The legendary Neil Young played back-to-back sold-out shows the last two nights at the Centennial Concert Hall in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Winnipeg Free Press columnist Rob Williams provided a thorough review of Young’s Twisted Road tour return visit to the city where he lived as a teenager.
“He’s an iconoclast who follows nobody,” writes Williams. “He does what he wants, when he wants and remains an unpredictable artist who has managed the rare feat of continuing to be fascinating, diverse and relevant for more than four decades while never latching on to a trend, fashion or fad.”
