Neil Young & Crazy Horse kicked off the European leg of their Alchemy tour last night (June 2).

The band played in Waldbühne, Berlin, an outdoor arena with a capacity of 22,000.

According to reports, the stage sets that the band had used on the previous legs of the tour were absent.

The set included three songs from their latest album Psychedelic Pill alongside "Hole In The Sky", a new song that had been premiered on the Australia/New Zealand tour leg of the Alchemy tour earlier this year.

Young also played an acoustic cover of "Blowin' In The Wind", which he had played previously on the 1991 Weld tour with Crazy Horse, but hadn't been played live since 2001's Bridge School Benefit concert.
