During headline set at Roskilde Festival, Denmark…


Neil Young proved that he’s still got it last night in Denmark, as he headlined the main stage at Roskilde Festival.

Tens of thousands of festival punters gathered to hear the aging rock legend perform a set that included classic tracks such as ‘The Needle and the Damage Done’ and ‘Cinnamon Girl’.

There was also a surprise rendition of Bob Dylan’s ‘All Along The Watchtower’.  Young closed the set with a cover of The Beatles ‘A Day In The Life’, paying homage to other musicians of his generation.

Young, now 62, looked relaxed as he took to the stage, and seemed to be enjoying the opportunity to play to a European crowd.  His performance proved that he is still at the top of his game.

The Chemical Brothers succeeded him on the main stage later that night, keeping the Danish crowd dancing until the small hours.
