An Evening with Neil Young, the recently reported one-night-only film event featuring screenings of the legendary rocker’s rarely seen 1982 movie Human Highway and his classic 1978 concert flick Rust Never Sleeps, takes place tonight in select theaters across the U.S. In between the movies, a live Q&A session will be held with Neil Young and some other Human Highway cast members, including Devo‘s Gerald Casale, that famed director Cameron Crowe will moderate.
Human Highway is a quirky comedy co-written and co-directed by Young, who portrays a bumbling auto mechanic who works next to a nuclear power plant and who’s unaware that the world is about to end. In addition to Casale, the film also features the rest of Devo, as well as Dennis Hopper, Russ Tamblyn, Dean Stockwell and Sally Kirkland. Young composed the music for the movie along with Devo.
Rust Never Sleeps documents an October 1978 concert Young played with his backing band Crazy Horse at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. It features both acoustic and electric sets, and includes performances of most of the songs from Neil’s 1979 album of the same name, as well as such memorable tunes as “Sugar Mountain,” “Comes a Time,” “After the Gold Rush,” “The Needle and the Damage Done,” “Cinnamon Girl” and “Like a Hurricane.”
An Evening with Neil Young will run approximately three and a half hours and will be shown in more than 300 theaters throughout the U.S. To find out more information, including screening times and locations, and to purchase tickets, visit FathomEvents.com.
