EPIC + Cortez Video: Melbourne, AUS Concert by Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Mar 13, 2013
Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Cortez the Killer [Live Melbourne 13/3/2013]
That's what we're hearing over and over again, my friend, regarding last night's Neil Young & Crazy Horse concert in Melbourne, AUS. Clocking in at 3 hours, the longest Alchemy tour show so far with 18 songs. Dangerbird, Barstool Blues and Sedan Delivery are tour debuts with Cortez The Killer making first appearance of 2013.
An amazing night by all accounts.
The setlist breaks down as follows:
American Stars and Bars 1
Everybody Knows This is Nowhere 1
Psychedelic Pill 4
Ragged Glory 1
Rust Never Sleeps 3
Has there ever been a better set list than this one?! (Thanks Mr Henry!)
Alchemy Never Sleeps (in Melbourne)?
After some of the earlier doubter reviewers, we were wondering what was going on Down Under but it would seem that all of Australia has come to its senses and are now "believers".

To quote Stevie Wonder,
"I'm too high, I'm too high, hope I never ever come down".
The Plenary gig was transcendent.
I don't expect the Horse to match it at Rod Laver, but really don't care.
To have been there, was to witness some of the most alive and truly live,performance moments. Neil was right out there, and the Horse did there best to follow. The guitar work was awesome's big daddy, and the Crazy horse harmonies, angelic.
Danger Bird...what a treat! It was so slow, the whole thing was in danger of stopping mid air, but somehow, miraculously, the bird flew, and soared. Incredible. Sedan delivery and Barstool blues, also unforgettable. It felt like we were carried into a timeless space, and honestly, I could have stayed all nite in that space. It was amazing to see the time at the end.
There was magic over the band, and magic for all with eyes to hear, see and feel.
I've been to many NY gigs over the years.
Nothing...nothing comes close to this gig.
Thank you Neil.
Thankyou Crazy Horse.
Godspeed to you and yours,
see you on Friday nite for more 'hit you in the heart' music.
I've thrown away all my medicine.
I've taken the cure. :-)
So glad you got a transcendent gig "Winterlong". Thanks for the comment.
