Neil Young & Crazy Horse Concert: Ulm, Germany - July 20, 2014

From bh @ Bad News Beat:

After cancelling the Israel show due to the continuous and increasing violence there, Neil has added two appropriate songs to the Ulm, Germany set list:

1. Living With War album of the same name; played 35 times before.

I'm living with war everyday
I'm living with war in my heart everyday
I'm living with war right now

And when the dawn breaks I see my fellow man
And on the flat-screen we kill and we're killed again
And when the night falls, I pray for peace
Try to remember peace (visualize)

I join the multitudes
I raise my hand in peace
I never bow to the laws of the thought police
I take a holy vow
To never kill again
To never kill again

I'm living with war in my heart
I'm living with war in my heart and my mind
I'm living with war right now

Don't take no tidal wave
Don't take no mass grave
Don't take no smokin' gun
To show how the west was won
But when the curtain falls, I pray for peace
Try to remember peace (visualize)

In the crowded streets
In the big hotels
In the mosques and the doors of the old museum
I take a holy vow
To never kill again
Try to remember peace

The rocket's red glare
Bombs bursting in air
Give proof through the night,
That Our flag is still there

I'm living with war everyday
I'm living with war in my heart everyday
I'm living with war right now.

2. Name of Love from American Dream; has only been played 19 times in the past and hasn't been played live in 26 years. Details:

You who rule upon the land,
You hold the future in your hand,
When you take your people down the road,
Before another bomb explodes.
Can you do it in the name of love?
Can you do it in the name of love?

And when you sail upon the sea
This one's for you, this one's for me.
Before another missile flies
You who soar into the sky
Can you do it in the name of love?
Can you do it in the name of love?

And so I shout it around the world
To every boy and every girl,
Yeah, I shout it around the world
To every boy and every girl,
Can you do it in the name of love?
Can you do it in the name of love?

Can you do it in the name of love?

Thanks bh @ BNB!

So intense how Neil responds through his music to the ongoing violence in the world these days.

From our FB page a great review posted by Ruby Inthedust


This show would require 10 headlines... but I chose this one! As the show hadn't selled as good as the city of Ulm had expected (unbelievable), Neil and his management decided to promote the show and gave a special gift to all those, who went to see him.. a t-shirt. The men's style is the one Neil's wearing, saying EARTH and the girlie's style (yes! a special girlie-fit :-) ) says PROTECT! So a couple says PROTECT EARTH when both are wearing the tees... what a simple but fabulous idea!

It was a very special show. It was Neil the warrior, raising his voice against war, encouraging us all to "love and only love" and worrying about the future of our planet as our gift to the future generations. He was powerful, intense, nice, smiling, enjoying himself, like I never saw him before!

Love And Only Love... will endure... the message of the night, the first song, intense as always. Goin' Home, I love that song since they played it twice in one show in Rotterdam 2001... After that "Days That Used To Be"... oh .. hard song for me in these days. .tears!
" I wish I could talk to you,
And you could talk to me
'Cause there's very few of us left
my friend
From the days that used to be."
"People say "Don't rock the boat".... yes very true Neil!

And then ... the first chord and I said "That's Living With War!" was!! Neil announced it as "a song we never did before" (with CH) and then something I don't recall exactly, like "sadly we could play it every day..."... so fitting in these days of war and deaths of innocent people, chills!

Love To Burn! A very special song to me..."Late one night I was walking in the valley of hearts"... what a wonderful metaphor! Love To Burn was absolutely stunning... He nailed that song to the floor of the stage.. it seemed to be going on forever... intense and raw! Wooo hooo!

Do It In The Name Of Love was the biggest surprise to me... rarely played live... if ever before?? Ralf Böllhoff said it in his review on Rusted Moon, it was played before in the 80s, right? What a song and what a message to all of us!

The entire show seemed to have a strong message with Neil looking up to the cathedral's high tower several times during Love And Only Love and In The Name Of Love, as if he wanted to say "You there, living in this church, give us your spirit, help us to live in peace and with love".

The acoustic set to follow... Blowin'In The one ever sings it as intense as Neil... with the entire crowd singing along... chills again! And Heart Of Gold... mmmhhh.

Psychedelic Pill is not my favorite song of the last album... but it rocks live!... but then.... but then.... one chord and I thought "wake me up, I must be dreaming"... I was yearning for that song since 2012, when I saw Neil with the Horse first in the US... I saw 10 shows in total... but not one with my favorite Neil song! And here it was, in all his entire epic beauty... Cortez! I was screaming and hugging all my Rustie-friends surrounding me... I was in heaven! YES!!!

RITFW... part of the night's message... Love, Peace, Freedom, Saving Mother Nature! That song always gets the audience... always!

(cont. from Ruby Inthedust)

Who's gonna stand up and save the earth... The last song of the night.. like Neil giving his legacy to us... but wait! No legacy yet... Neil is so vital, so powerful, there's a lot more to come!!!

They all were in a very good mood. Poncho in his "zone", eyes closed, grooving, smiling! Rick expressive, as I never saw him before, coming to the front twice, smiling, happy! Well and Ralph, like always... the back-bone of the awesome Crazy Horse sound! The ladies added a wonderful touch of lightness, especially adding a wonderful "dancing across the water" with Cortez!

Neil seemed to like the place. His body language and his smiles showed, he was enjoying himself. And so were we! Neil, you still have to say SOMETHING, please don't stop! We love you! ... and we attented a special night! Thank you so much!

Hello Ruby Inthedust.

WOW, that's as sens...-uous-ational-able-timental-ory-itive a report/review as I have read or experienced of an evening with Neil Young!

Some additional thoughts on Cortez performed in Ulm..

This morning in my car I was listening to a great recording of the Ulm-Show. And I realized, that Cortez was the smoothest version of that song I've listened to so far. It was intense, but so soft, almost tenderly performed! I think it is Rick, who gives it a soft touch, with him playing his bassline less powerful than Billy, but so beautiful! My heart is still full and I will never forget that magical night in Ulm!... I can't wait for Mönchengladbach and two more shows to come!!!

Thanks to Thrasher for posting my comment on his internet-page! As it was my first and favorite Neil-source on the internet, I'm feeling honored!

And thank you for your kind word game (ooops... a Stills-song ;-) ), Sony
