Neil Young Live Debuts New Songs at 2019 Solo Tour Kickoff

Last night legendary musician Neil Young took stage for his first gig in 2019, and he came loaded with surprises. His solo tour is a continuation of week-long regional tours he's been putting on since last year. The first night kicked off at the historic Riverside Theater in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and his setlist was equipped with an array of tour debuts, and live debuts of two, new, original songs.
The setlist was epic, to say the least. He started the night Crazy Horse's "Mansion on the Hill" followed by the euphonious "Heart of Gold." He performed other formidable tracks from his catalog such as "Like a Hurricane," "Cortez the Killer," "Harvest Moon," "One of These Days," "Cowgirl in the Sand," "Ohio," "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere," and "My My, Hey Hey."
"My My Hey Hey" Live 1/23/19
The first live debut came six songs in after, "Green is Blue." The next one, "Olden Days," came later in the set. There's no recorded version of either song out there yet, but Uncle Neil obviously hasn't abandoned writing new music, so 2019 might be the year the 73-Year-Old releases a brand new album of original recordings. *heart eyes*
The crowd was over ecstatic crowd and made plenty of noise to show their love for Young, but perhaps a little too much noise at some points, as he exclaimed "You're screwing up my tuning, making all that noise."
Check out the 19 song setlist below:

Young will perform four more intimate shows in Madison, and three nights in Minneapolis. If you plan on attending, remember to show all the respect in the world to Uncle Neil as he blesses you with tunes made for heaven itself. I'll be over here meditating on a west coast tour.
Side note: He will also perform with Bob Dylan in London's Hyde Park this summer. See all the dates below!
