Incredible show! Here's the all too brief set list:
Babel "thang": ("I have some information for you ...deep in the heart of you ...deep in the heart of man ...deep in the heart of each other ....you're so beautiful ...such a bitch! ...who am I?? ...I am nothing blessed ...I am nothing less ...deep in the heart of man ...hello everybody ...I am with you ...joy ...sorrow ...frustration ....humiliation ...so I awoke ...I woke ...I woke up ...from my dreamin...") This continued for about 10 minutes, accompanied by with Verlaine's guitar and j.d.'s drums, and turned into a completely strange and wonderful version of:Lights on! (Damn, they were just getting hot!) The set was about 40-45 minutes. Verlaine was awesome and Patti was on! The Neil Young audience were on their feet and really having a blast.
People Have the Power
Rock N Roll Nigger
About a Boy
Not Fade Away
At the end of "Gone Again" Patti told the photographers "...get outta my face! I got no patience tonight for photographers! I got little time here." She added, "We join you in your excitement, because we have a date with Neil Young and Crazy Horse."
The band's soundcheck was "Dancing Barefoot" and "Rock N Roll Nigger." "Dancing
Barefoot" is very Doors-sounding these days, as is "Gone Again" and
"About a Boy." Wonderful! Wonderful!
