Neil Young is currently on a solo tour of the US, playing varied sets drawing from all periods of his career. At Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre last night (July 1) he surprised fans by taking to the piano to play “One More Sign”, a song dating from the Buffalo Springfield era that has only ever been released as a demo.
Other highlights of his two Chicago shows included “After The Gold Rush” on pump organ, “The Needle And The Damage Done” and “Ohio”.
“The crowd was the real hero,” wrote Young on Neil Young Archives. “I was happy to join them.”
