It’s being billed as a “once-in-a-lifetime event,” as Canadian rock legend Neil Young “comes home” for an intimate concert, live from a “secret” location somewhere in Canada on December 1, 2017.
The Canadian rocker and singer-songwriter will perform an hour-plus-long concert in front of a tiny, intimate live audience on a stage somewhere in Canada. It has been widely rumoured that the concert will be streamed live from Young’s childhood home of Omemee, Ontario. The 72-year-old rocker lived in Omemee from ages 4 to 11.
The Secret Is Out OF The Bag
On Thursday, Kawartha Lakes announced parking restrictions and road closures from 6 p.m to 12 a.m., in Omemee to accommodate a special event on Friday, December 1. The city said the OPP will be onsite to ensure a safe environment for those attending, participating or directly affected by the event by ensuring an orderly movement of pedestrians and motor vehicles throughout the event.
