Neil Young Busts Out Prime Minister-Referencing Pocahontas In Toronto

Last night at Massey Hall in Toronto Neil Young kicked off a four-show run through Canada billed as "Honour The Treaties." The tour was put together to raise money for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defense Fund to fight the development of oil fields in Alberta. Young stuck mainly to the solo acoustic setlist he played at Carnegie Hall, with one major exception.

Fifteen songs into his 19-song main set Young dusted off the Rust Never Sleeps gem "Pocahontas" for the first time since 2009. Neil changed the some of the lyrics to reference Ottawa and Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper for the pump organ version of "Pocahontas" he performed last night. A video of "Pocahontas" has surfaced with grainy visuals, but with excellent audio. Take a listen:

Here's last night's setlist:
