Event: Neil Young’s Live Rust now Jan 2021

Due to continuing uncertainty around Covid-19 levels, the promoter of the three-part concert series COME TOGETHER, today announces that the first tour, NEIL YOUNG’S LIVE RUST, is being rescheduled to January.

New dates for LIVE RUST are: Christchurch, 14 January; Wellington, 15 January; and Auckland, 16 January. 

The good news is that Liam Finn will now be available to join this epic line-up of artists, recreating the magic that bought critical acclaim last year when he teamed up with Jon Toogood, Samuel Flynn Scott, SJD, Delaney Davidson, Dianne Swann and Brett Adams to perform this iconic album, live on stage. The concert series will be under the direction of New Zealand’s acclaimed music producer Jol Mulholland.


“Jol’s one of the most talented guys I know – he’s got talent exuding from every pore.”– Neil Finn


Performed in its entirety with a bonus set of New York classics spanning Buffalo Springfield to Crazy Horse, this full-scale production will transport New Zealand audiences to a Neil Young rock gig they’ve only ever dreamed about.

Bridging solo acoustic jewels and explosive electrical storm, Live Rust sold platinum in the USA, but only in New Zealand did it reach #1, spending a staggering 50 weeks in the charts.

New Zealand, it’s time to rock out!


Reviews from last year’s Live Rust Album tour
‘To witness last night’s concert was to see a group of musicians at the very height of their combined musical excellence, putting on an unforgettable show that paid fitting tribute to an artist who helped invent and shape modern rock, folk, and country – it was a concert that many in attendance will never forget, and one that will reignite their passion for an unforgettable musical icon.”

“To hit that high point with 12 songs yet to be played is a feat within itself, but to elicit that same level of awe and appreciation from an entire theatre of die-hard fans for the remainder of the set was simply breathtaking – it was a collective performance that demanded adjectives yet-to-be invented within the English language. “
13th Floor review 

“In a way, it shows how the music of the great rockers could live on when (God forbid) the originals are no longer with us: A great Neil Young concert, without Neil Young.  Rock & roll can never die, mate.”
