Neil Young returned to the stage with backing band Crazy Horse on Monday night for the second of two shows in Winnipeg, Manitoba, this time moving to the city’s Centennial Concert Hall, and the iconic singer-songwriter continued to offer some rarities that he hadn’t played in years.
Once again, Young kicked off the performance with a set of solo tunes including “Distant Camera,” which he revived on Sunday evening, and the recently debuted “Green is Blue.” Young then teamed up with Crazy Horse—featuring bassist Billy Talbot, drummer Ralph Molina and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Nils Lofgren—for a set that opened up with “Rockin’ in the Free World” and included the first “Danger Bird” since 2013 followed immediately by the first “Wonderin'” since 1996 (the latter tune originally appeared on Young’s rockabilly-infused 1983 studio album featuring the Shocking Pinks, Everybody’s Rockin’). Young and Crazy Horse then wrapped up their stint in Winnipeg with “Cortez the Killer,” “Fuckin’ Up” and an encore of “Like a Hurricane” and “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black).”
See last night’s setlist below. Next up for Neil Young is a Northwest run in May leading up to his performance at California’s BottleRock festival. See that schedule below.

I’d be bummed if I went to a Crazy Horse show and 1/2 of it was solo Neil with no CH.
