Alchemy Setlist Shakeup: Neil Young Dusts Off Human Highway In France

At last week’s Neil Young & Crazy Horse show in Biarritz, France on July 18, Neil surprised the crowd during the acoustic portion of the show, with the rarely played “Human Highway” from the Comes A Time album.

While there haven’t been many setlist shakeups on the European leg of the Alchemy tour, this would have to qualify as a fairly major one. According to a report on the Noise 11 website (which also posted the video we are re-posting here, just below):

“Young has only performed the song live 13 times in the past 30 years plus another three times with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, twice in 2003 and once in 1989.”

Neil Young FAQ is the first definitive guide to the music of this mercurial and methodical, enduring, and infuriating icon. From the Archives to Zuma and from the Ditch Trilogy to the Geffen years, this book covers every song and album in painstaking detail-including bootlegs and such lost recordings as HomegrownChrome DreamsToast, and Meadow Dusk.

Obscure facts and anecdotes from the studio to the road, along with dozens of rare images, make this book a must-have for Young fans.
