Neil Young, the legendary Canadian musician and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, has confirmed that he will play Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park this summer, accompanied by his longstanding pals in Crazy Horse.

The band is set to perform July 17th at a show called 'The Past, the Present and The Future with Neil Young and Crazy Horse.' Reports suggest that the show will be a more psychedelic experience, reflective of Young's earlier works.

This will be Young's second performance in Israel; he last played in 1993 at the Caesarea Ampitheater with Pearl Jam when they were touring in support of their collaborative album, Mirror Ball.

Young joins other cult-status bands set to play Israel this year, including Soundgarden and the Pixies, which play June 17th and 18th.

There's also rumours afloat regarding The Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga, and even Miley Cyrus making their ways to Israel this year. Take that, Roger Waters.
