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:

Neil Young held an onstage family reunion Friday night during his concert in Rome as Willie Nelsonjoined the rocker and Promise of the Real, which features Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah.
It’s family time here tonight, we’re gonna have the whole family come out,” Young told the crowd as he introduced Willie Nelson. “What do you say, pop?” Nelson soon strapped on a guitar and joined Young and his sons on Old Ways‘ “Are There Any More Real Cowboys?,” a track Nelson and Young have played together in the past. Nelson stuck around for one more song, leading his classic “On the Road Again” alongside Young and Promise of the Real.
Nelson’s appearance onstage wasn’t a complete surprise as, earlier in the day, Lukas Nelson revealed on Instagram that Willie sat in with the band during rehearsals at the Temre Di Caracalla venue. Following Friday’s concert, Lukas Nelson wrote, “Dad joined us tonight in Rome. To be able to support my two heroes together on stage with my brothers is a joy that is indescribable.”
