From Nippertown!:
Fans will get an up-close-and-personal concert, when Neil Young kicks off his “Twisted Road” solo tour with a stop at the Palace Theatre in Albany on Tuesday, May 18. It will be Young’s first solo acoustic tour in more than a decade, and Young is promising to mix in new, unreleased songs along with his classics on the tour. Opening the show will be veteran British guitarist Bert Jansch, one of Young’s major musical influences. “Bert Jansch is on the same level as Jimi Hendrix,” Young said in 1992. “That first record of his is epic. It came from England, and I was especially taken by ‘The Needle of Death,’ such a beautiful and angry song. That guy was so good.” Additional details – including ticket prices and on-sale dates – to come soon.
