Neil Young, notable golden-voiced singer/songwriter legend, just announced not zero, not one, not two, not four, but three Minneapolis concerts set for January.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer refuses to hunker down, it seems, and instead will hop along the so-called WeDo district -- from Pantages Theatre (Jan. 26) to Orpheum Theatre (Jan. 28) to the State Theater (Jan. 29). These solo acoustic shows will be Young's first Twin Cities performances since a 2010 gig at Northrop. Tickets are available now via Ticketmaster, but you've gotta unlock 'em with a code provided to Neil Young Archives members ($20 annual fee; loads of music included). Info on the public sale date was not made immediately available.
