On Wednesday night, July 22 Neil Young took his Rebel Content Tour to Mansfield, Mass., where he played at the Xfinity Center with Micah and Lukas Nelson from Promise of the Neil.

His last show on this tour will be tonight, Thursday, July 24 at the Wayhome Festival in Oro-Medonte, Canada.
A review of they concert by Stephen Peterson of the Sun Chronicle says Legendary singer-songwriter-guitarist Neil Young just keeps plugging away as he approaches his seventh decade, and remains as spirited as ever.He writes that several of the new album’s songs were part of the set in the 2 1/2-hour show, which may have disappointed fans wanting to hear more of the folk rocker’s popular tunes. But there were several rarer vintage songs featured, too.

“Taking yet another jab at corporate America, Young called the concert venue Great Woods twice. ‘No corporation can buy your history,’ the ever-rebellious Young told the crowd.

“The feisty Canadian native kept up his social commentary with two longer songs also off the latest album, “People Want to Hear About Love” and “Big Box.”

Norah Jones’ alternative country group, Puss n Boots, a trio whose members all sing, opened.

Jones, 36, is best known for “Don’t Know Why” off her five-time Grammy winning 2002 debut album, but the song list centered on her group’s 2014 debut album, “No Fools, No Fun,” including “Twilight,” “Don’t Know What It Means,” the snappy “Always” and “GTO.”

“I\\\'m really turned on by the new music I\\\'m making now, back with Crazy Horse. Today, even as I\\\'m talking, the songs are running through my head. I\\\'m excited. I think everything I\\\'ve done is valid or else I wouldn\\\'t have released it, but I do realize the last three albums have been a certain way. I know I\\\'ve gotten a lot of bad publicity for them. Somehow I feel like I\\\'ve surfaced out of some kind of murk. And the proof will be in my next album.”
