Concert Reviews of Neil Young in London, Ontario, Canada: 4/15/09
From 925 JACK FM - Toronto's Best Rock Variety - Andrews Rock Blog:
: "Last night’s Neil Young show in London at the John Labatt Centre was the best I’ve ever seen from the man, and I’ve seen quite a few (I believe it was number 13). The band, who he’s spent the better part of a year touring with, has a second sense with Neil, and knows where he’s going during any one song. The set list was a great mix between classics and obscurities, the highlights for me including “Change Your Mind” from 1994’s Sleeps With Angels, and a great version of Harvest’s “Are You Ready For The Country”, with Neil playing the song’s stellar piano part.
From CANOE -- JAM! Neil Young - Concert Review By JAMES REANEY:
Nine thousand Rusties can't be wrong -- Neil Young never gets old.
Canadian rock icon Neil Young and a jammed John Labatt Centre communed in downtown London last night.
On a night when he plays miles of great guitar, Young saved his big, folk style hits -- Heart of Gold and Old Man -- for late in the main set. By that time, the star had doffed the checked shirt he wore for most of the show and was in a mystifying T, apparently celebrating somebody called Mr. Fiesta.
No matter. Just as his hard-rocking classics such as Cinnamon Girl had roused the crowd mid-set, the quieter songs produced singalongs and huge cheers.
Neil Young will be performing tonight at John Labatt Centre, London, Ontario, Canada.
