Aussie rock’s best celebrate 50 years of Neil Young’s ‘Harvest’ live – add second Brisbane and Wollongong shows

A stack of Aussie rock legends are teaming up to celebrate Neil Young’s masterpiece, 'Harvest' live.

Following two sold-out tours of The Beatles’ Abbey Road live in 2019/20, ARC (Australian Rock Collective) is returning in 2022 to celebrate 50 years of Neil Young’s masterpiece, Harvest, live in concert. 

UPDATE: Due to popular demand two new dates have been added to the February 2022 tour Harvest Live 50th anniversary tour. Australian Rock Collective (ARC) have announced a second night at Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, and will close the tour with a second show at Anita’s Theatre in Wollongong. Tickets for both new shows will go on sale at 11am local time this Thursday 11 November. Tickets for all other shows are on sale now. 

Released in February 1972, Harvest went on to become Neil Young’s most successful record. His fourth album – following the brilliant After the Gold Rush – was also the highest selling album of that year, and Young’s first #1 record.

As well as featuring hit single ‘Heart of Gold’, the album also includes a slew of Young’s most loved classics including ‘Old Man’, ‘Alabama’, ‘A Man Needs a Maid’, ‘Words’ and the beautiful ‘The Needle and the Damage Done’ written for his friend and bandmate Danny Whitten.

Harvest is the album that came to define Americana – literally where rock and roll goes to Nashville.
