Neil Young’s Coastal Tour 2023 has been a long-awaited event for fans, marking his return to the stage after four years since his last tour. This time around, the iconic musician has surprised audiences by incorporating songs from his collaboration with Pearl Jam on the album “Mirror Ball,” released back in 1995.
One of the standout moments of the tour is the revival of “I’m The Ocean,” a song that hadn’t been played live since 1997, adding a sense of nostalgia and excitement to the performances. Additionally, “Song X,” last heard in 1995, and “Throw Your Hatred Down” have also made appearances, bringing back cherished memories for longtime Neil Young enthusiasts.
As reported by Pearl Jam Online – Neil Young’s enthusiasm for working with Pearl Jam remains undiminished. On his site NY Archives, he expressed a desire to collaborate with the band once again, either in the studio or on tour. Reports suggest that Pearl Jam is currently recording in Seattle, sparking rumors of a potential reunion that fans can’t help but eagerly anticipate.
Adding to the excitement surrounding Neil Young and Pearl Jam’s partnership, a long-awaited documentary about their joint concert at RDS Simmonscourt Pavilion in Dublin on August 26th, 1995, might finally be on the horizon. The show, which was part of the 1995 Mirror Ball Tour, has been kept under wraps for over two decades due to the request of record companies representing the artists involved. While initially slated for release in 2018, it was unfortunately postponed, leaving fans eagerly awaiting an update on its eventual publication.
As if that weren’t enough to keep fans buzzing, there’s talk of a possible Mirror Ball vinyl reissue as part of the Neil Young Official Releases series. This vinyl reissue would be a dream come true for collectors and music enthusiasts alike, offering a chance to relive the magic of this iconic collaboration.
