Neil Young fans have a reason to be excited. The ‘Godfather of Grunge’ recently announced that he’s working on a new archival album featuring material from the 1980s. This includes music he made with his band Crazy Horse and unreleased studio work with his ‘Saturday Night Live’ band. Though there’s no specific date for the album’s release, we can expect to see it sometime in 2021.
Today we look back at Neil Young’s solo tour that came to Connecticut 10 years ago this month.
Today’s Throwback Concert:
Twisted Road Tour
Special Guest: Bert Jansch
Sunday May 23, 2010
Toyota Oakdale Theatre – Wallingford
About The Tour:
Neil Young kicked off his Twisted Road solo tour on May 18, 2010 at the Palace Theater in Albany, New York. The tour made stops in only a handful of cities in 2010, mostly in historic theaters like Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and Washington D.C.’s Constitution Hall.
Neil returned to the Toyota Oakdale Theatre for his first solo show there in over a decade. Neil last played Oakdale in 2004, but at the time he brought his band Crazy Horse with him. This time in 2010 it was billed a solo performance, much like the 1999 show in Wallingford.
Neil Young entertained the Oakdale audience with a variety of songs from his impressive catalog in a very intimate solo setting. Fans got to hear both classics from his solo career, his songs with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Crazy Horse as well as brand new material. Overall, this 17-song, 90 minute performance gave fans, both young and old, a night to remember.
