Neil Young Comes to Palace Theatre

April 5th, 2010, 5:22 pm by Greg

Fans will get an up-close-and-personal concert, when Neil Young kicks off his “Twisted Road” solo tour with a stop at the Palace Theatre in Albany on Tuesday, May 18.

It will be Young’s first solo acoustic tour in more than a decade, and Young is promising to mix in new, unreleased songs along with his classics on the tour.

Other nearby stops on Young’s concert tour include Shea’s Performing Arts Center in Buffalo (May 19), the Hanover Theatre in Worcester, Mass. (May 21) and the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, Conn. (May 23).

Opening the show will be veteran British guitarist Bert Jansch, one of Young’s major musical influences. “Bert Jansch is on the same level as Jimi Hendrix,” Young said in 1992. “That first record of his is epic. It came from England, and I was especially taken by ‘The Needle of Death,’ such a beautiful and angry song. That guy was so good.”

Additional details – including ticket prices and on-sale dates – to come soon.

    I’ve seen Neil only twice before. Once with the Bluenotes (Weedsport Speedway) and once solo (NY State Fair). This is an amazing opportunity to see him in an intimate setting. And Bert Jansch to boot?!? …so the Nippertown ticket giveaway begins exactly when?

  2. If there was a line for this, I would set up a chair now. AMPED. Thanks for the tip.

    Woo-Hoo!! Saw Neil solo acoustic at the Tower Theatre on the Harvest Moon tour, in Hershey for the Greendale tour and with Crazy Horse in Philly.

    I’m working up here in Albany during the week so a Tuesday night show is right up my alley!

    Yeah, tickets are around $125-150 at similarly sized theatres on the tour, with the seats up front going for up to $245 in some places! Hey, the cheap seats are around $65 or so, plus T**********r service and convenience charges (add another $20 or 30). Have fun, everyone.
