I find that very very sad.They are doing their best.

Must be a lot of Neil Young fans out there.
Who presumably will have wanted to be preached to,not entertained,by the replacement act.

If you call this entertainment.

Ugh that is hideous... shudders

Well you will be relieved to know that according to recent setlists,the chances of him performing that song are zero.

Well I hate to disappoint anyone but at least 3 of the last 5 show's he has played in Australia he did that song
I love that song and why he wrote it.

It's all good though isnt it?

Perhaps not if you're a Friday, single day ticket holder.
They only have a 7 day window to swap days or request a refund.
There appears to be some confusion as to whether or not that window has commenced.


I know several people in that number, and when I last heard from a couple of them, they were still waiting for a definitive answer RE the above.

And they are definitely not happy.

Regards, did your friends end up getting a definitive answer?

I am not sure as I have been busy with other family matters and my friend who was trying to sort this stuff on behalf of his group for many days and got no response, has now gone overseas on business.

All I know is that I got a promo email from BluesFest early in the week, which I glanced at, which mentioned some stuff in passing.

I hope that all proper and legitimate concerns have been met?

I'm pro bluesfest and anti Neill - he ain't welcome no more with regards to me and my kin folk. If he's fit enough to hand out awards to grunge guys he's fit enough to play the worlds best blues and roots festival instead of causing punters and organisers headaches with his lack of respect! Time we wiped his name from these boards

I vote that Admin hire MPember to monitor the forum and eliminate all joke posters both existing and as they create new identities.

I think mccain was referring to the lyrics to this song, starting about 50 seconds in.

This was posted on Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's Facebook page this morning:

"Due to illness, Neil Young is regrettably no longer able to induct Pearl Jam at this Year's Induction Ceremony. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is thrilled that David Letterman has agreed to induct the band this Friday night at the 32nd Annual Induction Ceremony. We're wishing Neil a speedy recovery."

Could explain why he cancelled Bluesfest. Hope he's ok.

Anxious

Get well Neil!

The other greatest (next to Dylan) living singer songwriter

Very sad, hope he's ok :(

I have to say Friday headliners are pretty dull without Neil, nothing as exciting was ever added.

Pearl Jam have reformed eh... Crazy grungers what a weird phase in rock that whole grunge thing was! What a funny voice that guy had, reminds me of silverchairs

Hipster muso's with a devil may care attitude. Poor old letterman is scraping around for gigs since being sacked a few yrs ago from his tired novelty show.

I know you're being a stupid stirrer but I'll reply anyway.

Pearl Jam never broke up and they haven't been "grunge" for a long time. They've been together 26 years and are still going strong and touring. Vedder's voice is one of the best and I would love him to bring his solo show to Bluesfest one year.. I got to see him as a solo artist here in 2011 and 2014 and it was wonderful.

Agree with you about Letterman though... have never liked him.

Maybe Neil is sick. Maybe he just doesn't want to hear another damn Pearl Jam song.

Can't agree with both of you about Letterman. The man is a genius of the highest order.
I feel that Pearl Jam will be embarrassingly starstruck.

When they go low-we go high.

He's actually one of their greatest fans and vice versa. Anyway I didn't post what I did so I could read idiotic comments about Pearl Jam. I just thought people would like to know about Neil Young being ill and perhaps it also explains the cancellation of Bluesfest.
