Willie Nelson sits in with Neil Young and Promie of the Real, in Italy

July 19th, 2016


by:  Scott Bernstein

At Neil Young & Promise Of The Real’s first show of 2016 back in April, the band was joined by the legendaryWillie Nelson in Texas. Last night in Rome, Willie came out towards the middle of the show to sit-in with Neil & POTR, which features his sons Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson, on two songs at Terme di Caracalla.

Willie Nelson emerged 11 songs into the set to lend a hand on “Are There Any More Real Cowboys” and then led the group through the Neil & POTR debut of The Red Headed Stranger’s “On The Road Again.” Both of Willie’s guest spots came after his son Lukas fronted the ensemble on another version of the Italian classic “Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu,” aka “Volare.” There were plenty of other highlights in Rome including the year’s second “Mr. Soul,” the rare “Vampire Blues” and a jammed-out “Rockin’ In The Free World.” But the show will also be remembered for Young finally dusting off one of his most beloved songs with Promise Of The Real.

Last night’s encore in Rome was “Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black).” While Neil Young has played the Rust Never Sleeps rocker over 500 times in his career, Friday marked the first time he teamed with Promise Of The Real on the song. It also was Neil’s first performance of “Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)” in any form since his Summer 2013 Tour with Crazy Horse. The tour continues tonight in Lucca, Italy.

Watch fan-shot footage of “Are There Any More Real Cowboys?” and “On The Road Again” from Rome:

Here’s the Neil & POTR live debut of “Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)”:
