eturn to Greendale is the next installment in Neil Young's Performance Series (No. 16)and features a concert from the historic and unique 2003 tour supporting the release of theNeil Young with Crazy Horse album Greendale. "We took it all around North America in 2003, set up that massive set over 80 times," Young explained.
On the tour, Neil Young and Crazy Horse were joined on stage by a large cast of singers and actors to perform the story Young wrote about the small town of Greendale and how a dramatic event affects the people living there. The songs are among the most personal he's ever penned, ranging from the dark and biting to the light and humorous. The ten songs from the powerful original album are performed in sequence, with the cast speaking the sung words - adding to the intensity of the performance.
