Neil Young made his return to the stage for the first time this year for his annual benefit concert, Farm Aid. The iconic rocker will turn 72 years young this November and from the footage Farm Aid shared of his performance, still has the guitar chops and pipes to hit the road.
Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers.
Neil did an eight-song set at Farm Aid and tucked in his epic masterpiece, “Cortez the Killer” in the second spot of the set. Joining Neil was Promise of the Real with Lukas Nelson, son of Willie Nelson. Lukas was recently jamming with his dad out on tour.

Hopefully 2018 will bring a tour. Until then, we have this great footage of Young killing it at Farm Aid.
