Neil Young & Promise of the Real continue tour in 2016

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015


Neil Young & Promise Of The Real finds the legendary rocker joined by a backing band featuring Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real. The group embarked on two legs of the Rebel Content Tour in 2015 and it appears they will hit the road once again next year.

German fan site Rusted Moon found ticketing links showing Neil Young & Promise Of The Real will play two shows in Germany next summer as part of the band’s debut European Tour. The first of the two performances will take place at Völkerschlachtdenkmal in Leipzig on July 20, while the second is set for Berlin’s Waldbühne on July 21. As for now, the two German performances are the only confirmed 2016 shows for Neil Young & Promise Of The Real but look for additional announcements soon.

Young seemed revitalized by his time on the road with Lukas and the members of Promise Of The Real. Neil dug deep into his back catalog and seemingly busted out a gem for the first time in years at nearly every show of the tour. “Alabama,” “Vampire Blues,” “L.A.” and “Walk On” were just a few of the songs that returned to the fold in 2015 after decades on the shelf. Beyond that, Promise Of The Real brought a fiery spirit that helped reinvigorate Neil in concert and the pairing led to a bevy of extended “Cortez The Killers,” “Down By The Rivers” and “Cowgirl In The Sands” that blew past the 15-minute mark. Here’s hoping 2016 will bring more of the same with multiple legs of the Rebel Content Tour once again.

“Just Breathe”

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I’m a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they’ve got noneStay with me…
Let’s just breathe…

Practiced are my sins, never gonna let me win, uh-huh
Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh
I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world to make me bleed

Stay with me
You’re all I see…

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

As I come clean…
I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, uh-huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, oh no

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave…

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
And I come clean, ah…

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me ’til I die
Meet you on the other side…

New Lily Meola album! “They Say” (featuring Willie Nelson and Lukas Nelson)

Saturday, December 19th, 2015


Lily Meola has a new album out, “They Say” and it’ s no surprise that the Willie Nelson family’s fingerprints are all over it.  They are big fans and supporters of Lily and her talents.  Everyone who hears Lily Meola sing falls in love with her voice, including Annie Nelson who heard Lily sing on Maui, where both families live.   Lukas and Micah Nelson went to school with Lily’s brother, Matt Meola (also talented, not a singer but a pro surfer).  Annie  introduced Willie to Lily and her music at one of her local performances in Maui and the Nelson family have become cheerleaders for Lily and her music.

Willie and Lukas sing with Lily on her new album and Willie contributes some guitar gems on two other songs.  Micah Nelson has producer creds on the album and Annie Nelson supports the project too, but behind the scenes and out of the limelight.   And Kris Kristofferson duets with her on “Me and Bobby McGee.”   Jamey Johnson  invites Lily on stage to sing with him when they are sharing a festival anywhere.  Yeah, that’s the kind of recognition and acknowledgement she gets from other artists.

Thousands of us were first introduced to Lily Meola at Farm Aid in 2013, when Farm Aid President Willie Nelson invited the 18-year-old singer from Maui to perform with him.  They sang “Will You Remember Me”, and the video is below.  Her voice is so beautiful, timeless like the best of the best female vocalists from the 40’s and 50’s and ’60’s, every decade.   Willie also asked Lily to sing with him on his 2013 album, “To All The Girls.” And he can pretty much get anyone he wants to sing with him.  (Even Barbra Streisand — but where is that cut, Barbra?)

If you live on Maui, you can run over and get your copy (and one for a loved one) today at Nuage Bleu Collections Maui,Designing Wahine Emporium Hale Zen Alice In Hulaland Driftwood Maui Letarte Swimwear Biasa Rose Request Music WaterLily Maui Hi-Tech Surf Sports

For those of us who don’t live on a tropical island, rather are here in frozen Colorado like me, we can get it on the world wide web from Lily’s website:

And Lily’s a really nice person, too, and her mom is great, too.  This is the kind of gift you want to give, the music you want so support — artists like Lily Meola.   This is where you want to spend your music money.  Buy her cd; you’ll thank me later.

Love and peace and good will from the Willie Nelson family
