VIDEO: Neil Young Returns to Past Glory at Carnegie Hall

Posted on January 7, 2014 | by Amber von Nagel

On January 6 at Carnegie Hall, Neil Young performed a two hour and 20-minute set full of classics from his golden period (1966–1978). Above is a video taken by an audience member of his final song of the night, "Long May You Run." You can even hear the audience singing along with him quietly, participating in the performance, but not overpowering the performer.

This performance is his first of a four-night run at Carnegie Hall. Starting on January 12, he will also play four benefit shows in Canada for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defense Fund.

The set list for the January 6 show is as follows:
