Europe 2009 Neil Young Concert Highlights

Paul McCartney and Neil Young on "A Day in the Life"

From | Uncut Editor's Diary - Post details: Neil Young – Hard Rock Calling, London Hyde Park, Saturday June 27, 2009 by Allan Jones:
"What follows is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen Neil Young play, a full-on sonic rupture, two hours of unforgiving and unforgettable guitar distortion, seismic upheaval, deafening detonations, feedback rapture, wave after wave after crashing wave of noise, uplifting and triumphant, the kind of thing that tears vents in the atmosphere, disarranging the senses, wholly transcendent, an often savage aural maelstrom out of which emerges finally a charred beauty, that old ragged glory that is oft-mentioned in talk of Neil, his music and the way he plays it."

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.

Neil and The Band played better than the last year. So many memories: in Barcelona The Jayhawks and after the great Neil; the general Archives vibe; some wonderful versions of DBTR; Goin'Back in Paris; Tonight's The Night, Roll Another Number In Berlin;On The way Home in Munich; Harvest Moon in Cologne and, above all, the many meetings with the die hard fans of all nations.Sweet memories.
Thank you, Neil.

Still glaring from the city lights
Into paradise I soared
Unable to come down
For reasons I'd ignored.

Total confusion,
New things I'm knowin'.

I'm standing on the shoreline
It's so fine out there
Leaving with the wind blowing
But love takes care.

Know me, know me
Show me, show me
New things I'm knowin'.

Wind blowing through my sails
It feels like I'm gone
Leaving with the wind blowing
Through my sails.
