Glastonbury Festival Concert Reviews of Neil Young: 6/26/09
UPDATE: BBC Responds to Coverage Criticism of Neil Young's Glastonbury Concert
Nice photo gallery on BBC.
"A Day in the Life" conclusion
Video is complete rubbish. However, video shows Neil bashing Ol Black with mic stand?!
From Review: Neil Young rocks Glastonbury - Glastonbury - QTheMusic.com:
"No review’s going to do this justice, so let’s just get this out the way. Neil Young was just phenomenal.
Michael Eavis has tried and failed four times previously to get Neil Young to play at his little party down on Worthy Farm dating right back to the days when local stores would put ‘No Hippies Allowed’ on their windows.
Why Old Farmer Eavis has been so determined to book him is apparent from the moment Neil Young hits the stage. There’s no farting about, his trusty scarred Gibson Les Paul, Old Black, comes straight out and he clangs straight into My My Hey Hey. Seldom has the lyric “better to burn out than fade away” been more pertinent than the day after the death of a King. But also because at this festival of legends there are some here who have faded beyond repair. What this set proved more than anything is that Neil Young isn’t among their number."

From Trevor Lindley aka 'TheLoner':
The UK's BBC has extensive coverage of the Glastonbury Festival on TV, radio & online, and usually broadcast live footage of the headline acts.
Neil Young is due onstage at 9pm GMT (4pm EST?) and should get some live time on BBC TV (BBC2,3 or 4), BBC Radio 1 & Radio 6, plus online coverage via http://www.bbc.co.uk/glastonbury/. The website link also has further details of what's going on.
Thunderstorms are currently forecast in the area for Friday night, though I suspect that will be as a result of Old Black rather than the weather...
Thanks TheLoner! Enjoy the show!
Neil Young will be performing tonight at the Pyramid Stage, Glastonbury Festival, England.
