Famed rocker Neil Young has played hundreds of towns and cities all over the world since starting his illustrious career in the ’60s, but last night marked his first performance in the beautiful mountain town of Telluride, Colorado. Neil Young and Promise Of The Real treated fans to a 21-song performance as part of their first of two consecutive shows at Town Park in Telluride on Friday.
While Neil and POTR spent the summer in Europe deep diving into Young’s repertoire and coming out with a new bust at what seemed like every show, the group went a different direction in Telluride. Young’s performance with Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson, Corey McCormick, Anthony Logerfo and Tato Melgar featured four songs thought to be completely new originals.
The debuts started soon after Promise Of The Real took the stage following a series of solo performances from Neil. Fan site Sugar Mountain gives the tentative titles for the new song as “Hang Gliders,” “Texas Rangers,” “Peace Trail” and “Show Me.” Young and POTR also worked in plenty of classics such as “Don’t Be Denied,” “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” and “Human Highway” within the 19-song main set. The encore featured both “Fuckin’ Up” and “Cinnamon Girl.” On Saturday, Neil Young and his latest band return to Town Park for the second and final show of the two-night stand.
