Neil Young & Crazy Horse will tour Australia for the first time in a decade.

The band, who have just released their 35th album Psychedelic Pill, will play a series of arena and A Day On The Green winery shows in March.

Young last visited Australian shores headlining the 2009 Big Day Out but has not performed with Crazy Horse since their 2003 concept album Greendale.

There were fears Young and the trio - Billy Talbot, Frank "Poncho" Sampedro and Ralph Molina - would not perform together again following a lengthy hiatus.

Just two years ago the Canadian singer said when asked about the future of his relationship with Crazy Horse: "They have to be together before I can be together with them. They haven't been doing anything together, so they need to be able to do it."

Seemingly accepting the challenge, the band reformed and roared back with the rambling folk opus Americana, before following up with the more experimental Psychedelic Pill.

Since resuming touring this year, the band's comeback shows have won rave reviews with The Hollywood Reporter describing a recent Los Angeles concert as an "outstanding torrent of beautiful noise".
