English Rusty has left a new comment on your post "2nd Leg of Rebel Content Tour Announced: Neil Youn...":

I went to two of the shows in California, Santa Barbara and San Diego. I began to regret not getting tickets to the show at the Forum soon after the encore in Santa Barbara! Ironically, F*#!in' Up...The solo acoustic opening appeased the folks who came to hear the mellow stuff, the two hours that followed convinced me that Neil still has that "fire" inside, and Promise of the Real seems to have inspired him, as he no doubt inspired them. The San Diego show really was probably the best concert experience of my life. The all general admission seating, or standing if you chose the floor, provided the true fans of Neil Young the chance to get right down in front of the stage. Usually, the orchestra seats are occupied by the people who can afford them, not die hard Rusties! Taking my 19 year old daughter to that show made it extra special for me. She told a friend she made, who was there with his mom, that this was her second Neil Young show, and she has been listening to him her whole life...literally. She went to the solo acoustic show at The Dolby Theater in LA last year. She had been hearing Neil on my car stereo since she was a baby. Now that this leg of the tour is over, with only the Bridge School Benefit on the calendar, I wonder if there will be anymore shows, a live album or concert film? I really don't want the collaboration with Promise of the Real to be over. I do realize though that Neil will go wherever his muse leads him, and I will follow. Thanks You Thrashers Wheat for keeping us informed and enlightened.

With POTR playing in Austraila next easter, it would awesome for Neil to tag along for some side shows;)

Epic, epic time to be a NY & POTR fan!
Who could have ever imagined the tour we just witnessed?
Thanks Thrasher for documenting the whole gig and for hosting a correspondingly epic site where folks can congregate.
Its truly a daily highlight to visit TW!!
I'm going to try to reach out separately to send an unsolicited but well deserved contribution.

I've said before and I'll say it again: Play Europe!

I've got an idea for an excellent tour next summmer. It would be an all day/night affair with everyone doing nice, long sets. Working title "Excellent Songs With Guitar". Here's my proposed lineup.:
1. Neil with POTR
2. Wilco
3. Drive-By Truckers
4. My Morning Jacket

What do you think? :)
