From Lincoln Journal Star by L. KENT WOLGAMOTT: (Thanks The Zuma Band!)
Unlike nearly all his contemporaries who are content to vacuum up the cash with greatest-hits shows, the 69-year-old Young continues to plow forward, playing new songs and deep catalog material.
That had him on point -- in fine, strong voice throughout, fully committed and locked in with the band in a sharply constructed set.
Promise of the Real is perfectly matched with Young, capable of handling the folk rock that made up the first third of the show and cutting loose on the rockers, new and, with a blazing, long "Down By the River," old.
From the time a pair of women in floppy hats and cutoff overalls came out tossing grain on stage and watering flowers to open the show, through the final stomp and ring of "Cinnamon Girl," the concert ran three hours 20 minutes -- the longest show yet for Pinnacle Bank Arena.
It was also one of the arena's very best shows, right up with Paul McCartney's 2014 concert. That show was sold out. This one should have been.
Neil Young + Promise of the Real will be performing tonight, July 11, 2015, on the Rebel Content Tour at Pinnacle Bank Arena, Lincoln, NE.
