Concert Review of the Moment: Neil Young in Austin, TX, June 5, 2010

The Neil Young Concert Review of the Moment is from Austin, TX, June 5, 2010 by swansong:
My wife and I were at the Austin show on June 5th. We drove 1200 miles from Sedona AZ. just to see Neil in concert. This was my wife's very first Neil show, and my eighth.

Of all the shows I've seen from Neil, this was the most personal. Each song sounded as if it had just been written; new and old, the emotions still raw, the pictures still vivid, the moment still fresh. Songs almost too personal to share with strangers.

As always, the sound was beyond perfection, and the audience was completely immersed in each and every note. There were moments when you could have heard a pin drop. The new songs were so personal, so authentic, so raw. We were both completely mesmerized throughout the whole concert.

Our round trip was 2451 miles, we spent close to $2000.00, and did it all in four days. Was it worth it? You better believe it was. Neil Young is a true artist, one totally committed to his craft, and he just keeps getting better with age. His performance at Bass Auditorium in Austin Texas on June 5, 2010 will hold up as one of our most cherished memories.

Thanks Neil, for always keeping it real.

Thanks swansong!

Sorry for thread dropping but just wanted to let people know that there is a problem with Hyperrust at the moment. Bandwith exceeded.

Also Al Jardine of the Beach Boys solo album "A Postcard from California" features NY and David Crosby on a couple of tracks. NY shares lead on the remake of "California Saga" (original on Holland in 1973".

Please feel free to move this to an appropriate area.

Me and two of my buddies drove out from California!! We thought we were the only crazy ones..hah. This was all our first Neil concerts and let me tell you it was worth every mile. THE coolest thing I've ever seen and a trip I will never forget. Driving straight through the night on the open 40 highway listening to jams like "unknown legend," "Hank to Hendrix," "Old laughing lady," and "falling from above." Ill never forget this trip. A true highlight to my life and Neil blew me away. Hail on Neil Fans!
