NEIL Young's Honour The Treaties tour rolls into the Centennial Concert Hall on Thursday night.

The four-date tour, which kicked off Sunday night at Toronto's Massey Hall and also features Diana Krall, is raising money and awareness for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defence Fund, which is challenging oil companies and governments that are obstructing First Nations' rights as they attempt to expand development of the oil sands in Northern Alberta.
