Neil Young Plays Four Acoustic Shows In L.A.

Neil Young played four solo shows over five nights at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, offering up a career spanning show.

The majority of the sets each night were set with just one song in the first set and two songs in the second changing, depending on the night, along with a fluid encore.

One real rarity was the ‘Rust Never Sleeps’ song ‘Thrasher’. Young performed the song for the first time in 39 years at this week’s show.

Harvest was the main entry from Young’s catalog with four of the songs from the set being played all four nights and a fifth on the first evening. There was also a generous number of covers, all coming from Young’s upcoming set A Letter Home.
