The first Neil Young and Crazy Horse tour in eight years continued last night at Key Arena in Seattle after a two-week layoff. This month-long third leg of the Alchemy Tour will bring the band coast-to-coast with the next eight shows scheduled for Canada. Following the Trans-Continental, Vancouver to Ottawa portion of the jaunt, Young and his longtime backing band will head to the Northeast for performances in Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, Fairfax, Brooklyn and Bridgeport.
Last night in Seattle, the group stuck to a similar script as the first two legs with a focus on songs from their new Psychedelic Pill LP and a smattering of “hits.” As you can see from the grid above (click for full size), thanks to the fine folks at Sugar Mountain, the setlists have been very similar from show to show. The variation usually comes in the encore slot where Tonight’s The Night got the call at yesterday’s show for only the fourth time this tour.
Set: Love and Only Love, Powderfinger, Born In Ontario, Walk Like A Giant, Needle and the Damage Done, Twisted Road, Singer Without A Song, Ramada Inn, Cinnamon Girl, Fuckin’ Up, Mr. Soul, Hey Hey My My (Into The Black)
Encore: Tonight’s The Night

Thanks to Billy Harrell, we can watch most of last night’s Neil Young and Crazy Horse show as he’s shared a batch of the best fan-shot videos we’ve seen so far of the band in action. The eight clips feature all the classic Neil tunes and none of the new songs, hope you don’t mind.
