Watch Neil Young Perform Live For First Time In 4 Years At Old-Growth Forest Rally
Neil Young performed live for the first time in four years on Saturday afternoon at a rally for old-growth forests that took place in Victoria, British Columbia. As CTV News reports, Young did two songs, “Comes A Time” and “Heart Of Gold,” after being introduced by his wife Daryl Hannah. The event, which was called “United We Stand for Old Growth Forests! Declaration, March And Super-Rally,” was meant to protest the Canadian government’s failure to protect old forests from logging impacts.
Young has not performed publicly since before COVID was a thing. Last year, he talked about how he still didn’t feel safe playing concerts due to the pandemic, though he has plans for a way to tour sustainably — if he ever tours again. Last month, it was announced that Young would be part of the lineup of Willie Nelson’s 90th birthday celebration, which is set to take place in April.
