The pickings are slim for popular music concerts. But the major shows scheduled in the area include:
Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Capital Centre, Feb. 27. The veteran songwriter returns on the strength of "Ragged Glory." Besides guaranteeing plenty of the old stuff, Young brings two great up-and-comers to open the show.
INXS, Capital Centre, March 1. The Australian group makes its first local appearance in more than two years in support of their latest album, "X."
Paul Simon, Capital Centre, March 13. Simon leaves his African troupe of dancers home this time out and will perform 2 1/2 hours of his classic material mixed with songs from the current "Rhythm of the Saints" album. The tour opened earlier this month to rave reviews.
