And now he's added Stringman to the setlist! Read the review here!


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”.
