Neil Young and Promise of The Real concluded a brief trip through Germany with concerts in Mannheim on Friday and Munich on Saturday. The band dug deep into Neil’s back catalog for a number of rarities that were sprinkled into the setlists.

All of the tour debuts played on Friday at Mannheim’s SAP Arena came in the middle of the set. Thirteen songs into a performance that started with “Mansion On The Hill” and included a solo “The Needle & The Damage Done,” Young & POTR unearthed “Prisoners Of Rock ‘N’ Roll” for the first time since Crazy Horse backed Neil on the tune on March 15, 2013. Next up was the tour debut of “Harvest Moon,” the tour’s second “Human Highway,” the return of the full-band “Long May You Run” that was last played on October 23, 2016 and the 2019 POTR debut of “Are You Ready For The Country?” A pairing of “Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)” and “Rockin’ In The Free World” closed out the set ahead of a “Fuckin’ Up” encore.

The biggest surprise on Saturday at Olympiahalle in Munich was the first version of Sleeps With Angels track “Change Your Mind” by any project involving Neil since July 20, 2016. Young & POTR also treated fans to the 2019 debut of oldie “I’ve Been Waiting For You” and the tour debut of “Milky Way,” an original Neil unveiled in May. Additionally, the band played the tour’s second takes on “Throw Your Hatred Down,” “Cortez The Killer,” “Like A Hurricane” and “Harvest Moon” on Saturday.
