Neil Young began his six-night residency at London’s Hammersmith Apollo last night (March 5), his first London show in five years.

Playing a similar set to that of the first UK date at Edinburgh’s Playhouse the night before, the singer was in pure entertaining form throughout the acoustic and electric sets that formed the show.

Minimal differences in the set list between the Edinburgh and London show, though the Apollo’s audience was treated ‘No One Seems To Know’, ‘Journey Through The Past’ and ‘Cowgirl In The Sand’ during Young’s acoustic set plus a short but electric ‘Like A Hurricane’ as the show-stopping encore.
