That's what I ask myself too! Why am I not in Oberhausen tonight? Will see the man on Friday in Weert. Hope he will play TFA again. Maybe he just decided to release the album finally... Neil does what Neil wants to do... B.S.M.

Time Fades Away!!! That's great. I hope he starts playing LA next. An even better song with a great riff.

I have heard 'Time Fades Away' live in concert, now my life is complete!!!! And the rest of the setlist, just WOW!!! I guess I'll be on cloud nine for the next weeks... :-)

My only negative point: Whoever had the idea that 'The Hives' would make a great supporting act should get a new job. The crowd was largely unimpressed, it seemed. (No wonder with this lead singer behaving like a 'Mini-Me Mick Jagger' :-)). I don't blame them as such, I just don't think this was the right kind of music/band for warming-up a Neil Young audience.

Amazing, that's the only way I can describe the concert last night, I thought that by now (following noon) my excitement would go down, but I still can't believe what I saw... Being one of the very few people who have seen Time Fades Away live (in the last 30 years) gives a nice feeling... as for the rest, only his version of All Along the Watchtower was worth the ticket... every song was bang-on, brilliant guitar playing by Mr. Young and great support group... Only 1 hour before the concert started I decided to go, can't believe I almost missed it...

I also was there last night and it was my first Neil Young Concert in my life! What great stuff! When I listened to TIME FADES AWAY first I could no believe in that what I saw and what I heard. It was as played Dylan directly from the middle 60s Tombstone Blues. Absolutely Great. Thanks Neil!

If Neil is playing Time Fades Away after all this time, maybe this means he's finally going to release the CD soon...fingers crossed!

Neil, PLEASE come to Montreal! You skipped us when you played North America, and I haven't seen you play live since the 80s :(

"A Day in the Life," "Time Fades Away," what's next? "Vampire Blues?"

Neil, please come back to the States and play these songs for us!

THIS A HIT - I mean this could be summer single hit. Who is able to post this to Neil? If MTV playes this version for 10 times...

You haven't seen him since the eighties, couple of posts above. Well, at least you've seen him.
