Neil Young 2008-02-12 Stadsschouwburg Antwerpen (BE)

Artist:  Neil Young w./ Rick Rosas, Ben Keith, Ralph Molina, Anthony Crawford & Pegi Young

Venue: Stadsschouwburg
City: Antwerpen (BE)
Date: 2008-02-12

It was this evening Neil at his best, I think the acoustic set didn't start as good as the previous evening, but the song selection changed everything!
Neil was talkative inbetween songs and in a good mood.


included in the acoustic set are:

Try: first performance ever in Europe
This song was introduced during the American Continental tour after someone in Portland called for a song, Neil replied something and an other person in the audience said in a response "Try it". On which Neil replied: "That's a good one, and asked someone aside of the stage to write it down" Obviously Neil only heard Try (instead of Try it) A couple of shows later the song which was only known by it's title was introduced in the set.

Cowgirl In The Sand:
As far as I know this song was only played in Europe in the UK: both in 1973 during the Tonight's The Night Tour and in 1976 at the Hammersmth Odeon.
( The song I have been waiting for to hear live for more than 26 years.)


Final song of the evening:

The Sultan:
First performance ever in Europe, the song was played only a limited number of times during the US Continental tour.

Rockin'In The Free world: A song often played live since 1989, but was not played during the US Continental tour.
