‘Concert Reviews’ Articles

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.”

Dublin fans disappointed

DublinThe Irish may be a tough crowd.

According to the Irish Times, the crowd of 18,000 attending the Dublin June 15 show with Neil Young and Crazy Horse left disappointed with a self-indulgent performance.

The sound was awful, many said.

It starts out: “What was that wafting through the air at the RDS Arena last night? It was the smell of disappointment, as 18,000 Neil Young fans came to the slow and painful realisation that the man in black on stage was there only to please himself and not the modest attendance at the 30,000 capacity venue.”

The writer, Kevin Courtney, and the crowd it seems, wanted more classics. Some commenters at the end of the article beg to differ.

Innaresting reaction.

Glasgow Review

Very short review of Glasgow concert from the Scotland Herald.

neilyoungUseIt starts out: “It is, indeed, better to burn out than to fade away. Neil Young’s first show in Glasgow with Crazy Horse since 2001 was an exhilarating event, old and much-loved songs from his formidable back catalogue being thrown into the mix alongside newer songs. Predictable it wasn’t.”

29800190“Only Neil Young could subject an audience to 10 minutes of sustained sonic assault and still have them eating out of his hand a few moments later.”  ~ Express & Star

Reviewer Simon Penfold writes: “He and his faithful backing band had hit a peak with new song Walk Like a Giant – a lament for the failed dreams of the 60s – when it metamorphosed into a bewildering tailspin of feedback and growling guitar din that filled the LG Arena like the wrath of God.”
