Neil Young announces Canadian Tour - No love for Montreal

Canadian legend Neil Young has just announced a new Canadian tour.  He will be performing solo in order to raise funds for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defense Fund.  The fund works to provide a legal defense aid to native Canadians.  This concert series dubbed "Honor the Treaties" tour will seek to assist native tribes in defending their land against oil companies.

Montreal will not be the host to the Neil Young tour.  If you are from Montreal and you want to see Neil Young in concert, a trip to Massey Hall in Toronto will probably be necessary. A legend playing at a legendary venue will compensate for the 6 hour drive or 45 minute plane ride.

The opening act for this four-date tour will be Allison Krauss.

01/12: Toronto, ON @ Massey Hall
