We're just two days from the start of this year's Bonnaroo and we wanted to take this opportunity to look back at one of
the best sets to ever take place on The Farm in Manchester, TN. In 2003, Neil Young & Crazy
Horse headlined the Friday festivities and treated fans to a mesmerizing
set of 12 classics.
Neil and his longtime backing band set off on the Greendale Tour just about a week
prior to their Bonnaroo visit. Over the course of the 43-show tour, the legendary rockers
started each gig with a complete performance of the Greendale rock opera, with just
a few exceptions. Young decided against using the bulk of his Bonnaroo set for
Greendale and instead laid down exemplary versions of 12 fan-favorites from his
back catalog. Highlights included the 20-minute "Love To Burn" opener, a raucous "Cortez
The Killer" and a jam-fueled "Down By The River."
We suggest clearing out 140 minutes of your day to watch one of the best sets in Bonnaroo
