Easily surpasses anything from the previous night (Dylan & the Stones). The whole stage was decorated with large teepee's, smoke signals, and giant tarps, creating a very earthly and organic vibe, and you throw in the famous Indio/Polo Fields sunset, and you have pretty much magic. And we haven't even started on the music/set itself. Three songs in, he plays exactly what I came to hear, "Old Man", and everything after that ("Harvest Moon", "Powderfinger") was just icing on the cake as far as I was concerned. Easily one of the best shows I have ever seen, period.

I must warn you though, I was unfortunately stuck next to a LOUD screamer (a gal and her husband, who decided that about 30 mins before Neil came on, she would squeeze herself right onto the rail next to us - which really pissed me off considering we had been there camped out since the gates had opened at 2pm, baking under the sun). So I already felt she didn't deserve that spot, and then to scream "WOOOOOOOOO" before and after EVERY song became very annoying very quick (if it was the man Ric Flair himself, I probably would have let it slide, but this gal? Sorry, no way...). I'm all for people enjoying the show their own way, but this was just too much (though maybe I'm just saying that because I had mics attached to my ears?). I finally had to do something I had never done in all my years of Coachella and other festivals taping, I had to tell her she had to stop prior to McCartney coming on, but I'll save that story for his set/recording.
