More information about Rust for Glory - Tribute to Nei Young tickets

The UK's RUSTIEST Neil Young tribute band

Internationally acclaimed Neil Young tribute band Rust For Glory's repertoire includes songs from almost every era of Young’s 50+ year career, delving deep into the archive, serving up the sounds, feel and spirit of Neil Young’s work, both solo and with his various bands and collaborators; Buffalo Springfield, CSN&Y, The Stray Gators and Crazy Horse.

Most recently they have been performing Neil Young's classic 1972 'Harvest' album live in full, to celebrate the album's 50th anniversary, including a special performance at the Barking Broadway (then known as Barking Town Hall), where in 1971 Neil Young recorded 2 songs with the London Symphony Orchestra for the album.

In their stunning 2-part show, audiences hear each classic track played 100% live, so authentically you'll swear you were back in the barn.

Old Man, Heart of Gold, Alabama, The Needle & the Damage Done, and A Man needs a Maid to name but a few.

Then, the second half of the show will see the band move from the middle of the road, and head straight for the ditch as the band perform classics from the critically acclaimed 'Ditch trilogy' of mid-70s albums, as well as classic later material.

The Harvest shows are an absolute must for any Neil Young fan wanting to experience these classics performed live!

The four members of Rust For Glory are:
Alex Curtis - lead vocals, lead guitar, piano, harmonica
Dave Pearce - guitar, backing vocals, keyboards, lap steel
John Russell - bass, backing vocals
Nick Brown - drums, backing vocals
