Bob Dylan + Neil Young Duet Live For First Time In 25 Years: Watch
It was quite the rare sight on Sunday night to see Neil Young and Bob Dylan take the stage together as their co-headlining Never Ending Tour wrapped up at Nowlan Park in Kilkenny, Ireland.
To mark the occasion, the Hall of Famers performed the folk and rock song “Will The Circle Be Unbroken,” a traditional hymn with origins dating back to the early 1900s. It’s reportedly just the second time they’ve played this piece together since 1975, when they joined forces at the SNACK Benefit at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco. Watch a clip of the rare duet here.
The performance also marked the first time the two legends have played together in a quarter century, the last time being in 1994 at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. Both artists have been major figures in popular music culture for multiple decades. Much of Dylan’s most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin'” became anthems for the Civil Rights Movement and anti-war movement.
