    Hi Neil,
    Could you please reproduce the ‘all-over print' t-shirt from the Mirror Ball tour? Spotted Nils wearing one in the Colorado film, I bought one at the Dublin gig in ’95 and it was my favourite NY shirt for years until it fell apart. What a gig Dublin was, stoked for the film finally getting a showing in NYA hopefully soon.
    Love to you and DH.

    That's fantastic news! 

    It's such a powerful and album that I can even remember specific times listening to it, like in the fall of 1997- at a time when I was really down and out and I was living on about $600 a month.  I was out in the El Dorado National forest, about 20 or 30 minutes east of here, scrounging end cuts where other had been cutting wood, loading up branches to shove in my old van- gathering pretty much anything out there I could burn in the wood burning stove in the cabin I was staying in- an old building that had no insulation- and hoping I wasn't going to freeze my butt off too badly during the coming winter.  I had the cassette tape of Mirror Ball playing the whole time I was out there scrounging wood .  "I'm the Ocean" lifting me up, "Peace and Love" giving me hope, all of it helping get me through that tough time.  It's one of those albums that just burns itself into your psyche.

    sounds like the Californian version of into the wild, brian.

    would love for them to tie a reissue with the live show. Maybe get the band and neil to do a song on Colbert or something. 


    Oh man!  Now we're talking!
    fuck that, 15 night stand at red rocks. one show per person. no merch. just poster preorder. one per person. same poster for the entire run. 

    a few neil songs to start each show, full album show in the middle, with merkinball w/ed as the encore.

    i did. that's huge, but it doesn't necessarily mean it's Neil Jam. could just be neil and a backing band. especially with pj's tour postponed to 2021, i can't see any of them having any time to tour with neil, unless it's like the totd "tour".

    Stranger things have happened than PJ saying fuck it we are putting everything on hold to play with Neil. One can dream

    It just means "[product from the] mirrorball tour coming in 2021"

    As in Dublin 1995 show is "mirror ball tour" in Neils mind. That is what coming from and is covering that specific tour.

    Because the person with the question saw him on that tour, and asked about that tour.

    come on now. lol

    Gotta agree with this (although you never really know for sure with Neil!)
    Neil has already announced the Mirror Ball Live record and film, and the remastered studio album, so that's probably what he's referring to. Plus he's repeatedly said he won't be making any touring plans until he's 100% sure the crowd will be safe.

    At this point, I would much rather see/hear Neil Jam than Pearl Jam.
    I SAW PEARL JAM

    I listened to it once or twice when it arrived, enjoyed the music for the most part, but I have no desire to listen to it again.

    But everything points to them playing Love Boat Captain between Sirens and Daughter.

    i didn't like it at all upon first few listens. give it another go. it grew on me. and now i love it. that didn't happen with lightning bolt or backspacer, both of which I now like for the most part, but will never love.

    Let me dream I was 13 the first time around and of course couldn’t even dream of flying to Europe to see one of those shows.  I taped downtown repeatedly on both sides of a 90 minute cassette and drove my entire family mad.  To me that is the best album Neil or PJ ever made I never get tired of it.

    How much is a yearly subscription? And anyone know if you can gift one?

    I think 20$ is what I paid.  It’s really cheap for what you get especially if you are a big Neil fan
