Monday, 21st September 2015

Neil Young's 'Rebel Content' tour kicks off on October 1st. He is taking Permaculture magazine plus seven other independent, 'news you can trust' publications with him.

Legendary singer, songwriter and activist Neil Young ( has once again invited Permaculture magazine on tour in the USA.

Neil's Rebel Content Tour in support of his recent The Monsanto Years album takes place at mostly indoor venues, many on or near university campuses throughout the west coast of America (and one Canadian show), from 1st - 17th October 2015.

  • 1st October - Adams Event Center, Missoula, MT
  • 2nd October - Spokane Arena, WA
  • 4th October - WaMu Theatre, Seattle, WA
  • 5th October - Rogers Arena, Vancouver, BC, Canada
  • 7th October - Chiles Center, Portland, OR
  • 8th October - Matthew Knight Arena, Eugene, OR
  • 9th October - Santa Barbara Bowl, CA
  • 11th October - Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, NV
  • 13th October - Rimac Arena, La Jolla, CA
  • 14th October - LA Forum, LA
  • 17th October - Greek Theatre, University of Berkeley, CA

The team at Earth Island have again been asked to coordinate the #NewsYouCanTrust booth as part of the activist village which greets people at each show. The activist village and the News You Can Trust booth were key parts of the fan experience on Neil’s US summer tour and the feedback was that folks loved the shows.

Neil and his crew have invited eight independent magazines to take part for the October tour: PermacultureEarth Island Journal, The Nation, Mother Jones, Yes! MagazinePermaculture Design and The Funny Times.

Given the smaller size of these venues (the summer tour took in festivals and large, open arenas), there will be six non-profit groups staffing the information tents in The Village (there were 12 for the summer tour – so we are in even more select company). 

As with the summer tour there will be both print and digital (via our ByPlace system) copies of the magazine available at each show, so fans can either walk away with a rare copy of Permaculture magazine featuring Neil Young on the cover, or download a copy digitally and keep their hands free for the main event!

“Neil Young is regarded as a legend,” says Permaculture’s Tony Rollinson, “but to make such an effort to keep it real, connect people up and introduce them to ideas and solutions which are ever more essential is what sets him apart. The Monsanto Years is a great album and once again Neil has found a great band, a truly exciting band, to get both his music and ideas out there. Long may he run!"
