Neil Young and his camp are likely very happy with the latest updates on his upcoming show in London’s Hyde Park with Bob Dylan.

Young took to his official website earlier this week to vent about the early announcement of the gig and how he did not approve of Barclays Bank as a sponsor, who Young referred to as “a fossil fuel funding entity.”

However, it looks like the show will go on with Young publishing the following message to his website titled “Bob Dylan + Neil Young:  Hyde Park – Sponsored By Nobody”:

“NYA [Neil Young Authority] is happy to announce that the Hyde Park show will proceed with Barclays as a sponsor.  We are overjoyed, so happy to be playing the show!”

Now would be a good time to listen to “This Note’s For You” on loop in honor of Young’s victory.
