, Bob Dylan in 2007, and Phish in 2010 are revered as monumental moments in music history. These once-in-a-lifetime shows will mark the first-ever slated performances from Young in Telluride.

“I believe Neil is the artist Telluride has been most wanting to see,” said Craig Ferguson, of Telluride Bluegrass Festival

About Telluride, Colorado:

Nestled in a box canyon in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and surrounded by some of Colorado’s most rugged terrain, Telluride has been voted as one of the most scenic music venues in the country. The historic mining town is situated 8,750 feet above sea level and is an acclaimed ski town by winter and the festival capital of Colorado in the summer. Telluride’s Main Street, just steps away from the concert site in Telluride Town Park, is home to colorful Victorian-era homes, clapboard storefronts, boutiques, art galleries, gourmet restaurants, historic buildings and more.  The concert experience expands beyond the parameters of the awe-inspiring Telluride Town Park with endless recreating.
