From review in Worcester Telegram & Gazette "Forever Young!" by Craig S. Semon:
Not only will rock 'n' roll never die; if Neil Young's sold-out performance last night at the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts is any indication, it gets better with age.
As part of his solo “Twisted Road Tour,” and following opener Bert Jansch, Young gave the lucky Neilophiles and Rusties who packed the place a no-frills, passionate performance that was one part retrospective, one part reinvention and one part relaxed rehearsal. His 18-song, one-hour-and-45-minute set (which included a two-song encore) consisted of seven new songs, eight gems from the '70s, two nuggets from the '60s and one unreleased song that before his current tour hasn't been played for 18 years.
There are few veteran rockers who can capture an audience with the sole grace of their words on intimate issues dealing with relationships, romance, personal redemptions, hopes and regrets, and Young is certainly one of them. This show was for Young's most loyal and dedicated fans who are patient for songs to unfold and reveal their genuine rock 'n' roll heart.
Review continues in Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
Neil Young will be performing tonight at the Hanover Theatre Worcester, MA. Special guest Bert Jansch will open concert.
