Concert Review of the Moment: Aberdeen, Scotland: 6/24/09
The Neil Young Concert Review of the Moment is from Aberdeen, Scotland on 6/24/09 by Davie:
Last night was just incredible, the best gig ever.
I've been lucky enough to see Neil 3 times in the last 2 years, and this was the best of them. It even beat Edinburgh, it was that good.
I still can't believe how young he looked last night. I could have been watching him about 20 years ago, and I honestly don't think I'd be able to tell! What energy!
From the opening riff of Hey Hey My My, to the closing notes of A Day In The Life, Neil just never let up!
Highlights for me were On The Way Home, Are You Ready For The Country?, Spirit Road, Cortez, RITF, and to be honest, the whole bloody show. Not a bad moment in it, apart from whatever the guy did to annoy Neil after Harvest Moon...
He even played Comes A Time, a song I have been shouting for on TW for about 2 months now. And then, just near the end of the song, he looked right at me, my dad and my sister, and nodded, as though he was adknowledging my request (as my dad mentioned earlier, 2nd comment here). Spooky or what! I can dream that he knew who had been requesting it all along I guess... :-)
I'm lucky enough to be seeing him in London again on Saturday, although I'm sad to say that I doubt anything will ever beat Aberdeen. (Prove me wrong though Neil!!!!)
All I can say is, thank-you Neil, for choosing Aberdeen as one of your shows this tour, it was incredible, the best ever, and I personally will never forget it.
My only hope is that I'll see him live again, after Hyde Park, because he is the best there is, was, and ever will be. I hope Archives Guy or some of Neil's people can pass that message on to him.
So thanks Neil, Pegi, Ben, Rick, Chad, Anthony, Larry and all of Neil's crew, for keeping the best show in the world on the road!
Keep On Rockin' In The Free World Neil! And we'll look forward to seeing you back in Europe next time, it'll be "good to see you again"...
