Tickets for Neil Young’s upcoming solo shows at the Fox Theater in Oakland, Calif., will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. PT June 13 through Ticketmaster and Another Planet Entertainment.

A special presale for Visa Signature cardholders starts at 10 a.m. PT June 10.

Tickets for the all-ages gigs, which will be held July 11 and 12, cost $85, $149.50 and $199.50.

Young usually plays in the San Francisco Bay Area as part of his annual star-studded Bridge School Benefit concert series, which typically takes place in October at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View. But as Oakland Tribune writer Jim Harrington pointed out in a story this week, Young hasn’t played a non-Bridge School show in the Bay Area since 2004.
