Arenas & Sheds Concerts Jiffy Lube Live

Neil Young @ Farm Aid 2016

What an incredible set this was. Neil mother-effing Young! Joined on stage by Willie Nelson! He sang “Harvest Moon” DURING THE HARVEST MOON! Wow. This set was easily worth the drive and hassle of heading out to Bristow. I had only seen Neil once before, way back in the mid-90’s with Crazy Horse, back when I wasn’t well-versed with his work. I will never forget the roar from the crowd that erupted when Neil strapped on his electric guitar after performing his first five songs acoustically. The crowd went absolutely bonkers and he rewarded them with killer versions of “Powder Finger” and “Rockin’ In The Free World.” It was so cool to be so close to Neil and watch him perform. He makes has this look of disgust on his face when he’s playing guitar that is really incredible. I’ve been shooting concerts for 10+ years and I’m as jaded as they come, but this and the Mellencamp set made for an incredible night.
