Concert Review of the Moment: Neil Young in Buffalo, NY, May 19, 2010

The Neil Young Concert Review of the Moment is from Buffalo, NY, May 19, 2010 by GEM:

Talk about having your cake & eating it too, well seeing Neil solo was the icing on the cake. The celebration for the cake was being at Shea's in the front row A, orchestra seating, 12 feet from Neil, with my soul mate beside me engulfed in Neils musical world, I love it all, old, new, out of this world tunes, it's all Neil!

Previewing new songs at any concert is a gift Neil chooses to give, its like winning the musical lottery that's amazing, watching Neil speak with his songs & instruments looking us in the eye with my husband next to me. We'll definately attend more concerts, it is always a pleasant surprise...

Neil offers his fans all around unexpected pleasures for sure. What I like about Neil is he's Neil; that is what makes him the successful one of a kind, like no other musician that he is, naturally. It is me, my husband & Neil; always has been & always will be, wouldn't be the same without either one of them in my life, my husband showed me what Neil is all about & 4 concerts later & many hours of Neils songs which I appreciate just as much as the person behind it all & whome I respect.

Thanks For Being Genuine over the years, Thanks For Keeping It Real & Never Losing your Love For Music or the reality of live, love, & the life of the people which you portray in your songs as well as their actions so clearly. One mans emotion touches everyone like a hand of friendship widely extended out to all the world. Neil is a very much enjoyed part of our musical family.

Keep on saving the music of the world Neil, by just being you in your many layers!

Music makes the world go round!

GEM's review was then followed by her husband Woodrow's thoughts:
Last night, my wife "Gem" & I saw Neil at Shea's, my 6th Neil concert. Some thoughts...The new songs are overall, very good, most were emotionally moving, they blended well with the old tunes. I'll need to hear the new ones many more times to be able say too much, but they seemed touched with equal amounts of melancholy, reflection, & pondering but also with optimism, vitality, & vigor. Humour as well, these are all things Neil has put into his songs through all the years.

Hitchhiker was definitely the standout song of the night, Neil showed such passion, and commited himself into that song just like the very best he's ever done. That one song was worth the ticket price alone.

Seeing Neil live & in person is like spending time with one you love, you cherish all of the times, the moments, whatever those times might hold, they're all priceless & one of a kind.

Electric Solo Neil is speachlessly amazing, Neil is able to somehow make his electic guitar combined with his vocals, sound so very close to a whole live band, with such depth of sounds... At times forgetting it eas just Neil up there. You simply have to experience it to really understand. Neil "WAS" the whole band. Nothing missing. Wow! The new album ought to be fabulous. 64 and there's so much more!

Thanks GEM & Woodrow!
