LIVESTREAM RE-BROADCAST: Neil Young + Promise of the Real Concert @ Nowlan Park, Kilkenny, Ireland

Per Neil Young Archives (NYA): Times-Contrarian, Neil Young + Promise of The Real live stream concert this past weekend in Kilkenny, Ireland will be re-broadcast "this week for 24 hours".

Neil Young | NYA Live Stream

From a comment on LIVESTREAM TODAY ON NYA: Neil Young + Promise of the Real - Nowlan Park, Kilkenny, Ireland - 14 July 2019 by Scotsman:
...The last time Neil did a live stream with POTR, I didn't comment: mainly because I thought it was total crap and switched off half way through.

Well, I'm singing a different tune tonight. I loved tonight's live stream from start to finish. That's the honest truth.

Unfortunately I missed attending Hyde Park this year for personal reasons. And when you are losing (or have just lost) someone close to you, someone special, every second suddenly seems more precious.

Of course, our loved ones stay with us in spirit. But that's not to deny or downplay the great sense of loss we all feel. Every breath feels ever more valuable. Every action is more alive, every feeling more intense. I know that. I'm feeling it too, among my own circle.

And that's what Neil is feeling on this tour, I guarantee you that. He's played his heart out. He really has. His band have performed impeccably. They've more assuredly committed to a different direction this tour: they've fundamentally shifted from "more is more" to "less is more". Quality over quantity. It's an approach they touched on in 2016, but have really gone to town with this time around. They've realised that their considerable strengths are actually subtlety, feeling and nuance. The result is a band and band leader who are all now pulling in the same direction.

I loved the camaraderie, the setlist, I adored Neil's ferocious guitar tone and the urgency of his playing. The beautiful big bloodbath climax to Cortez, the cutting guitars solos of Throw Your Hatred Down. The Nelson brothers were as close to perfect as I've heard them, sparse, soulful and powerful. Doing justice to the songs.

Most of these songs were purpose-built for Crazy Horse, of course. A very special band. I'd personally love Sampedro to come out of retirement for one more go around. I wouldn't be at all surprised if that happens. Band members come out of retirement with the same freqency as mafia Dons. And I hope Poncho reads this and considers it. But in the meantime, I'll just say these other guys are doing okay.

In short, I thought the show was bloody brilliant.

Thanks so much Scotsman. And again our sympathies that you were unable to make the concert but glad to hear you were able to enjoy the strea,

Likewise, the live stream went smoothly here at TW HQ on both PC and Android platforms.

Did anyone manage to capture the stream when it originally went out? or are we holding out hope that it might be re-broadcast? I'm an archive subscriber who was at Kilkenny and I'd dearly like to see it again.
