Neil Young’s 2019 European tour, with Promise Of The Real as his backing band, is featured in an upcoming concert movie and accompanying album called ‘Noise & Flowers’.

The film and album feature performances from various shows on the nine city tour, and include the songs ‘Helpless’, ‘Rockin In The Free World’, ‘Winterlong’, ‘Alabama’ and ‘I’ve Been Waiting For You’, plus the rarely performed ‘On The Beach’.

The tour followed the death of Young’s long-time manager Elliot Roberts, something the musician noted when writing about the film and album on his blog last week.

“Promise Of The Real and I had a tour planned of Europe”, he recalled. “[Wife Darryl Hannah] and I were in the bus, on our way to New York to catch a plane to Europe when we got the call. After returning to the funeral for our beloved Elliot, we got on a plane and left for the tour”.

“During the tour, we had a poster of Elliot on a road case, right where he always stood during all shows”, he added. “Everyone who was with us felt that this tour was amazing for its great vibe. The Real and I delivered for Elliot”.

One track from the release, a performance of ‘From Hank To Hendrix’, is already online:
