Dublin, Ireland Concert Reviews of Neil Young: 6/21/09
Harvest Moon was played tonight!
Gavin and his family's wish in memory of Papa Joe is heard.
Just in from Gavin on Neil Young News: A Request for "Harvest Moon" in Dublin:
Yes, it was incredible night for all of us at the concert. Neil was absolutely amazing in Dublin tonight.....as you say Christine, the O2 was rocked to its core. Pure Magic.
Like you, Liza, we had tears of sadness and joy mixed together.
I still can't believe that the three requests for Harvest Moon that came through Thrashers Wheat were all successful.
Neil just said.....
"This ones for a friend of ours out there, Happy Fathers Day!"
...and then started into Harvest Moon.
The father's day reference really hit the spot, we were turned to jelly.
Even apart from the request, Neil played one of his best concerts ever tonight. The Irish crowd gave him so much back, and he looked to really enjoy it.
Neil, the gestures that you have made have a huge impact on people. Simple things like this really do make a difference. We are all eternally grateful for your generosity.
The healing is happening, that is for sure. Of course we will always miss Papa Joe, but memories like tonight will keep him alive in our hearts.
God Bless You All!
Take care and keep on rockin'
p.s. Vittorio, thanks for your kind words and generous offer, apologies but I didn't get to see it in time.
Gavin, we're so happy for you and your family.
It is all about family.
