Lyric mixup in I’m The Ocean (?), a great Homefires, Burned seemed to break down in energy and a wrong note. At least one start of a song that Neil ended for a redo. My Heart sounded good, Love Earth was nice, 4 strong Winds was nice. Vampire Blues! Debut? Overall it was the most problematic Neil show I have seen. He normally always nails it, But Jell, Neil is 77 years old or so. I am glad he is willing to tour the Left Coast. I am going to try to hit one more time & get a better listen. Your Brother Alan

I had no real expectations for Chris Pierce but enjoyed his set immensely. One cover and well crafted originals. A natural for train songs as hes also a gifted harmonica player. He's so honest tells a touching story of him at like 7. Very gracious i ran into him on his way to signing. We exchanged a few words and a hand skake. A very respectful crowd especially for being 8k. I was a lil worried going in. I sold the seat next to me for quite allot,,$183.00. they never showed. The seat to my left was open after 2 songs. Its was tight think a airline middle seat so i was very happy. The crowd waz adoring all night. His voice againg like fine Napa Cabernet. Funny too. Maybe my favorite liklline was Dont take anything up here for granted lol. They went knuts for the familiars . But even the lesser knowns were appreciated. Tight on the weed. But ive never seen more alcohol counters all serving the same brands. For a fleeting secord when they gave him Old Black I thought maybe my Hey Hey My My prediction might realize but then just as quik was rewarded w Vampire Blues 💙. Nice. He talked about David Briggs and Sleeps with Angels. Briggs impact is still felt. Love Earth was good . For such a big crowd the participation was lets call it lacking. I was trying to rally the crowd and he was well ive heard allot better. Each time more joined in. The louder it gets the more fun.. he said don't try to be perfect lol. He reminded me of Pete Seeger. Ol Pete wanted the crowd to join in but sometimes its like pulling teeth. 4 Strong Winds Was sublime. Bonus Comes a Time. Some ppl left shakin thier heads early thats ok. You do what you can and don't worry about the rest. A lovely night in Bend. I even walked from my Chateau 6 in a short 30 mins. He was happy all night. He kept askin how I was doing and I kept replyin various whoops and shrieks. Ohio was a nice sing along. There was a few thousand who know the words. Heart of Gold was sort of like friggin finally animation of the mass.

Thanks Brother Alan & wsanjose! good to hear reports from some of TW's most intrepid commenters. helps to keep it all REAL. that comment about Pete Seegar rings true. There are some parallels here...

I was a bit critical I my review of the show. I must also say that I could not hear perfectly, bobbing in the river on a kayak with my sweetheart. Logistics, kayaking, and my own ADD make enjoying a live show in this way a bit different. The locals and others on the river listening to Neil’s show numbered around 250-350 people. And it was a party, let me tell you. 15 people on one big mass of rafts and tubes, G strings (not the guitar string)… many were talking during the show, but we could hear fairly well. Truth is, you don’t even need a kayak. You can listen for free from a bridge or across the Deschutes river. But I had a plan and it worked well enough. I could not help but feel that a misfire happened in the first song with the flubbed lyrics of I’m The Ocean. For me, that song was the #1 for me, so to have a wheel in the ditch was a let down. But it was great to hear Neil play a set. I will report from my next upcoming show and tell a very different story, I think. Your Brother Alan in Bend

I CANNOT GO TO THE SHOW TONIGHT IN RIDGEFIELD AND HAVE TWO TICKETS TO SELL THEY ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE BUT ARE FOR SALE AT FACE VALUE ON TICKETMASTER WHERE THEY CAN BE RESOLD. THESE ARE ARCHIVES PRE SALE TICKETS AND ARE VERY GOOD SEATS... SECTION 103 ROW U SEATS 22 AND 23 I HOPE SOMEONE CAN GO WITH THESE

Not sure of the veracity of this report given that Neil's been pretty adamant about playing outdoor venues only for the time being. Would certainly be a hell of place to see him. Assuming Nils is no longer touring with Bruce by then. https://www.brooklynvegan.com/neil-young-playing-roxy-theatre-50-years-after-headlining-its-opening-night

****I found out a way tom lower the price and am doing so, with fees, fee value is 212.00, I am lowering it to $175.00 I CANNOT GO TO THE SHOW TONIGHT IN RIDGEFIELD AND HAVE TWO TICKETS TO SELL THEY ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE BUT ARE FOR SALE ON TICKETMASTER WHERE THEY CAN BE RESOLD.

sorry Alan if the are only comments to your post..., I cant get on the main posting form.., if anyone knows how to post on the normal posting form here..please feel freee to post this for me.., I am only trying to not let these tickets go to waste, somehow the show has not sold out and so, that seems to be why I cant resell them even at reduced price.. ****I am trying to lower the price on ticket master, but they are having tech problems..and am doing so, they also only allow it to be lowered to a non fee price of $180.., I would try to offer a better price.., but the system will not let you I CANNOT GO TO THE SHOW TONIGHT IN RIDGEFIELD AND HAVE TWO TICKETS TO SELL THEY ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE BUT ARE FOR SALE ON TICKETMASTER WHERE THEY CAN BE RESOLD.

Neil Young Coastal Tour

Neil Young Coastal Tour

Looking back at the blockbuster success of "Heart of Gold," the mellow country-rock tune that became his first number one single and only Billboard Top 40 hit in 1971, Neil Young remarked that the song "put me in the middle of the road. Traveling there soon became a bore so I headed for the ditch." Young wrote this passage for the liner notes of "Decade," a double-disc compilation that documented the first part of his career, ten years that took him from the pioneering Los Angeles rock and roll band Buffalo Springfield, through his emergence as a lone folk-rock troubadour and his alliance with Crosby, Stills & Nash, to his noisy, rambling wanderings with Crazy Horse.

Over the years, he would tap back into these different sounds and personas, but his avoidance of the middle of the road pushed him into eccentric territory his singer/songwriter peers would generally avoid. Young's willfulness could be as much a hindrance as an attribute -- famously, Geffen Records sued him for delivering albums that were "uncharacteristic" -- but his muse also led to a series of distinctive, indelible records whose legacy sometimes only revealed itself over time; eventually, the electro experiments of 1982's "Trans" were acknowledged as an artistic achievement, not a commercial disaster.

Many of Young's most enduring works arrived in the '70s, when he alternated between such bruised, beautiful introspection as 1970's "After the Gold Rush" and noisy guitar jams like 1969's "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere," taking detours for such after-hours decadence as 1975's "Tonight's the Night." Young would follow this rough blueprint for years, swaying between noisy rock and intimate folk. Occasionally, his muse led him directly into the cultural zeitgeist, as it did during the 1990s, when he was hailed the Godfather of Grunge and collaborated with Pearl Jam, and he always felt compelled to address social ills, whether it was through his 2006 Iraq War protest album "Living with War or The Monsanto Years," a record about the environment made with Promise of the Real in 2015. Young often returned to his home base of Crazy Horse -- they backed him on efforts like "Barn" (2020) and the Rick Rubin-produced "World Record" (2022) -- yet despite these constants in his career, he remained a vital, unpredictable presence for decades, challenging himself and his audience.

Neil Young Announces First Tour in Four Years

The "Costal Tour" takes place in July

Neil Young Announces First Tour in Four Years

Neil Young has announced his first tour in four years.

For now, the “Costal Tour,” as it’s called, sticks to the west coast. The outing begins with four nights a the 1,200-person capacity Ford Theatre in Los Angeles. He’ll then move on to larger venues, including the Santa Barbara Bowl, the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Berkeley, and the Hayden Homes Amphitheater in Bend, Oregon. According to a press release, more dates will be announced in the future.

The tour will pull from the more obscure reaches of Neil Young’s catalogue, highlighting songs he has yet to perform live over his six-decade career. The two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Famer prefaced the setlist choice to patrons of the Neil Young Archives , saying, “I don’t want to come back and do the same songs again. I’ll feel like I was on some sort of carnival ride. I’d rather be doing these others songs I haven’t done… I won’t have to compare how I’m doing ‘Heart of Gold’ to [how I played it in] 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010, 2020…”

Among the songs Young intends to play are “Song X” from Mirror Ball , the 1995 album made with Pearl Jam; the Trans  outtake “If You Got Love”; and “Prime Of Life” from 1994’s Sleeps With Angels . “They’re old songs. But I wake up with them in my head every morning,” Young explained. “They are songs that apply to my life right now, and apply to everyone’s lives in this era that we’re in. Some of them were written 10, 20, 30, 40 years ago, but never really played live.”

Despite his vocal suspicion that “touring is broken” due to Ticketmaster, seats to Neil Young’s 2023 tour will go up for grabs via Ticketmaster beginning Wednesday, July 14th at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Young broke his pandemic-related live hiatus in Feburary with a surprise acoustic set to Canadian protestors, followed by an on-stage reunion with Stephen Stills  in April and duet with Willie Nelson at the latter’s 90th birthday concert. He also released an album with Crazy Horse, All Roads Lead Home , in March.

Neil Young hits the road again with West Coast solo acoustic concert tour this summer

neil young tour 2023 bend oregon

Neil Young is hitting the road along the west coast this summer – and apparently breaking out some little-heard classics.

The limited run of solo shows along the west coast begins July 1 with four consecutive shows in Los Angeles, a press release revealed Friday. Other stops include San Diego, then dates in Oregon and Washington, before ending in Napa, California. Singer-songwriter Chris Pierce will be a special guest during the Coastal Tour.

These will be Young's first series of live performances since before the COVID-19 pandemic. He skipped Farm Aid 2022, but in April he did perform at the Light up the Blues event in Los Angeles , a benefit for Autism Speaks held by former bandmate Stephen Stills, and at Willie Nelson's 90th birthday concert .

Young voiced hesitation to return to live shows amid the pandemic to USA TODAY in December 2021, while speaking on the release of the album "Barn" from him and Crazy Horse: "There is no post-COVID right now. We've got a whole 'welcome back' thing," Young said, who added he had no touring plans at the time. "Give me a break. This is misinformation. It is totally wrong. We are not over this. We're not anywhere near over it."

Most of the songs Young plans to play – about 80% – will be songs he has recorded but not played live, he told fans during a Zoom call Thursday with Thrasher's Wheat , an unofficial Young fan and news site.

Tickets go on sale starting Wednesday, June 14 at 10 a.m. local time at Ticketmaster and other usual outlets. Members of the Neil Young Archives can attempt to get tickets during a presale period starting Monday, June 12.

Hayden Homes Amphitheater - Bend, OR

August 13, 2024

Featuring Mudvayne and All That Remains

Tickets for the 33-city nationwide tour on sale this Friday, April 26

Tuesday, April 23, 2024  — Megadeth is bringing its iconic live show to North America with a 33-city, nationwide tour, Destroy All Enemies, produced by Live Nation, this fall including stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boston, St. Louis and many more. Tickets for all dates will be on sale Friday, April 26 at 10 a.m. local time with an exclusive presale for the Cyber Army/Megadeth Digital beginning today, Tuesday, April 23 at 12 p.m. local time at  Megadeth.com .

The tour will make a Bend stop at Hayden Homes Amphitheater on August 13, 2024.

Bringing along Mudvayne and All That Remains, the tour begins in Rogers, Arkansas on August 2 and runs throughout the month before wrapping in Nashville, Tennessee on September 28. Performing classic hits from  Rust In Peace, Countdown to Extinction  and more, the tour also brings Dave Mustaine and bandmates back to North America to perform their latest studio album  The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!  Featuring some of Mustaine’s strongest-ever songwriting, the tour offers an equally ambitious live performance that delivers on all fronts.

"Our 'Crush The World' tour has been a tremendous experience for the four of us,” shared Dave Mustaine. “We are all playing tight, and that has made it possible for me to really focus on solos and singing, we are playing more songs than ever before, and we are closer to each other, onstage AND off. I'm excited to see Mudvayne, and All That Remains. Join us as we DESTROY ALL ENEMIES.”

The North American jaunt comes on the heels of a highly anticipated and successful stint in Latin America wrapping this month and starting back up in Europe this summer. With stops in Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and México and forthcoming dates in Sweden, Italy, France, Germany and more, the band’s global appeal and lasting impact is more apparent than ever as continued calls for international touring are demanded.

Megadeth, alongside founder and frontman Dave Mustaine, are renowned for their unparalleled energy and mastery on stage. In 2023, the GRAMMY-Award winning band dominated arenas and festivals, reaffirming its status as one of heavy metal's most formidable live acts. Dubbed “as ferocious and hard-hitting as ever” by  AllMusic , Megadeth enjoyed sold-out shows and critical acclaim on the latest run of the Crush The World Tour captivating audiences and showcasing the latest and greatest hits.

Neil Goldschmidt, Oregon former governor who sexually abused young girl, dies at 83

Neil Goldschmidt, the Oregon governor and Portland mayor credited with turning a frumpish city into a thriving metropolis only to see his record forever stained by revelations that he had sexually abused a young teen girl, died at home in Portland on Wednesday, according to his family.

His family was by his side, they said. The reported cause was heart failure. He was 83.

Goldschmidt’s high-energy leadership style thrust him into the upper circles of power, including a heady stint inside President Jimmy Carter’s administration. His crash into political purgatory, after he was exposed and confessed to statutory rape of a 14-year-old girl, left him largely shunned and unforgiven in the state he loved.

He spent his last years alternating between homes in Southwest Portland and the bucolic Provence region of France. Friends said he desperately wanted to reengage in public policy, but had resigned himself to a much more anonymous retirement.

The public shock over the revelation he was a child sexual abuser is best understood against the backdrop of his once-unparalleled influence in Oregon.

For a time, it seemed Goldschmidt commanded the center of Oregon’s political and business echelons. As a one-term Democratic governor, he oversaw Oregon’s comeback from a recession that ravaged the state’s timber industry but sowed the seeds of a high-tech makeover of the economy.

As President Jimmy Carter’s transportation secretary, he turned the nation’s attention to alternative transportation even as he steered a controversial bailout of Chrysler. As a Nike executive, he led the giant athletic company’s international operations. As a top-dollar lobbyist and consultant, he worked deals that reached from Portland’s Park Blocks to Weyerhaeuser’s boardroom.

It was during his six years as mayor, however, that a young, brash and ambitious Goldschmidt left his most lasting marks. He pushed for and won initiatives to turn what some called “Stumptown” into an ambitious, pedestrian friendly, transit-oriented model of smart growth and new urbanism.

In short, he laid the groundwork for the modern image of Portland as one of the nation’s most livable cities. But it was also during that time that he began sexually abusing an underage neighborhood girl — a secret he kept buried for nearly 30 years. Goldschmidt’s victim died in 2011.

Fred Leonhardt was Goldschmidt’s former speechwriter, a member of his inner circle and the author of the then-governor’s career-shaping state of the state address in which he called for “a guarantee to every child in every region of our state a greater chance for a decent life.”

But after Leonhardt learned the full details of Goldschmidt’s history of sexual abuse and statutory rape from former Multnomah County Sheriff Bernie Giusto, their bond was irreparably broken. Leonhardt said he took the story to The Oregonian in December 2003. The newspaper’s editors were slow to act on his tip, however, and it was Willamette Week’s Nigel Jaquiss who eventually broke the Pulitzer Prize-winning story.

Leonhardt said it was as though Goldschmidt had “deliberately” set out to destroy his young victim’s life.

Margie Boulé, then a columnist for The Oregonian, interviewed Goldschmidt’s victim over many months after the abuse became public. She said the abuse occurred for years, beginning when she was 13.

She struggled after the abuse, and Goldschmidt reached a financial settlement with her in secret.

Boulé wrote about her reaction to the 2004 stories about Goldschmidt’s fall from power: “The stories made her sound like a throwaway person, she said, a teen who’d been asking for trouble, an ex-con who might have had a hard life even if she hadn’t been abused as a child by the most powerful, charismatic man in Oregon.”

Longtime Goldschmidt confidant Gerry Frank, who died in 2022 , said: “In no way can we gloss over what he did. It was wrong. He knows it, everybody does. But Neil Goldschmidt is probably the smartest, most charismatic, most visionary guy that Oregon has produced in a long, long time.”

Yet, U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden said the best response to Goldschmidt’s death would be for people to contribute to organizations dedicated to preventing sexual abuse such as the Oregon Association for the Treatment and Prevention of Sexual Abuse.

“Neil Goldschmidt’s abuse of a young girl destroyed her life, a horrific act that should make any other discussion of his political career moot,” Wyden said in a statement.

So it goes with Goldschmidt. He will be remembered as someone once credibly thought of as presidential material, but whose official portrait was summarily removed from its place of honor in the state Capitol and exiled to a storage warehouse in Gresham.

“The point is, all around this state and certainly around this city, Neil Goldschmidt transformed things and made lives better,” said Mitzi Scott, a one-time campaign aide who later became close friends with the Goldschmidt family. “Does that cease to exist because he made a mistake? No, it doesn’t.”

His family members said in a statement that they hoped “those mourning his passing can remember the significant positive contributions he made to our community.”

“Neil was a force of personality and the patriarch of our large, blended family. Although he battled many health issues for years, he was actively engaged with family and friends in discussions about school, business, politics and wine until the day of his passing,” they said in the statement. “We will deeply miss his presence in our lives.”

Neil Edward Goldschmidt was born June 16, 1940, in Eugene, to parents Lester and Annette Goldschmidt. He cut his political teeth at the University of Oregon, where he was elected student body president and later recruited students to join the civil rights movement.

His was a close-knit family and would remain so throughout Goldschmidt’s political and personal ups and downs. Goldschmidt graduated from the UO with a political science degree in 1963, the height of the civil rights era in the United States. He spent a brief time in Washington D.C., as an intern for former U.S. Sen. Maurine Neuberger.

Things happened quickly for the young political up-and-comer. Two years after he got his degree, he married Margaret “Margie” Wood in Eugene. Two years later, the Goldschmidts headed for Berkeley, California, where he attended law school at the University of California. Then it was back to Oregon and up to Portland, where he took a job as a Legal Aid lawyer.

In 1969, fewer than three years after moving to Portland and the same year his son, Joshua, was born he ran for the Portland City Council. He won, becoming one of Portland’s youngest city commissioners.

His rise two years later to become the nation’s youngest big-city mayor sealed his reputation as a political virtuoso. Few in Oregon’s history rose so far so fast. Then he set about changing the city to fit the far more modern, hip and idealistic image he had for it.

The “downtown plan,” adopted the year before he became mayor, installed a transit mall that became the forerunner to the MAX lines that now crisscross the city. The Mount Hood Freeway, planned as a straight shot between wealthy West Hills neighborhoods and the ski slopes, was stopped, despite immense old-school political momentum. Harbor Drive, an expressway along the Willamette River’s west bank, was ripped up and replaced with the now iconic Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

A parking lot outside what was then the Meier and Frank department store transformed into Pioneer Courthouse Square. Nordstrom, lobbied heavily by the mayor, built one of its flagship stores across the street. The Portland Center for the Performing Arts opened in the historic Paramount Theater, another building saved from plans for a parking garage.

Goldschmidt’s rising political star perhaps flashed brightest when, in 1979, he resigned as mayor to take a position as President Carter’s transportation secretary. Staff members strew daisies in his path as he left City Hall on his last day.

When Carter suffered a landslide defeat in his bid for a second term, Goldschmidt seemed only too happy to move back to Oregon. His time in the national spotlight brought calls for him to run for Senate, and even some talk about a future presidential ticket. He wasn’t interested, said Tom Imeson, one of Goldschmidt’s closest associates.

“He didn’t like Washington,” Imeson said. “There was something about Oregon that was very genuine. Plus, he liked being in charge.” Back in his home state, Goldschmidt immediately went to work for Oregon’s most prestigious business, Nike, where he was vice president in charge of international sales from 1981 to 1985, then president of Nike Canada from 1985 to 1987.

All the while, Goldschmidt was being pressed to run for governor. Not that he needed it. His whole career seemed like a heat-seeking missile aimed at the Capitol in Salem.

As governor, Goldschmidt launched what he called the “Oregon Comeback” a series of initiatives aimed at bringing the state out of a prolonged recession. He focused on high-tech companies, enticing them with promises of tax breaks, an affordable work force and the state’s vaunted livability.

He headed off an inmate-overcrowding crisis by overseeing a construction boom of new prisons. He also introduced his Children’s Agenda, aimed at attacking drug abuse and child abuse while increasing educational opportunities for preschoolers through teenagers.

As his first term wound down, Goldschmidt began assembling a campaign staff for what many inside and out of the political community figured would be a cakewalk reelection. They were shocked on Feb. 7, 1990, when Goldschmidt announced he would not run for reelection.

“He called me from his car and said, ‘This campaign is headed into the ditch. I’m not running.’ And that was that,” Imeson says. Most attributed the decision to his deteriorating relationship with his wife, Margie, whom he divorced a few months later. Few knew the other, deeper cause that Goldschmidt hoped would stay hidden.

A private citizen once again, Goldschmidt launched a lucrative lobbying and international trade business. In 1994, he married Diana Snowden, a PacifiCorp executive, and the two bought into a Yamhill County winery that produced high-end pinot noir. As for politics, Goldschmidt preferred the inside game, which included behind-the-scenes advice to former Gov. Ted Kulongoski both during his first campaign and while he was in office.

Goldschmidt began attracting public and news media attention in 2001 when he landed a high-paying lobbying job for Saif, the state-run worker compensation program. The spotlight intensified three years later when Goldschmidt simultaneously worked a deal that could have landed him as chairman of Portland General Electric and agreed, at Kulongoski’s request, to take the helm of the state Board of Higher Education.

The latter would prove to be his downfall. Upset at the idea that someone who had abused an underage girl would take a top post overseeing universities, then-Sen. Vicki Walker, D-Eugene, tipped Willamette Week to a court document that laid out what had happened back in the 1970s when Goldschmidt was Portland mayor.

As the Portland weekly prepared to run a story that would later win it the Pulitzer Prize, Goldschmidt offered a partial confession to The Oregonian in May 2004. The ensuing onslaught of news stories and outraged public response effectively ended Goldschmidt’s private and public careers.

Overnight, he went from one of the state’s most powerful figures to its most vilified. He would never come close to recovering his former footing and lived the rest of his life in a kind of political and social purgatory.

The public’s fury with the former governor perhaps was best symbolized in March 2011, when custodians at the Capitol removed Goldschmidt’s official portrait which had once hung outside the state Senate from an out-of-the-way office and hauled it to a warehouse in Gresham for indefinite storage.

Some have wondered if there’s room to consider Goldschmidt’s accomplishments alongside the record of his abuse.

State Sen. Tim Knopp, R-Bend, who along with Walker requested the painting’s removal, said there is no room for forgiveness or redemption given what happened. Had his abuse been reported at the time, “there would be no public legacy for Neil Goldschmidt. He wouldn’t have been secretary of transportation, he wouldn’t have been governor of Oregon. His career would have ended rather abruptly.”

Goldschmidt’s survivors include his wife Diana, children Rebecca McMillan and Josh Goldschmidt; stepchildren Kirsten and Neilan Snowden; grandchildren Cambell and Delaney McMillan, Jaden Goldschmidt and Max; stepgrandchildren Jack Schroeder and Lucy, Lee and William Snowden; and brother Steve Goldschmidt.
