Neil plans “Honor the Treaties” benefit concerts, & London in summer

neil_young_glasto09_ge_12Neil Young announced Monday that he will perform four benefit concerts in his native Canada to raise funds for a legal defense fund supporting the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation in “challenges against oil companies and government that are obstructing their traditional lands and rights,” according to a press release, and published in USA Today.

The “Honor the Treaties” shows — a title referring to the last and largest of 19th century land agreements between First Nation and the government of Canada, guaranteeing protection of the ACFN’s lands, rights and ecosystems — will be staged in January. Young will be joined by fellow Canadian artist Diana Krall as special guest.

The concerts will take place Jan. 12 in Toronto, Jan. 16 in Winnipeg, Jan. 17 in Regina and Jan. 19 in Calgary. Tickets go on sale Tuesday.

Uncut review: Neil & CH at London

Uncut writes a long and nice review of the London show where RED SUN was played:

Neil Young & Crazy Horse: London O2 Arena, June 17, 2013

by John Mulvey

If, at this late date, you still need proof Neil Young is not a man to be trusted, something akin to that arrives about two and a quarter hours into his show at London’s O2 Arena.

By this point, Young has managed a grand total of 15 songs, mostly in the resilient company of Crazy Horse, and is making his first extended address to the crowd. “Frankly, a lot of times tonight we kinda sucked,” he says. “But, with what we do, that happens.”

One can understand the second part of Young’s statement: controlling such wild and capricious electric music is a necessarily tricky business. But what, bewilderingly, constitutes a non-sucking show for Neil Young? It is hard to recall, from my limited experience, one of his shows that has been simultaneously so ominous, joyful, ambitious and – a real shock, this, considering the unsteady reputation of Crazy Horse – tight. Perhaps a good night for Young resembles the prickly evening he spent in Newcastle last week, enjoying a faintly adversarial relationship with some sections of the crowd? Or the reception accorded “Walk Like A Giant” on Saturday, when substantial portions of the Dublin audience reportedly fed their boos into the song’s cacophonous end section?

London, Red Sun,

“No other band of their stature would take this risk”

~Andy Gill, The Independent

LondonNeil Young & Crazy Horse pull “Red Sun” out of their repertoire of songs to wow a London crowd Monday night.

London’s The Independent writer Andy Gill writes in a concert review that: ‘Neil Young may be his own harshest critic. ‘At times tonight, frankly, we sucked,’ he says at the end of another marathon show with Crazy Horse, his on-off backing band for over four decades. ‘But with what we do, that’s always a possibility.'”

Sometimes, he aptly states, they go beyond the point of no return.

“On ‘Walk Like A Giant’, a song about counter-culture values that closes his last album Psychedelic Pill, the almost subterranean fuzz distortion Young wrings from his Les Paul is the musical equivalent of tectonic plates shifting.”
