Sarah McLachlan Foundation Concert with Neil Young and Sheryl Crow

"Long May You Run"

Thanks HarryO!

Just as Neil Young walked onstage, a meteor streaked across the sky above the stage.

  • Sarah McLachlan and Neil Young at Ambleside Park, Sept 12 | Guttersnipe

  • - Entertainment_Wire - Neil Young plays Sarah McLachlan charity gig Saturday in West Vancouver park

    From Twitter Feed:

    Neil Young delivered an intimate folk set with his wife and a slide guitar player. Ah - just wonderful. #ambleside

    "Played in an 11-hour concert today for over 9000 people… Pictures/met with Sarah McLachlan, Neil Young, Sheryl Crow… Never forget 09/12/09."

    Neil Young acoustic set at Ambleside in WV on Saturday highlighted by Powderfinger and Pocahontas. The eastbound CN Rail train added charm.

    Neil Young just finished, absolutely epic. Very cool to see a legend like him play live. Sarah McLachlan will be on soon.

    set list from Rust - looks a good one:

    Going back
    Birds (grand piano)

    With Ben Keith on dobro, Pegi on vocals:
    Sail away
    Old king (banjo)
    Long may you run
    Light a candle
    Human highway
    Hold back the tears

    Bring back THE HORSE!

    listening to Rust Radio right now, a show from 2004, Neil and the Horse in Albuquerque.


    No disrespect to neil's current touring band, but I yearn for the days of the Horse!

    It was a great show and a very nice way to celebrate my birthday -- a trip to Canada, party with rusties, unusual set from Neil... set list from Rust was submitted by me from the venue and is accurate.

    Here is a video of Long May You Run:

    There is also the clip "Hold back the tears"

    with an extra verse in the middle:

    I call for a name out in the night
    I feel for someone
    But still something isn't right
    All those streets I hesitate to use
    Start looking better
    When night brings on the blues

    Love, Liza

    Thanks Homesick in Paradise, HarryO & Liza!

    It's all good sharing around the world. :)

    that extra verse, isn't that on the acetate version of 'American Stars & Bars' (or 'Chrome Dreams I'?)

    Peter Dees (Holland)

    The extra verse is on the Chrome Dreams version of the song. It's obviously referring to the use of prostitutes, but Neil's champions here will argue against that interpretation, as it doesn't suit their image of Neil.

    THAT is a hearty rendition of Hold Back the Tears! As good as I've seen of Neil. Could've been 30 years ago. Must be he's remastering his own live performances!

    Nice meteor video, but it wasn't filmed in West Vancouver. The only place I know of that has those sideways traffic lights is Alberta (and I doubt you could hear Neil from there - at least not an acoustic set).
