Subject: HORDE fest in Denver

Hi everyone,

In case it hasn't been mentioned yet, Neil will be playing at the HORDE Fest in Denver, Co on July 20th at Fiddler's Green (outdoor amphitheater). Tickets have not gone on sale yet.

I read this in the Denver local newspaper (Rocky Mountain News, Spotlight section) on Friday. They had an entire section about upcoming summer concerts, festivals, and events. There was even a cool picture of The Man himself which I immediately clipped and stuck on my refrigerator! I called ticketmaster on Saturday morning (thinking that tickets might be on sale already) and they had the information in their computers but no time given on when the tickets would go on sale. The only thing definite is that Neil will be playing at the festival on July 20th at Fiddler's Green.

It was on http://www.greatwoods.com/gwsched.html, but they've changed it to "T.B.A." now.

Looking closely at that page, it's pretty obvious what happened. The Queensryche show right beside it on the page is now marked for ticket sales this Saturday. Somebody originally updated the wrong cell in the table. But it's now fixed.

Neil Young will be playing in Malmoe, Sweden the 11th of June!

It will be an outdoors-concert, but I have got no further information about place or ticket-sales. I'll get back when I have more info.

YES! YES! YES! Neil - here we come!

Subject: Neil in Hannover

After everything is confirmed and tickets are on sale, one important note is to be made: The place is not that large, about 2000 tickets I've been told. So it will be soon sold out, most likely being the only show in northern Germany.

Anyway my wish came true: Not a festival, but a rather small venue. Ok it's not the OPL but much better than the 50,000 crowds.

Found in today's Italian national newspaper L'Unitā:

"Neil Young will play in Italy with Crazy Horse next July, 5th 1997 at the PISTOIA BLUES FESTIVAL".
The Pistoia Blues Festival is a very good festival (not only blues) that in the previous editions featured people like Bob Dylan, Santana, Buddy Guy, and many others. Pistoia is a nice small town placed 40 km from Florence (Firenze).

Subject: Torhout/Werchter out

Neil Young is not playing on the Torhout/Werchter festival this year. The (official) bill has just been completed and Neil is not on it. Maybe (just maybe) this sad message could turn into a good one. I've heard rumours about an indoor Belgium concert. Could be, plenty of free dates to choose from. It has been ten years since Neil played indoors in Belgium.

Keep hope alive.

Note that, despite the "wish list" on the DoctorMusic web site, it's not likely Neil will be there, since the Seattle H.O.R.D.E. opener is that weekend. I guess that if Neil played the opening night of Dr.Music, he COULD jet 1/3 of the way around the world for the H.O.R.D.E. opener, but moving all his equipment and Crazy Horse and everything too -- I kinda doubt it...

The last I heard from the Provinssirock organizers was that they were arranging a flight for Neil from Oslo. So if he's playing in Norway June 13th, he should be in Provinssi June 14th or 15th. Their web page only shows a big red question mark...

The Burlington Free Press/AP said today that local promoter, Jay Strausser is trying to get approvals for three shows at Highgate (where the Dead played) for this summer. "Neil Young could play in August." It says. Neil back in Vermont for the first time since the '60's. An hour from my house. Will keep y'all posted.
