Kingston, Ontario, Canada Concert Reviews of Neil Young: 4/13/09

What a concert last night- I got to see Neil in my home town – what a treat. The concert was fantastic. I have seen him many times since 1986 (including Massey Hall) but there was something extra special about last night. It all started on Sunday night when at a bar in Kingston “The Mansion”, Rocky Roberts performed in “The Living Room” with Rick Rosas, Anthony Crawford and Pegi Young. He also had some local acts including Sara Harmer and The Abrahams Brothers on stage with him. What a great time! And yes I got to meet Pegi and Anthony. A local radio station has me as their “Neil Correspondent”. I’ve attached the link to the interview they did with me before the concert.
But man, Neil was on – I have heard Cortez many, many times in the past, but last night Old Black was singing the notes like I have never heard before. And before he sang Old Man Neil sent out an “I love you” to his family in the audience (you may remember Scott Young past away while living in Kingston a few years ago). Two encores, with a version of Rockin’ in The Free World that had the whole arena rockin’.
Neil really created a connection last night. If you get a chance to see Neil on this tour, do it.
I send a couple of pictures from our digital camera that we took last night and one with Anthony and me and some of the Rocky Roberts concert. Here is a bit of an article from the local paper http://www.thewhig.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1522622

From Crowd roars at Young show - The Whig Standard - Ontario, CA by GREG BURLIUK:
On the title song of his new CD Fork in The Road,Neil Young jokes about having a pot belly and how his record sales have tanked, the implication being that he's a has-been.
Try telling that to the 6,500 fans who jammed the K-Rock centre last night to greet the legendary Canadian rocker with a massive wave of affection.
Neil Young will be performing tonight at K-Rock Centre, Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
