"Hey Hey, My My. Rock and roll can never die." Neil Young's immortal words cut through the new noise of punk to become an anthem of defiance and renewal. His 1979 album Live Rust captures the best of his Rust Never Sleeps tour, documenting an artist at the peak of his powers.
The rock icon's prophesy will echo loud and true as a super group of New Zealand's finest musicians recreate the mother lode of Live Rust hits, track by track — with an opening set of classics spanning Buffalo Springfield to Crazy Horse.
Bridging solo acoustic jewels and explosive electrical storm, Live Rust sold platinum in the USA, but only in New Zealand did it reach #1, spending a staggering 50 weeks in the charts.
From Comes a Time, After the Gold Rush and The Needle and the Damage Done to the thunderous exhilaration of Like A Hurricane, Cinnamon Girl and Cortez the Killer, this is the best of Neil Young performed by some of our most passionate and accomplished artists and musicians.
