Neil Young Dusts Off Classic Material at Hometown Show

Neil Young returned home to Omemee, Ontario for a special intimate show on Friday night at Coronation Hall, a 225-capacity room that played host to the invite-only show.

Those who couldn’t attend got a chance to watch the acoustic concert on CTV, who streamed the show through various platforms as Young dug deep into his catalog for a number of notable performances throughout the 18-song set.

Among those standouts, the first rendition of the banjo-tinged “Old King” since 2009 about halfway through the show. Young then took to the piano for a mega bustout, the first version of his Harvest track “There’s a World” since 1971. Young then debuted his collaborative track with Promise of the Real “Stand Tall” for the first time by himself.

Young mixed old with classic, delivering the bustouts while also peppering the set with well-known tunes like “Long May You Run,” “Old Man,” “Helpless” and “Heart of Gold” before the three-song encore “One of These Days,” “Mother Earth” and “Sugar Mountain.”

Here’s a look at the setlist:
