Neil as Jesus? Ok!

“Still brimming with his signature sense of spontaneity, of mercurial artistry alive in the moment, that makes Young such a hallowed figure to so many.”

Neil Young’s run at the Dolby continues with shows Sunday night, Monday and Tuesday. All are sold out.

Randy Lewis of the Los Angeles Times offers this review of the Dolby Show:

He writes: “It wasn’t a big leap to wonder during Saturday’s opening night of Neil Young’s four-night run of solo acoustic concerts in Hollywood whether Jesus, if he returned to address a modern-day audience, would have to contend with a steady stream of shouts from the back for ‘Sermon on the Mount!’ ‘Water into wine’ and ‘Free Bird!’

“Young fielded a similar barrage of requests (“Cinnamon Girl!” “Down By the River!”) and comments (“You’re the man!”) from the sold-out crowd at the Dolby Theatre good-naturedly.

“At one point he tacitly acknowledged the tone of almost spiritual pilgrimage in the air by shaking the water out of a harmonica onto folks sitting in the first few rows, a rock ’n’ roll priest anointing his flock. He even shifted into request mode himself after another outburst from fans, mock shouting “The Beatles!” “The Rolling Stoooooones!” “Free Bird!””

\"\'Crazy Mama\' by JJ Cale is a record I love. The song is true, simple, and direct, and the delivery is very natural.\" (The song was the closest thing Cale had to a hit single, peaking at No. 22 on the Billboard chart in 1971.) \"JJ’s guitar playing is a huge influence on me,\" Young continued. \"His touch is unspeakable. I am stunned by it.\"
