I saw Neil Young & Crazy Horse at the WFCU Centre in Windsor Ontario on October 3rd… it was my 22nd time seeing him and the first time on Canadian soil, there was a great introduction, “Oh Canada” was played with the Canadian flag as a backdrop… a video of that is here…

The printed setlist that someone obtained from the stage… (Cinnamon Girl was not played, but Cortez was added)…

The setlist as played…

1. Love And Only Love
2. Powderfinger
3. Born In Ontario
4. Walk Like A Giant
5. The Needle And The Damage Done
6. Twisted Road
7. Ramada Inn
8. F*!#in’ Up
9. Psychedelic Pill
10. Cortez The Killer
11. Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)
12. Tonight’s The Night

Fuckin’ Up VIDEO…

Point of interest… Poncho was without a guitar when Neil started the song, he was standing there swinging the guitar cord around trying to get Neil’s attention while the tech is running to get a guitar for Poncho! That minor fuck-up resulted in a spine-tingling extended intro jam/drone!

Cortez The Killer VIDEO…

According to someone who is astute to Neil details, “a rare version of Cortez with Neil on Gold Top and Poncho playing a Gibson ES 335″… mmm, I noticed Poncho’s guitar tech when the song started standing to his side holding a guitar to give him, wondered about that.

At the concert I met Denis from France, on a Neil Young newsgroup site I follow he had inquired about the Detroit area and border crossing info, I helped him out and we decided to meet at the show… he has eight more shows he’s going to attend on this tour before returning to France!… Lucky.

Denis’ review of the show is HERE. (google TRANSLATED)

I sat next to a Mr. Palcit and his wife, a lovely older couple from Amherstburg Ontario, their son bought them the tickets as a gift, they had seen Neil many times before and are big fans… I did some namedropping and mentioned relation we have in that area, Morrison, Smeltzer and Thrasher… they live two doors down from one of the Thrashers… small world!

My brother and I sat in the first row on the side “stage right”, it was where people would come  and go from backstage and view the show from the side… saw Neil’s manager Eliot Roberts, his brother Bob Young and his friend /associate Dave Toms. Dave Toms saw someone he knew if the general admission area in front of the stage, he went out and watched the first three songs from that area.

The Neil Young & Crazy Horse Windsor concert was one of those shows that you just want to keep going over and over in your mind… what an awesome experience!
