Flashback | Neil Young & Crazy Horse At Bonnaroo 2003

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 history:

Set: Love To Burn / Sedan Delivery / Powderfinger / Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black) / Cortez The Killer / F*!#in' Up / Like A Hurricane // Be The Rain / Cinnamon Girl / Rockin' In The Free World / Roll Another Number / Down By The River
