Neil Young and Promise Of The Real kicked off their Rebel Content tour last night [July 5, 2015] at Marcus Amphitheatre, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The show was part of Milwaukee’s annual Summerfest event.
A full review of the show appears on the website for Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which reports that two people dressed as farmers tossed seeds onto the stage and watered sunflowers before Young opened the show at the piano with “After The Gold Rush“.
He played the first five song solo – including “Heart Of Gold“, “Old Man” and “Mother Earth (Natural Anthem)” – before he was joined by Promise Of The Real.
The 28-song set drew heavily from Young’s latest album, The Monsanto Years, as well as Harvest and Harvest Moon.
He also performed Ragged Glory track, “White Line”, live for only the sixth time; he had previously played it during a club gig in Charley’s Restaurant And Saloon, Paia, Maui, Hawaii, in May.
Other rare cuts included the first performance of “Don’t Be Denied” for 12 years and Greendale’s “Double E” both for the encore.
The next stop on Young’s tour will be at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, Colorado on July 8 and 9.
