It's OK, Neil Young doesn't even play his good songs anymore...
EDIT: Oh, if he was playing all the hits than that is heartbreaking...
Sorry, but something about your initial comment reminded me of what lots of people told themselves after Alfie left. Such a shame they won't be coming- I was holding out hope that Poncho would have healed in time once I heard they had canceled their European tour.

I agree that their new album was kind of a farce, though.
ahhh hits show would be sweet new album is absolutely terrible show, I've seen it it's aweful.
I'm going to respectfully disagree.
I can understand why people might not want to go to a show touring new material, that makes a lot of sense and is fine. But what really got to me was people going to see a Neil Young show on a tour specifically for his new album (which is a very good album), and then complaining that he played new material. It's asinine.
The show was good. Had I not heard the new album, I probably would have not liked it nearly as much.......but I also wouldn't go to a band's show on a tour promoting a new album, and not expect to hear songs from that album....
I've been in and out of this thread with bits of info as I have them. I love live music and have the fortune of knowing two people closely connected with the live entertainment scene in Ottawa. When the Neil Young cancellation was announced, I was bummed and spoke to a friend who works closely with Bluesfest. I was assured that they are working on a good replacement, but may also have an amazing one.
The good one came to pass (City and Colour) but the amazing one didn't. I learned on the weekend who Monahan almost had booked. Bruce Springsteen.
It seems that Bruce will be between a NA set and a European set and has some open dates. Negotiations took place but ultimately Bruce decided to head to Europe early for some time off.
