Chicago show – night one “restless energy”

Chicago TheaterReview of first Chicago show. Neil plays again tonight, Tuesday April 22. More reviews from Human Highway roving reporter to come.

Chicago Tribune review of the Monday, April 21 Neil Young solo acoustic show starts:

“His eyes shaded by a black fedora, Neil Young strapped on a guitar that  once belonged to Hank Williams Sr. and leaned in, as if ready to whisper in someone’s ear.

‘Come a little bit closer, hear what I have to say,’ he sang near the end of his sold-out concert Monday at the Chicago Theatre.”

The Best Concert Review Ever

An Evening With Neil YoungWOW. Thrasher’s Wheat had the honor of publishing the best Neil Young concert review ever by Bucks Burnett, who attended the April, 18, 2014 solo acoustic show at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas.

To read journalism like this is to be in the presence of greatness. WOW again.

Sit back and enjoy the read of your life.

It’s titled: “Why I’m Not Here Anymore.”

“Last night was not a concert. It was a congregation being blessed by snake oil from a traveling salesman. But this guy carries the real stuff because we are healed from our earthly concerns. This was a very rare example of paying $200 for a four million dollar show. He took us away and we are not coming back. I do not want to hear music today or talk to people today. Or be seen. I want to be alone with this vibration in my soul.”

Neil Young confronts heckler at Dallas show

shutupThis was posted at JamBase:

Neil Young played a two-set solo acoustic show in Dallas April 17, 2014 and towards the middle of the second set Young was telling the story behind his Martin D-28 guitar when an audience member cut him off by repeatedly yelling “Play it!”

“I don’t think I’m going to play it,” Neil said.  “I’m trying to remember the last time I did what somebody told me to do.” Neil continued to get into it with the fans, exclaiming “what is this, a job?” and “How about you talk, and I’ll listen?” He then offered a biting take on “Harvest Moon” after which he noted, “Funny — that song is not supposed to be angry, You get what you demand.”

Take a listen to how it went down:

[...] that stubborn independence, what you might call his ornery critter streak, means that there is always a thrilling edge of anticipation when he releases a new album: with Neil Young you never know what he\'s going to come up with next.
