Review of March 19 Wellington Show

Australian tour end  Mar 21 – Vector Arena, Auckland.

Blog on the Tracks: “Neil is a Touchstone.” 

Simon Sweetman review of the Mar 19, 2013 – TSB Bank Arena, Wellington, Australia.

The writer/music reviewer says he cried watching Neil and Crazy Horse on the Australian Alchemy Tour:

Sweetman Writes:

“I’m super-grateful to have made it to the show. Twenty-three years ago I fell for the sound of Neil Young & Crazy Horse. I fell hard. There’s no picking yourself up and just dusting off, forgetting about it, after that happens. Hearing Neil Young with Crazy Horse was like hearing Hendrix, this Flannelette Coltrane with his exploratory guitar solos, antecedent for the grunge that was about to hook me in, a hark back to the heavy metal and punk sounds that were swirling in my head also at that time.

Neil Young is a touchstone, he gets called up all the time, the broken-arsed country/folk tunes and the Crazy Horse material; he’s the guy reviewers go to when they need a name that carries kudos, a handy comparison.”

    Fantastic review Simon, beautifully written. Ramada Inn, for me was a highlight, the perfect story , both musically and lyrically. Led Zep in Auckland in ’72 is my fav show ever followed by Brian Wilson’s Smile a few years ago. But as I settled into the nearly 3 hours of magic I thought,’into equal second best marches Neil and his herd of wild horses.’ And I’ve seen a few.
