What a great fucking show. Neil is the greatest guitar player I've ever seen live. Period.
And they played Cortez...
Perfect. What a night.



Greetings from Portugal.

I've seen him before with Booker T. and with Crazy Horse. No doubt that his songs sound different when played by each backing band, but are always great live versions. The man, himself goes from epic to sweet, and noisy.
Lisbon top moments (in my own opinion...): Cortez, Rockin' in a Free World, Heart of Gold & Words. Less songs than on previous shows, but when you a get an epic "Cortez..." played for so long... it doesn´t matter!

Setlist (I hope I didn't miss any...):

1 Love And Only Love
2 Powderfinger
3 Spirit Road
4 Cortez the Killer
5 Rockin' in a Free World
6 Oh, Lonesome Me
7 Mother Earth
8 The Needle And The Damage Done
9 Unknown Legend
10 Heart Of Gold
11 Old Man
12 Get Back To The Country
13 Words
14 No Hidden Path
15 A Day In The Life

How long was Cortez?

Was this show broadcast on TV?

 
At 7/14/2008 01:27:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

well the whole festival was broadcasted live on tv but Neil did not allow them to broadcast his show. Ben harper and donavon frankenreiter did, Neil did not...tell me why?
I was really hoping to follow the show since i could not be there...Mr disappointment!

 
At 7/14/2008 11:06:00 PM, Blogger Greg McGarvey said...

Bummer. Does anyone know if any of the shows on the next leg will be broadcast?

Also, does anyone know if there's a chance the Rock In Rio Madrid performance will be re-broadcast without commercials?

They probably wanted to broadcast the event in a compressed audio format, something many TV & radio stations do these days... and Neil opted against it. Not sure if it was the reason, but if that's why Neil said "no" I am fine with it... to hell with compressed audio !!!

Grande espectáculo. Grande Artista, com a música no sangue, transbordante. O Neil que amo há 30 anos e que vou amar sempre....pois, a música é eterna e felizmente.....it's a long road.
