Roskilde Festival, Denmark Concert: Neil Young + Promise of the Real - July 1, 2016

"Alabama" - Neil Young + Promise of the Real - (Live @ Roskilde Festival, July 1st, 2016)

From Gigwise:
Neil Young + Promise of the Real gave a triumphant performance at Roskilde day three last night. Opening with a solo acoustic set that included the classics ‘After The Gold Rush, ‘Heart Of Gold’, and ‘The Needle And The Damage Done’, Young then spent the next two and a half hours blasting through a set accented by politically and environmentally conscious songs with his full electric band, who were the most spectacular guitar band of the festival so far.

Neil Young + Promise of the Real will be performing tonight, July 1 at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark.

A Live stream @ - 9PM Central European time, 3PM Eastern Time, noon Pacific! (Thanks Mark and Anette. Enjoy the concert and be sure to send us a report!!!!)

Hey Folks - sorry we messed up on this, as there was some streaming from Roskilde, but I realized that I hadn't confirmed that Neil would be on there. And then, when we got there, I looked at a Roskilde Festival newspaper and it had a list of some bands that would be streamed and Neil wasn't on there. Additionally, I didn't write down the exact setlist as it happened, partially as I figured someone else would have it, but see that Tom doesn't have it up yet nor anyone else that I've seen. I can pretty much confirm all the songs, unless I am missing one or two. The exact order is certainly not a certainly, especially in some sections, but this is the songs I remember (these were DEFINITELY all played!!) and the approximate order:

After The Goldrush
Heart of Gold
Needle and the Damage Done
Mother Earth
Out on the Weekend
Human Highway
Unknown Legend
Love to Burn
Country Home
Western Hero
Vampire Blues
Mansion On The Hill
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
Seed Justice
Rockin In the Free World

Love and Only Love

Incidentally, I haven't heard anyone comment on Neil eating or spitting during the show, which I've never seen before. At one point, he pulled out something that looked like a bowl and he was eating from it and spitting something out and it looked like he was throwing nuts at Micah, tying to get them in his mouth and finally succeeded to cheers. Have you seen or heard of that before or have any reports to clarify what's going on there?:) It was a fantastic show! I did time it and it was, if I remember correctly, 2 hours and 54 minutes from the start of the first song until the end of the encore.

Love from Sweden and Denmark,
Mark and Anette

Thanks Mark and Anette for report! No worries on the stream. Not surprised since that's how Neil rolls.

btw, sounds like Neil with his bowl of cherries. He's been known to toss a few into crowd. Sometimes the whole bowl which provokes a bit of a scramble in the pit for pits.
