It all sounded the same.....

It was all one song....

Except: was WLAG really left of the setlist for the first time this tour? Can somebody confirm who was there?

Only a week til Ottawa. Hope he has some voice left after the Montreal show. Have to stop looking at the you tube stuff to leave a little bit of a surprise.

wish they would do twisted road with the full band - the solo acoustic just doesn't do the album version justice.

It was a great show, everything I had heard and expected it to be. Ramanda Inn and WLAG were amazing It felt like I was hearing something the likes of which I may never hear live again. This was my 5th Neil concert and 2nd with Crazy horse, each one just gets better. They guys DO NOT play or sound like a bunch of old men at all. Great to see him still at the top of his game!!

Didn't play nearly any of the songs he is known for. Everything blurred together as one long overkill.

14 songs last night. including CTK.. wow.

13 in Calgary with that punky version of Helpless. WOW.

i envy anyone with tickets for the remaining Canadian shows..

Haha - oh man, I needed that one, been a dull day so far.

sorry to be off topic, but just when I thought I had seen pretty much everything Neil on youtube, I stumbled on the 1997 NY&CH may 8 1997 san fran set that is jaw dropping.

I get the feed in canada here:

watch the second set first. incredible - CD quality audio (pro stealth set up). Throw your hatred down - gotta see it to believe it.

I saw two shows on the 1996 broken arrow tour, and this smokes them. Neil was on something this night. Some of the most energetic playing ever.

Is this the tour that was abruptly derailed when he cut his finger? - too bad - may have been the best tour ever.

sorry for the aside, but how did I never see this before.

now back to another really good tour...

Off topic. Blue Ray version of The Pill includes bonus track HORSE BACK 37 minute jam that after 20 minutes tumbles into Cortez. The accompanying film of Neil' studio & guitars is evocative and riveting. It's better than anything on the cd version. BUY IT!

Yeah, it's all one song. But there's something happening there. All the shows are about two hours and not so many setlist changes. Just like the Twisted Road tour. Neil could play these shows like he does now and add one extra hour of "greatest hits". There's a seventy year old bass player who did it like this last sunday in St. Louis.
Set list:

"Magical Mystery Tour"
"Junior's Farm"
"All My Loving"
"Drive My Car"
"Sing the Changes"
"The Night Before"
"Let Me Roll It" (including "Foxy Lady" instrumental)
"Paperback Writer"
"The Long and Winding Road"
"Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five"
"Maybe I'm Amazed"
"I've Just Seen a Face"
"And I Love Her"
"My Valentine"
"Here Today"
"Dance Tonight"
"Mrs. Vandebilt"
"Eleanor Rigby"
"Band On the Run"
"Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da"
"Back in the USSR"
"I've Got a Feeling"
"A Day In the Life"
"Give Peace a Chance"
"Let It Be"
"Live and Let Die"
"Hey Jude"
"Lady Madonna"
"Day Tripper"
"Get Back"
"Helter Skelter"
"Golden Slumbers"
"Carry That Weight"
"The End"

Yes, I saw him a week later on 5/19/97 at the Catalyst, best show I've ever seen by Neil & CH ... they were smoking to say the least ... Neil was supposed to play a second night (5/20/97) and cut his finger and they cancelled the show and then he was out for a couple of months until the HORDE tour in JUly '97.

incredible version of 'Prisoners'!!!!

Thank you so much for the SF show link. really great stuff. you really get a good comparison of the quality of the songs compared to this tour. It just leaves this tour in the dust.But, what these new songs lack he makes up for in unusual enthusiasm and spirit at the live shows. I loved the show I saw in August but cant imagine listening to Psycadelic Pill in my living room. Its just too been there, heard that.
