      Don’t Miss Forever Young:

      A Neil Young Tribute


         Forever Young is comprised of veteran musicians performing the best of Neil Young’s
      classic songs. With over 20 years of club and concert experience, their audiences have
      enjoyed shows throughout Florida and the music of one of the most compelling and
      talented songwriter/musicians of our time, Neil Young.
         Assembled with the intention of performing Neil Young’s signature songs, with the
      respect and attention to detail worthy of such an iconic rock legend, Forever Young
      displays the passion and commitment to his music at every performance. With over
      30 years of journeyman musicianship, the performance leaves no doubt the adoration
      these performers have for Neil Young and his talent. Enjoy nostalgic hits like, Old
      Man, Heart of Gold and Harvest Moon, just to name a few. Live onstage at the Abacoa
      Amphitheater, Forever Young will perform for the Summer Concert Series on June 15
      at 7:30 p.m. This community event is free and open to the public, so make plans to
