The folk-rock legend has announced plans to play an intimate solo acoustic concert from his “Canadian hometown,” which will be streamed live on his official Facebook page at 8 p.m. ET that day.

While the location of the show hasn’t been specified, Young spent his part of his childhood in the Toronto suburb of Omemee, Ontario. In a recent Facebook post about the event, Neil wrote, “December 1st will be a big day for me. The Visitor will be coming to your town. I will be going to my town. You will be able to hear me and see me.”

The concert also will be viewable in Canada at

In a separate Facebook message regarding the online concert, Young has posted a yellow notepad featuring what appears to be a set list that features songs from throughout his career. It includes “On the Way Home,” “Love Is a Rose,” “Harvest Moon,” “Journey Through the Past,” “War of Man” and seven more titles.

In addition, the 72-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer will launch his new website NYA — The Neil Young Archives on December 1. Young first announces plans for the site in August — according to a press statement, it’s “a comprehensive chronological collection of [Neil’s] entire recorded music, films, videos and books, audio streaming in Master Quality.” The content will be accessible via a new high-resolution streaming service called Xstream by NYA.

Young says that when the website first launches, all the content will be free.
