Here are a couple of Concert Reviews of the Moment of Neil Young in San Diego, CA, 10/29/08.
LONG LIVE NEIL YOUNG!!!

Sorry to the fans in L.A. Hope he can re-schedule something.

Neil Young right now is at the top of his game.

Last night was one of THE best shows I have ever attended. The first time I saw him was in 1968 (or maybe it was 1969....it was ths 60's after all) with The Buffalo Springfield and since then I have seen him a dozen times or more times with many different bands. With Crazy Horse, CSN, Friends and Relatives, Booker T and the MG's, solo, and last nights group of musicians. Small venues and large Neil has never disappointed this life long fan. But after attending last nights show I'm convinced he has never been better.He is at the top of his game!

The energy level that comes from the stage is almost life altering. After the concert I couldn't sleep. I would stir constantly and find myself thinking about what I had just experienced. It affects you, a Neil Young concert.

Neil Young has an ability to pass energy on to who ever cares to recieve. You think to yourself, how can this guy maintain this kind energy level through his music, night after night while touring the world. But he does.

This morning I felt energized, even though I hadn't slept much. Energy comes from doing something you are passionate about. Neil Young is passionate about his music. It is obvious at any of his shows. You feel it..physically.

Maybe "Just Singing a Song Can't Change the World" but a career of songs delivered with passion and with the energy level that I experienced, last night can certainly change the people lucky enough to have seen Neil Young at the top of his game!!

LONG LIVE NEIL YOUNG!!

Also, from Anonymous:
Sucks about the LA cancellation but Neil is just keeping true to himself, and he will reschedule just hang in there because no matter how long you wait it is completely well worth it, the San Diego show blew me away. He may be in his 60's but I have never been to a more wonderful concert. There were various instruments, tons of songs, and his guitar notes would just linger... his voice was super strong as well, not as high as back in the day but still beautiful. All the while I couldn't help but be amazed at his musical skills and I had never seen anyone that talented play before, it was great and it was truly rock and roll. He was so humble about it, he just did his thing and it seemed like he blushed when after every song he was getting a standing ovation and I think he didn't talk much because the audience was screaming the ENTIRE show, I mean they never let up it was just that great!

Overall, if that was the one Neil Young show I was blessed to see in my life I would be 100% satisfied with that. If I ever see him again I would love it more, but it was probably my favorite concert I've ever been too. My favorite song would have to be Old Man and he played it and it was beautiful and definite emotional but the song with most energy would have to be keep on rocking in the free world...the lights illuminate the crowd and everyone was into it screaming and cheering and dancing...And for the encoure he came back to cover a Beatles song. This last song he proceeded to break every single string on his guitar but still continued playing. I loved it, I'm still thinking about it friday morning, super powerful and amazing.

Neil Young only enforced my belief ROCK AND ROLL WILL NEVER DIEEEEEEEEE

LONG LIVE NEIL YOUNG!!
Thanks for showcasing my review, Thrasher.
Here it is, Sinday morning, and reading through it again brings back the evening and the feeling of having just experienced his incredible talent.
If any of you folks are sitting on the fence as to whether or not to go see him, get off it. Committ, spend the money and go....You won't regret it!!
