In The Future...Neil Young @ The Centennial Concert Hall; Crash Test Dummies @ The Burt

>> Monday, 7 June 2010

Update: presale code for CTD's show is, umm, dummies
Also, Wolf Parade's July 19th gig at the Garrick has been cancelled (thanks to Justin for the heads up).

Get out your wallets: Two of Winnipeg's most successful and revered musical exports are returning home.

First, on July 26th the ageless and virile Neil Young makes his third visit to Winnipeg in five years, this time at a considerably more intimate venue than the last: The Centennial Concert Hall. According to ticketmaster, tickets pull pretty heavy on the wallet, starting at $79.50 before maxing out at $274.25. To put the latter price into perspective, the entire 5-day Folk Festival pass is cheaper.

But, depending on your level of zealousness, the hefty price tag just might be worth it. The immortal rocker blew me away back in '08, and I am, admittedly, not the most devout Young fan.

Also, making their first appearance in Winnipeg since '01, underrated folk-pop group The Crash Test Dummies will be promoting their new record, Oooh-La La!, at the Burton Cummings Theatre on October 9th.

Fun fact: Brad Roberts and I share a High School alma mater. Murdoch Mackay in the T.

Re: Rieds.

Nopers. "Two of Winnipeg's most successful and revered" compared to other Winnipeg musical exports.

If I had typed "equally" instead of "most", that would've been a lazy comparison.

And blasphemous.
