MP3: Download a Marathon Neil Young Show from Last Week

Neil crop2

Material from new Monsanto Years album along with a slew of old faves marked the 3 ½ hour show…

By Uncle Blurt

Neil Young is currently out on tour with Lukas Nelson’s band Promise of the Real in support of The Monsanto Years, which dropped June 29. Reviews of that album have been mixed, with a number of critics complaining that Neil is in full anti-corporate rant mode at the expense of tunefulness and rocking out. That’s not the case with the shows he’s been doing, however, with most of them clocking in at nearly 3 ½ hours and featuring plenty of songs being stretched out to more than 10 minutes (“Down By The River” is a tidy 17:16). And within this context, the new stuff works pretty nicely.

MP3: Neil Young – Lincoln, Nebraska 7/11/15

Click on the link above and it’ll take you to the Neil fans over at the Big O Zine website, who have kindly posted a show from last week recorded at Lincoln’s Pinnacle Bank Arena. The entire concert is available for free download, along with suitable-for-printing-out artwork. Of the performance, noted:

About 90 minutes into his concert at Pinnacle Bank Arena Saturday night, Neil Young strapped on “Old Black” and started to whistle, kicking off the jaunty “A Rock Star Bucks a Coffee Shop.” With Promise Of The Real chugging slim behind him like Crazy Horse, Young blasted Monsanto and Starbucks – and got a cheer from the crowd of more than 6,000 when he sang of the “fields of Nebraska,” while stating farmers won’t be able to grow what they want to grow. “We don’t want to offend anybody,” Young said in the only statement he made beyond “thank you” during the show. “But we won’t be happy till they’re not happy”…
