Toronto Sun: Young to play Massey Hall

Young to play Massey Hall
Last Updated: April 13, 2011 1:33am / Toronto Sun

Canadian folk-rocker Neil Young will play Toronto’s Massey Hall on May 10-11 as part of his previously announced solo North American tour in support of his latest album, Le Noise.

Tickets, $89.50, $139.50 & $189.50, go on sale Friday (April 15) at Ticketmaster, the Roy Thomson Hall box office, by phone at 1-855-985-5000 or online at ,, and

Young’s opening act will be Bert Jansch.

The Massey Hall concerts are also scheduled to be captured on film by director Jonathan Demme, as the final installment in a concert film trilogy, joining 2006’s Neil Young: Heart of Gold and 2008’s Neil Young Trunk Show.

The Toronto-born, Winnipeg-raised Young, who will play both acoustic and electric guitar at the Massey shows, was recently in T.O. where he picked up two Junos for artist of the year and adult alternative album of the year for Le Noise and the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award.

The 65-year-old singer-musician also recently won his second-ever Grammy for best rock song for Angry World, a track off Le Noise, produced by Canadian Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, The Neville Brothers).
The Massey Hall concerts will take place 40 years after Young’s legendary 1971 solo Massey Hall concert, in which he unveiled many of the songs that would form the body of one of his most celebrated albums, Harvest.

There\\\'s no real way to describe this show. I mean, there are cardboard cutouts of cars up there. At points, it looks like you\\\'re watching a high school play. It\\\'s worth seeing just for the spectacle of it all.
