You may remember back in early 2010 when Neil Young was named MusiCares Person of the Year. There was a tribute concert, pretty much every awesome guest they could nab packed the building, and any rock ‘n’ roll lived on. While the high ticket price may have kept you away, you’re in luck now, some 14-15 months later. On May 31st, Shout! Factory will release A MusiCares Tribute to Neil Young on DVD and Blu-ray.
According to JamBase, the release will feature top names across a dozen genres performing the songs of Young. Although it doesnt include the complete concert, theres still much to love here. From the country genre, youve got Lady Antebellum, John Fogerty, and Keith Urban. Smooth jazz and soul is represented by Norah Jones. Alternative folk has Ben Harper and Wilco. Even opera is covered with the irresistible charm of Josh Groban.
If you want to watch before you buy, MTVs HD channel Palladia will be airing the concert during Memorial Day weekend.
