Reviews from last year’s Live Rust Album tour
‘To witness last night’s concert was to see a group of musicians at the very height of their combined musical excellence, putting on an unforgettable show that paid fitting tribute to an artist who helped invent and shape modern rock, folk, and country – it was a concert that many in attendance will never forget, and one that will reignite their passion for an unforgettable musical icon.”
“To hit that high point with 12 songs yet to be played is a feat within itself, but to elicit that same level of awe and appreciation from an entire theatre of die-hard fans for the remainder of the set was simply breathtaking – it was a collective performance that demanded adjectives yet-to-be invented within the English language. “
13th Floor review
“In a way, it shows how the music of the great rockers could live on when (God forbid) the originals are no longer with us: A great Neil Young concert, without Neil Young. Rock & roll can never die, mate.”
