Neil Young played “If I Could Have Her Tonight” for the first time since 1968 on Friday, June 10.
Young, who is currently on tour with Promise of the Real, performed the song at the First Direct Arena in Leeds – scroll down to watch footage.
He played the song again the following night at London’s 02 Arena.
The song is from Young’s eponymous solo debut.
Previously, Young had only performed the song once, at the Canterbury House, in Ann Arbor, Michigan on November 9, 1968. That version appeared on the 2008 album, Sugar Mountain – Live at Canterbury House 1968, which was part of Young’s live Archive Performance Series.
