Neil Young closes Isle Of Wight Festival by covering The Beatles

He plays an epic set in front of thousands of ecstatic fans

Neil Young closed the Isle Of Wight Festival tonight (June 14), playing to a massive crowd of adoring fans.

Coming onstage at 9pm (BST) sharp, the legendary songwriter kicked straight into 'From Hank To Hendrix', performing with just his acoustic guitar and harmonica.

Switching between acoustic and electric guitar, Young played a blistering version of 'Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)' early in the set, extending the song for roughly 10 minutes and sending the crowd wild.

Young was in jokey mood throughout, saying he hoped to "cop a buzz" after his performance and teasingly labelling the audience "alcoholics" before playing 'Mansion On The Hill' from 1990's 'Ragged Glory'.

Treating the crowd to a stint of full-band songs, Young played tracks including 'Cinnamon Girl' and 'Fuckin' Up'.

An epic version of 'Rockin' In The Free World' was just one of the highlights, with Young playing a total of four extended outros for the song (the crowd only too willing to sing along each time). At one point, Young even instructed the entire audience to wave their hands from side to side in unison with him.

At the song's end, Young and his band left the stage to mass applause, returning a short while later and kicking into 'Down By The River'.

He followed the track with his final song, the now customary cover of The Beatles' 'A Day In The Life'. Slowing the song down, Young's version of the track was a hit with the crowd, who sang along throughout.

Young ended the performance in a blaze of feedback, breaking his guitar strings and shaking his instrument violently and smiling to himself as he did so.

Neil Young played:

'From Hank To Hendrix'
'Mother Earth (Natural Anthem)'
'Comes A Time'
'Heart Of Gold'
'Old Man'
'Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)'
'Mansion On The Hill'
'Cinnamon Girl'
'Fuckin' Up'
'Rockin' In The Free World'
'Down By The River'
'A Day In The Life'

I'd love the Blu-Rays but it's 230 Euros. :-\

Got back from the Isle of Wight yesterday.
Fantastic!
Saw Neil Young, honestly never really heard him before and expected an old man with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica sat on a stool being boring and country for 2 hours.  How wrong was I?!?!?!
Young was AMAZING.  I'm currently listening to him right now, and have already now got decade, harvest and a smaller best of. Considering how even the best performance can sometime be a bit dull if you've never heard any of the songs before this show was spectacular.  And to finish with one of my favourite Beatles songs too!!!!

I'm a convert.



He was second only to the prodigy as my favourite act of the weekend.

I recommend the above mentioned Neil Young & Crazy Horse "Ragged Glory" album if you wanna hear him do the electric guitar/feedback rock thing! This album is nothing short of a masterpiece!! PLAY IT LOUD!  8)
Just around the corner and miles away...

The Weld Live CD (with Crazy Horse) captured the Ragged Glory tour and is pretty much that what you get when
you see Neil live at his best.
