WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Monday, February 29, 2016, experience “An Evening With Neil Young” when Fathom Events, Warner Bros. Records, and AARP present a special, one-night screening of the critically-acclaimed post-apocalyptic musical comedy, “Human Highway,” along with the iconic musician’s concert feature, “Rust Never Sleeps,” in select 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 special cinematic event also features an exclusive live Q&A with Cameron Crowe interviewing Young and his eclectic cast, which includes Gerald V. Casale of Devo, Russ Tamblyn and Charlotte Stewart.

Audiences will first enjoy “Human Highway,” Young’s 1982 comedy starring Tamblyn, Stewart, Dean Stockwell, Dennis Hopper and Devo, in an all new digital restoration. Then, “Rust Never Sleeps,” the full-length feature about Young’s 1978 concert tour, will give cinema audiences a spectacular set list full of Young’s most popular songs, showcasing classic hits such as “I Am a Child,” featuring Crazy Horse, “Cinnamon Girl,” “Like a Hurricane” and both the acoustic and electric versions of his landmark song “Hey Hey, My My.”

Tickets for “An Evening With Neil Young” can be purchased online beginning Friday, January 15, by visitingwww.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network.

With multiple GRAMMYs®, Juno Awards and many other notable accolades earned during his illustrious career, Neil Young is one of the most influential musicians of the generation. The New York Timesdescribed “Rust Never Sleeps” as offering “some of [Young’s] strongest songs, both new and old, in performances as fine or finer than those on his recent, partly live record album of the same title,” and said “the intensity of the singing and playing of Crazy Horse, Mr. Young’s longtime partners for electric-rock projects, is as moving as rock can offer.”

John Rubey, Fathom Events CEO, said, “We are proud to present ‘An Evening With Neil Young’ to fans across the nation. Music lovers will get a unique opportunity to experience over three-and-a-half hours of landmark rock n’ roll entertainment from one of music’s most beloved singer-songwriters.”

“Neil Young is a singular talent and an icon of American popular music, and we are proud and honored to support this event, knowing full well how much our members will enjoy it,” said Robert Love, editor in chief of AARP The Magazine. ”I have many fond memories of seeing Neil and Crazy Horse at the Fillmore East in New York City, solo at Carnegie Hall, and have followed his career since Buffalo Springfield.”
