Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Alison Krauss and Many More to Join Pre-Grammys Tribute to Sir. Paul
Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, Norah Jones, James Taylor, Coldplay. Foo Fighters and many others will perform at a Pre-Grammy MusicCares event on February 10. The show—which will take place at Los Angeles, CA’s Convention Center—will honor Sir. Paul McCartney, who will take home the MusicCares Person of the Year Award. Diana Krall, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Tony Bennett and others will also perform at the event, and McCartney himself is slated to make a “special performance” at the tribute show. In addition, members of Cirque du Soleil’s Beatles Love cast will appear during the night.
The show will be Neil Young’s first public appearance with Crazy Horse since March 21, 2004. Young has confirmed that he is working on a new album with Crazy Horse and recently released a video of a studio jam session with his longtime group. This year’s Grammys also promises to feature a performance by the recently reunited Beach Boys as well as appearances by both The Allman Brothers Band and their estranged co-founder Dickey Betts.
