Neil Young Concert Reviews - Fox Theatre Atlanta, GA - May 29, 2010
From Bluffton Today - She says ... Neil Young’s tunes bring back old memories by Annelore Harrell:
And we sat down and listened.
Expecting acoustic, we were instead presented with a fullblown electric concert. After five decades of performing, his voice and playing style are stronger than ever. I have never been to a rock concert before where the audience claps and yells like mad, then abruptly sits down in eager anticipation of the next song.
Once in awhile, someone would break out with a yell, but this was a theater full of Neil Young fans who wanted to hear whatever he wanted to share and that meant being quiet. For the next hour and a half, with an intermission too brief to grab a beer, from his White Falcon Gretsch to the Les Paul “Old Black,” he played one guitar after another, did a stint on a funky vintage pump organ and another on a piano sitting stage left.
We sat, listened, stood and clapped and sat again, having no idea of what song he was going to do next. We didn’t care. He gifted us with seven new songs that no doubt will become classics. I sat through “Help,” “Ohio,” and “Cinnamon Girl,” and all of the old songs, remembering those times.
Neil Young will be performing tonight at the Fox Theatre Atlanta, GA. Special guest Bert Jansch will open concert.
