Neil Young to play in his home­town?

The Daily Courier - - LIFE ARTS -

OMEMEE, Ont. (CP) — An­tic­i­pa­tion is grow­ing in Omemee, Ont., amid ru­mours that home­town hero Neil Young is re­turn­ing Fri­day to play a con­cert.

On Nov. 11, Young teased that he would be “go­ing to my town” for the con­cert, spark­ing spec­u­la­tion that he might be head­ing to Omemee, where he lived for a few years as a child.

While or­ga­niz­ers have not con­firmed the lo­ca­tion for the show, which will be streamed live on and on Face­book out­side Canada, lo­cal me­dia say streets around the venue are closed through Satur­day to ac­com­mo­date the con­cert.

There have also been re­ports of large trans­port trucks marked as “sound and light stag­ing” parked near Corona­tion Hall.

Sev­eral Twit­ter users in Omemee — pop­u­la­tion 1,271, ac­cord­ing to the 2016 cen­sus — also posted pho­tos of trucks and other ac­tiv­ity out­side the hall.

There is no in­for­ma­tion on tick­ets for the con­cert.
