A bit of music history was made last night at Nowlan Park in Kilkenny as Bob Dylan and Neil Young made their first stage appearance together in 25 years.
The two music legends were co-headlining a show, and at the end they took the stage together to perform the first song they ever sang together, during a 1975 San Francisco concert.
With Dylan on piano and Young on guitar, they played "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?", a Christian hymn that became a standard of the folk-rock genre in the '60s and '70s.
The last time they had performed together was in 1994 at New York's old Roseland Ballroom.
They had co-headlined a concert at London's Hyde Park on July 12 but did not play any songs together.
Needless to say, fans at the Kilkenny concert were delighted and thankfully captured the moment on video.
Bob Dylan recorded the song early in his career, but Rolling Stone reported that he has not played it live since 1976, meanwhile Young has performed it in concerts four times between 1995 and 2018.
Young shared a clip of the performance on his Instagram while breaking the news to fans that it will not be included in the re-broadcast of the concert.
