Neil Young & Crazy Horse Kick Off First Tour Since 2004

On Friday night, Neil Young & Crazy Horse kicked off their first tour in almost a decade at Albuquerque, NM’s The Pavilion. With the exception of a single-song performance of The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There” in February, this was Young’s first performance with Crazy Horse since the Greendale tour ended in 2004.

Crazy Horse’s current incarnation—the band’s third iteration—features Young, guitarist/keyboardist Frank Sampedro, bassist Billy Talbot and drummer Ralph Molina. The band charged through a 15-song set of Young classics, including several jammed out numbers. The group also debuted seven new songs: “Born in Ontario,” “Walk Like A Giant,” “Twisted Road,” “For The Love Of Man,” “Ramada Inn,” “Psychedelic Pill” and “Jesus Chariot.” Only one of those songs, “Jesus Chariot,” appears on Americana, the new album of reworked children’s songs and traditional numbers Crazy Horse released in June. (“Jesus Chariot” is a rearrangement of “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain”). The rest of the songs may appear on the second Crazy Horse album Young promises in the coming months.

Then, last night Young and Crazy Horse opened a two-night run at Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks. The group offered almost the exact same set, but dropped “Jesus Chariot” from their setlist and encored with “Over and Over.”

Young and Crazy Horse will return to Red Rocks this evening.
