Neil Young has tacked on more dates to his Twisted Road tour, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s first solo acoustic tour in over a decade. The trek will kick off May 18th in Albany, New York, and snake its way southwest until a June 7th show in Dallas, Texas. In addition to performing some of his greatest cuts, Young also promises to unveil brand new tracks throughout the trek.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, Young will be joined on the road by Scottish folk legend Bert Jansch, who has long been one of Young’s chief influences. “Bert Jansch is on the same level as Jimi Hendrix,” Young said in 1992. “That first record of his is epic. It came from England, and I was especially taken by ‘The Needle of Death,’ such a beautiful and angry song. That guy was so good… And years later, on On the Beach, I wrote the melody of ‘Ambulance Blues’ by styling the guitar part completely on ‘Needle of Death.’ I wasn’t even aware of it, and someone else drew my attention to it.”
