Neil Young is finally returning to the stage. Rolling Stone reports the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, who hasn’t performed live since September 2019, is set to headline the Light Up the Blues charity show, put on by his Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmate Stephen Stills and his wife, Kristen.


“We’ll be there to ‘Light up the Blues’ with Stephen, Kristen and the family,” Young tells the mag in a statement, “doing or [sic] first show in four years with old friends for our autistic people around the world.”

The concert, taking place April 22 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, will also feature performances by Stills, along with his sons Chris and Oliver, plus Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and special guests. 

This is the sixth year of the Light Up the Blues charity show, which raises money for Autism Speaks, which is “dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.”

Tickets for the concert go on sale February 17 at 10 a.m. local time.
