It's not exactly correct. 'Phenomenal' is an adjective, but you have tried to use it as a noun. Removing the 'a' will correct that.  'Returned' is a little smoother than 'come back'.  'Nevertheless' means 'in spite of', which doesn't really fit the sentence. A simple 'and' would be more appropriate. The first word should be capitalized, and you need a period at the end.  Some would argue against capitalizing 'Maestro', but I like it.

Another problem is the use of 'has returned' and 'to play'. This implies that the concert hasn't occurred yet, so it can't yet be phenomenal.  I would change 'to play' to ' and played'.


The Maestro has returned to his hometown and played his last concert, and it was phenomenal.
