Neil Young will release two rare films – the concert feature “Rust Never Sleeps” and the post-apocalyptic musical comedy “Human Highway” – for the first time on DVD on April 22.
Neither film has been available for public viewing in years.
“Rust Never Sleeps” is the full-length feature about Young's 1978 concert tour and includes some of his most popular songs, including "Cinnamon Girl," "Like A Hurricane" and both the acoustic and electric versions of "Hey Hey, My My."
Digitally restored for the DVD release, “Human Highway” is Young's 1982 comedy starring Russ Tamblyn, Charlotte Stewart, Dean Stockwell, Dennis Hopper and Devo.
Young will launch the promotional campaign for both releases with a one-night event in US theaters on February 29.
Presented by Fathom Events, “An Evening With Neil Young Live” will present a special one-night only screening of the two films in movie theaters nationwide live at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT / 6 p.m. MT and tape-delayed to 7:30 p.m. PT, HI and AK.
The event also features an exclusive live Q&A with Cameron Crowe interviewing Young and his eclectic cast, which includes Gerald V. Casale of Devo, Tamblyn, and Stewart.
