It was a big night for residents living in the town of Omemee near Peterborough – population 1,271. Neil Young returned to his hometown Friday for an intimate concert in a venue that seats just 225 people. The concert location was kept secret until last minute and was open only to people who received tickets either through contests or by invitation. Young’s concert coincides with the release of his new album The Visitor.
