The Missoula concert will kick off the second leg of Young and Promise of the Real’s Rebel Content Tour, which ranges from solo acoustic to full-band acoustic, and full-on rock jams.

Promise of the Real includes artists Lukas and Micah Nelson (vocals, guitar), Anthony Logerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass, vocals) and Tato Melgar (percussion). Young and Promise of the Real played together at the Bold Nebraska/Cowboys and Indians Alliance event last year along with the Nelsons’ father, Willie Nelson. They had such an instant synergy that Young invited them to record his new album, “The Monsanto Years,” with him.

The Rebel Content Tour features material from both “The Monsanto Years” and Young’s entire catalog.

Young is hailed as one of rock and roll’s greatest songwriters and performers and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
