Neil Young – Carnegie Hall

Carnegie-Hall

guess the setlist…

“Young will perform at Carnegie Hall on January 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th. While it’s unclear how the set lists will look, Young built his recent Farm Aid set around cover songs by 1960s and 1970s songwriting greats like Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Tim Hardin and Phil Ochs. “[Ochs] was one of the greatest poets that ever lived,” Young said from the stage. “Last time he appeared in public was at Carnegie Hall. He wore a gold lamé suit. He was a folk singer. He was a little bit sidetracked by fame and commerciality.”

Neil Young & Crazy Horse at 40th edition Lokerse Feesten

Neil Young & Crazy Horse will perform at the 40th anniversary of the Lokerse Feesten in Lokeren, Belgium  on Tuesday 5th August. It will be their last show in the European Tour 2014 and everyone who attended the closing concert of their previous tour in 2001 (‘Ahoy The Killer’ – 24 July 2001) knows how scorchingly intense their performance can be, according to festival organizers.

And on top of that Neil and his comrades will not be playing a short festival set, but a full 2-hour concert.

Presales for this unique concert start immediately.  The 10-day passes are also already available. New this year is that you will have the possibility to buy a separate 9-day pass (excluding 5 August). This 9-day pass will be available later when most of the line-up has been published.

Saddle your horse and be part of rock music history!

Young film “Needle of Death” shown at Celebration of Jansch’s life

A film of Neil Young singing “Needle of Death” was shown at “A Celebration of Bert Jansch” at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Dec. 3.Bert-Jansch

Neil has commented that he first started listening to Bert Jansch in Vicky Taylor’s apartment in Yorkville Village in Toronto in the mid-60s. He was captivated with Jansch’s first recording and listened to it over and over. Neil has admitted borrowing heavily from “Needle of Death” for his own “Ambulance Blues” a decade later, according to Young historian and Zuman  Sharry Wilson.

Young toured with Jansch in 2011.

Jansch, who was credited with influencing a generation of musicians, died in October 2011 at the age of 67 after a two-year battle with lung cancer.

The Scottish musician Jansch was a founding member of the group Pentangle, with whom he gave his last public performance in August of that year when they reformed, according to an article from the Scotland Herald.

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant was among music stars who celebrated the work and inspiration of the late folk-rock guitarist Bert Jansch at the tribute concert. Also on the bill were former Suede star Bernard Butler, 60s chart act Donovan – famed for tracks such as Hurdy Gurdy Man – and London Town hit-maker Ralph McTell.

Oh, absolutely. I read a review of my record and someone said, \"She sounds like Lucinda Williams fronting Crazy Horse.\" I thought, wow, I never really thought that Neil Young was a big influence, but I guess in some way he\'s a subconscious one. It\'s a huge compliment. Not only is he a great musician and artist, but I have a lot of respect for the way he leads his life and takes a stand on things that are personally important to him.
