UPDATED: It is Official! Neil Young Will Play Olympics Closing Ceremonies

UPDATE: Full Video of Neil Young at Olympics Closing Ceremonies

Re-Fresh for Updates

Neil Young
"Long May You Run"
Vancouver Olympics Closing Ceremony: Winter Games 2010

Neil Young performed "Long May You Run" for the Vancouver Olympics Closing Ceremony: Winter Games 2010. Snow drifted down from ceiling as Neil strolled about with harmonica rack and Hank Williams' Martin D-28 guitar.

Following Young's performance, the cauldrons were extinguished and the torch arms retracted.

Many, many 1000's of instant mini-reviews on Twitter indicated that Young's performance was highlight of closing ceremonies. Many felt that what followed Young's performance was a travesty and embarrassment to music fans and Canada's heritage.

A brief video clip of Neil Young Olympics.


Somewhat surprising poll results of what song Neil Young would play at Olympics.

"Long May You Run" -- which was played -- came in 5th with 8%.

"Oh Canada" was voted #1 with 19%, followed by "Four Strong Winds" with 16%. next -- our vote "Rockin' in the Free World" with 8%

The surprise was "This Note's For You" in 3rd with 15%. Can't figure that one? Probably the result of the f'n Freepers cramming the poll. Get a life.

Official Neil Young Tour Page

It is official! Neil Young will play the Olympics Closing ceremonies tonight.

Neil Young's Official Tour Page has just been updated with tonight's date.

So how about all of those rumors we've been hearing about all week?! In the immortal words of Pete Townshend, "We won't get punk'd again."

So what will Neil Young will play the Olympics Closing ceremonies tonight?

Something new. You can enter a new song entry if not already listed in poll. Ok, that doesn't seem to be working. Drop a suggested song in comments & we'll try and add.

I'm a dreamin' man, guess that's my problem.

Neil at Vancouver 2010 : what a joke. I hope Neil will surprise me, because right now he disappoints me ... and a lot ! I thought Neil was not as Bono, Elton John or Celine Dion.Maybe I was wrong.
Only Crazy Horse can save him now. Get back to the roots of the gawdamn thing. SHIT

Oh simply because Neil is a god of garage rock and roll and not of merchandising, and because Vancouver 2010, clearly, is not a ecological event. Remember This note's for you ? Been a long time.

I can envision an all-star Canadian blow-out finale with RITFW cranked up to 11 followed by massive fireworks, confetti, balloons, lasers, etc.

Maybe be the debut of a re-formed Crazy Horse for a bonus?

But what the f do we know? We're just a dreamin man...

Boy, again with Neil Young the sell out. It's probably not worth commenting on, except to say that if that's your take, you obviously don't know WTF you're talking about. I'm thinking RITFW, but who knows? I'd love something from the new album, too, but then we'd have to listen to more braying that he's just promoting his new album, or some other asinine thing from people who can't think past their belly button. Whatever it is, I'll be glad to hear it, that is if I can somehow remember one of the central things that defines Neil: "Just do what you want. Don't listen to anyone else."

Well, before the link...Who picked it?

Like every other 'Neiler',I didn't really care what he played!

The fact that he was invited to play as a born Canadian is such an honour to his heritage...and...a testament to his legend status, reflected at such a prestigous

Personally, I would have thought a grand finale on electric, doin' some more 'anthemic', iconic number would have had a bigger impact, although I do see the significance of the tune he selected.

Hey...a bigger audience than the days playin' the coffee shops in Ontario just the same!

Thanks Neil for giving such a warm and human performance to close out the best Winter Olympics ever. You are the master.

Thanks for all the amazing athletes and their families and friends. Especially thanks to the Canada and USA hockey teams for playing a game for the ages. God bless Brendan Burke. Favorite single scene...when they showed Joanie Rochette. Time fades away....

I must be the only one who thinks not playing After the Gold Rush was a huge missed opportunity. The song is beautiful, nostalgic, Canadian - and it would have fit the occasion in so many ways.

A few: Canada - all-time Gold Medal champs.

Kim Yu-Na - the new "Queen" of ladies figure skating.

Plus, Young already played "Long May You Run" weeks earlier - and more fittingly - at Conan's last show.

The citizen of the planet playing to his audience, now that's cool! How big was that audience across the globe?

I think he said a few years back, "it's a solo gig" so when I saw him with the floor to himself it made perfect sense to me. Can you imagine how he felt?

Has there been any bigger? or as big? Elvis, Lennon, Dylan?

Everybody's alone! He's in a league of his own.

Happy = being a Neil Young fan!

I'm guessing that's the largest world-wide audience Neil has ever played in front of.

I can't imagine anything being close.

He did LiveAid, he did the Oscars, he did a 9-11 tribute........but i doubt any come close to last night.

Alone, in black, under the torch that died out as he ended? That was unbelievably cool! The funny thing is, how many of the athletes, let alone audience in general, had any idea about the song. A beautiful elegy..... to a car.

Fuckin' Shakey. He did it again.

Just when people mistakenly assume the eco-friendly car is out of gas, he revs it up and with a whisper, roars over the entire Olympic closing ceremonies. After the hours of phoniness, the children lip-syncing to auto-tuned tracks (all of whom will be forgotten in a matter of months, or perhaps a few years if they're really lucky), Neil fires up the ultimate number for the road. I feel bad about not expecting him to fly. I should have known better.

What's something every athlete has in common? They run. From snowboarders to ice skaters to bobsled team leaders, they run, and the longer they run, the longer they live their dreams. While "Long May you Run" may seem on the surface to be a simple homage to a long-dead hearse, in our hearts we know what it really means.

Forget all the extraneous stuff. Forget the merchandising, the corporate sponsors. Instead, keep in mind the young people who are wrapping up the dreams that they've been preparing for as long as they can remember. Keep in mind that due to the very nature of athleticism, the skill will diminish long before they're ready. The knees will inevitably be injured, the muscle tone will diminish. And the desire to win, so strong in youth, will eventually give way to more mundane hopes and wishes.

What can you hope for such a person? What can you offer that applies to each of them on an equal level? Only Neil Young has the answer: "Long May You Run". Neil wasn't singing to the prime minister, nor the head of the IOC. He wasn't singing to you or me, watching on TV at home. He was singing to every one of those athletes who made it to the culmination of the dream, and yet have so long to continue on. All they want to do is to be able to keep running. Watch their reaction as Old Neil strums his even older Martin guitar. Watch as the message sinks in and hits home. And then acknowledge Neil Young, not only as the greatest singer or songwriter of our time, but as the ultimate communicator spanning multiple generations, one who chooses a message that's perfect for the occasion. We all should have known he'd come through, and that his very choice to appear at such an event was done for a reason that was much bigger than being on the world's biggest stage. He sang to those who most deserved to hear him, and imbued all of them with something they can take home that in some ways is more vital that the shiny medals round their necks.

Long may he run.

One word sums up Canada's invitation
to Neil Young appearing at the Olympics..."Appreciated". No "sorry" or "oops", we didn't invite you.
The performance was all it should have been.
I'm just glad he wasn't wearing a mountie uniform!

Canada put on a great Olympics! Right up there with Lillehammer (which was fantastic). The Canadians have such great self-depricating humor. They are like Minnesotans in that way - a nation of witty Garrison Keilors, but with their own brand of experiences. Very quirky and real. In that context, Neil Young is the quinessential Canadian, even after all those years in California.

Is it any wonder that the north country has produced such people as Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and Bob Dylan?

But, okay, now. I have had my full serving of Long May You Run. I'm ready for the next thing.

I would have enjoyed "Four Strong Winds" more (and think it would have fit the situation better), but it was a good performance by Neil and I'm glad he did it.

I loved the song he chose, as any as he would, as always so appropiate, I put my mobile to wake me up, (in the middle of the night in Europe) to see him again live, but now I can't see the video again as I'm not from the Usa...sad! I liked him perform solo on the ground, not on the stage as the other "stars"... he's the Universe all toghether!

Neil really deserves all these acknowledgments. It's also a good publicity for Neil and naturally I'm happy for him.I know that these performances, tv shows and so on have a big emotional impact on many people. Not on me, anyway.I'm not a big fan of these great things. I don't think that there is much art in these exhibitions. Anyway, I don't even watch the television.I have found more passion on the Neil heartfelt words in the last BD live, dedicated to the dead companions(dated 21 january, meaningfully).I think that LMYR is also for all these people and Johnson in particular. Just an opinion, anyway.

Anonymous 6:58,

"After the Gold Rush"...hmmm that's inneresting you bring that song up.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you got me thinking.(no,don't correct me yet!)...

I've never really heard Neil do this at any of his "live" recent concerts.

Is it that Neil's "early seventies Neil" voice...high beautiful and piercing on ATGR, is not as reachable today?

Like a red wine maturing with age, his voice's taste and texture are changing.

Dreamin man, HOG... beautiful sounds end emotions conveyed through Neil's voice in song....

Sugar Mountain, Massey Hall..that touch of innocence in his voice that sadly might never be reached today ,live, as Neil ages gracefully and sings with a maturity and contentment, that we too, as fans, are aging with ourselves.

Yeah, After the Goldrush (the song) IS from another era ,another time.

I love nostalga, I love that period from the seventies, and I'm glad I experienced these days first hand....but I also love, with anticipation, the unpredictibility and spontaneity of Neil's musical direction today.

As I've said on a previous post..what other artist with such an incredible and changing musical career spanning some 50 yrs, is producing and inspiring us with music that spans every generation?

line'm up baby..coz I can't think of any like Neil!

Last night I saw Jonathan Demme's new movie on Neil -- Neil Young Trunk Show. I went from Hartford to Boston to see it. I cannot wait for everyone to see it. It will knock your socks off. Absolutely amazing. A bookend to Prairie Wind, but an opposite, not a matching one. It is raw and visceral and full of the power (I don't know what other word to use) of N.Y.'s music.

Power and soulfulness.

His voice is in great shape. His "reading," his inflections and changes in phrasing are masterful. His guitar playing is unworldly. He's totally at home and in the groove and at the peak of his powers. And the concert shows the range of his emotion and vision. There is so much there that most people just grab bits of it. I'm a huge fan and I came away thinking, "Is it possible I have underestimated this man?"

The genius of Demme is that he puts you right in Young's world. If someone says, "why do you love Neil Young?" you can just hand them this DVD. They will either watch with mouth agape and join us or be totally befuddled.

Last but not least: The SOUND quality is 4 stars. You hear the best versions of those songs you will ever hear, unless you were at the concert. I heard substantially the same concert in Boston a few days later in 2007 and I felt I was taken back to that place .

Magic, magic music making. This film is a gift from above.

Well, there you go Anonymous!

I didn't know or never heard this!..

although that doesn't surprise me..I'll rescind everything I just said..coz after reading Keith's comments which I fully endorse,
I too am loving this quality of Neil's voice.

My only point I was making was these songs, with his voice changing, take on a new interpretation which is never really a bad thing when it comes to Neil..

Although its a bit of a worry when he forgets his own lyrics! lol, tic

thanks doc
