Neil Young's Incredible Tour Hits Manchester

Neil Young's Incredible Tour Hits Manchester

Neil Young's remarkable string of UK dates continued last night, as he played the first of two nights at Manchester Apollo.

As we've come to expect over the past week, much of the setlist remained the same. But besides second outings for "Winterlong" and "The Needle And The Damage Done", there were a couple of conspicuous new additions.

In the acoustic set, the Manchester audience was treated to “Stringman”, originally written in 1976, but unreleased until it appeared on "Unplugged" in the early ‘90s, and "Helpless", from Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's "Deja Vu".

Inside the new Uncut...


On the morning of July 29, 1966 Bob Dylan became distracted while out riding his Triumph motorbike. Writing about the incident later in Chronicles Volume 1, Dylan rather gnomically recalled, “I had been in a motorcycle accident and I’d been hurt, but I recovered.” Of course,...
