History of Rock and Roll
Neil Young Series
We attend live music concerts to feel and experience the music, an experience that a recorded version can not compare to. We anticipate that moment when the music takes over all our senses. It's too much but we want more. You want to close your eyes but don't want to miss a moment on stage. Neil Young and Promise of the Real, Rebel Content tour brought just that. Lukas and Micah Nelson played at the show in Santa Barbara while Willie Watched from back stage. They teased us as if the show was over, Santa Barbara Bowl has a strict 10pm curfew. They returned to play until 10:30pm. The performance met our greatest expectations. Every moment was better then the next as if we won the lottery of extra time. We left the show breathless exhausted but wanting more. When I think of the best most memorible music experience I always come back to that night at the Santa Barbara Bowl.
