Young plays rarities at private show in Paris

Neil in Paris

 

 

 

 

Mystery surrounds the private show Neil Young and Promise of the Real performed in Paris the evening of Jan. 25, 2016.

According to UNCUT the event at Theatre Mogador  was hosted by Carmignac, who describe themselves as “one of the leading asset managers in Europe” on their Twitter feed. And apparently billionaire Eduardo Carmignac joined Neil & musicians on stage.

Among the surprises in Young’s set the After the Goldrush track “Til the Morning Comes” made its live debut, 46 years after the album’s release.

Another cut from the same album, “Cripple Creek Ferry,” was played for the fourth time only, and the first time since 1997.

The set also included Edith Piaf’s “La Vie En Rose.”

Three blissed-out hours of Neil Young on day one of WayHome

Way Home FestivalBetter late than never, this Admin was on vacation in beautiful Oregon.

Carla Gillis of the online magazine Now reports on her experience at the Way Home Festival, a three-day music blitz held July 22, 23 and 24 at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds, Oro-Medonte, Ontario.

Gillis described the scene as tens of thousands of people spread out across the massive grounds.

Here is her review of Young’s performance, accompanied by Promise of the Real:

“We got three hours of him, backed by the flawless Promise of the Real, and every moment was glorious, even all those heavy-handed songs about Monsanto and Starbucks and GMOs and pesticides from his new Monsanto Years album. In a T-shirt that said ‘Earth,’ Young smartly waited for close to an hour before bringing them in, first serving up the perfect soundtrack to an outdoors concert under a half moon: heart-tugging renditions of Helpless, Winterlong, Out On The Weekend, Cowgirl In The Sand.

“And when the eco-crusade began, Young’s passion was so apparent, so genuine, that it made you think about how although his motivation for writing music may have shifted away from rustic love balladry over the last couple of decades, he’s always going to give us honest, stark and impassioned tunes about his current obsessions. And making the world a better place couldn’t be a more admirable one.

“Humour laced the set – ‘Your organic cherries are absolutely perfect'” he said, before throwing a bunch to the massive crowd – and his guitar solos were louder, wilder, more frequent and ferocious than I’ve ever witnessed, especially the epic roaring one that came at the set’s end, long after A New Day For Love, Down By The River, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Rockin’ In The Free World. Pure magic.

“Young’s encore – Don’t Be Denied, Fuckin’ Up – ushered in midnight, just as Kaytranada’s bass-heavy hip-hop-disco-R&B-inspired beats started infiltrating the night. ‘Thank you, Ontario!’ Young shouted.”

On Wednesday night, July 22 Neil Young took his Rebel Content Tour to Mansfield, Mass., where he played at the Xfinity Center with Micah and Lukas Nelson from Promise of the Neil.

His last show on this tour will be tonight, Thursday, July 24 at the Wayhome Festival in Oro-Medonte, Canada.
A review of they concert by Stephen Peterson of the Sun Chronicle says Legendary singer-songwriter-guitarist Neil Young just keeps plugging away as he approaches his seventh decade, and remains as spirited as ever.He writes that several of the new album’s songs were part of the set in the 2 1/2-hour show, which may have disappointed fans wanting to hear more of the folk rocker’s popular tunes. But there were several rarer vintage songs featured, too.

“Taking yet another jab at corporate America, Young called the concert venue Great Woods twice. ‘No corporation can buy your history,’ the ever-rebellious Young told the crowd.

“The feisty Canadian native kept up his social commentary with two longer songs also off the latest album, “People Want to Hear About Love” and “Big Box.”

Norah Jones’ alternative country group, Puss n Boots, a trio whose members all sing, opened.

Jones, 36, is best known for “Don’t Know Why” off her five-time Grammy winning 2002 debut album, but the song list centered on her group’s 2014 debut album, “No Fools, No Fun,” including “Twilight,” “Don’t Know What It Means,” the snappy “Always” and “GTO.”

Jones Beach, concert review, set list, video

Reviews for the Jones Beach show of Neil Young and Promise of the Real on Tuesday, July 21 have been hard to find, but here is one from The Brooklyn Vegan’s Blog.

Fellow Monsanto hater Reverend Billy and Norah Jones‘ country band Puss N Boots opened.
Andrew Sacher writes that last night’s set was filled with favorites.
He writes: “What were highlights was seeing Neil come out by himself at the start of the night to play ‘After the Gold Rush,’ ‘Heart of Gold,’ ‘Long May You Run’  ‘Old Man’ and ‘Mother Earth (Natural Anthem)’ consecutively on either piano, acoustic guitar, or organ. It wasn’t until after those five that the band even came out, and it wasn’t until even later that Neil picked up an electric guitar for the first time.
“Promise of the Real obviously aren’t Crazy Horse or anything, but they did a great job backing him. They brought a lot of energy to the show, and they basically played all the songs the way they sound on record. When they locked into the extended jams on ‘Down by the River’ and ‘Love and Only Love,’ they were on fire.
“Another treat was he gave us a good amount off one of his best ‘latter day’ albums, Harvest Moon, including the title track, ‘From Hank to Hendrix’ and  ‘Unknown Legend.’ Plus he sprinkled in even more from his most classic era, including ‘Out on the Weekend,’ ‘Words (Between The Lines of Age)’ and ‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.’ Really an incredible show.”
