Neil Young has announced a new album and tour with Willie Nelson’s sons that will stop for two nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this summer.

With the new album, “The Monsanto Years,” due out on June 16, Young, joined by Lukas and Micah Nelson, will stop at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on July 8-9.

Band of Horses will join Young on the two-night Colorado run. Tickets cost $54.50-$164.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. on April 24.
