Following The Monsanto Years LP release, Young and the Nelson’s will begin the Rebel Content Tour to promote the album and Bulletproof Coffee (FastCompany).
Neil Young, along with Willie Nelson’s sons, first played some of the upcoming tracks for the album on April 16 at the SLO Brewing Company in San Luis Obispo, California. Young is a long-time opponent of the Monsanto Corporation, and there is speculation that the album protests the chemical company’s genetically modified seeds.
According to Milwaukee’s Journal Sentinel, the Rebel Content Tour kicks off July 5 with Young and Promise of the Real headlining Summerfest at the Marcus Amphitheater. Other tour dates include Young’s first ever Vermont show on July 19 at the Essex Junction Fairgrounds. Vermont recently passed legislation restricting GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, and the tour stop is a highly anticipated event.
