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.”

Birmingham Review

Short review from the June 11 Neil Young & Crazy Horse concert at the LG Arena in Birminghamn, England.

Next Glasgow, Scotland on June 13.

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.”

“Sing it like you mean it?” asked Neil Young, responding to something shouted from the crowd, pulling an
incredulous, self-amused face.

“Why the **** would you sing it if you didn’t  mean it?” Good one Neil.

Neil & Crazy Horse played the Metro Radio Arena in New Castle, England on June 10. The review by Neil McCormick at the Telegraph  opines:” He is not really interested in crowd-pleasing, which is precisely why he pleases his crowd so much.”

As for the 2 1/2 hour set he says “the sheer howling pleasure of it was utterly infectious.”
