The Neil Young Concert Review of the Moment is from the Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas, TX , June 7, 2010:
I read in an earlier post from someone that mentions Neil's show in Redrocks. I was at that show as well and it was one of my favorite concert moments as Neil played "Cowgirl in the Sand" through a driving rain in freezing temperatures. The harder the rain fell with lightning all around, the harder Neil grinded out that song. By the end of that show, I felt like I had witnessed something very special.
The Dallas show left me with exactly the same feelings of having witnessed something special in a completely different way. The solo show was so good and emotionally draining that again you know you witnessed something very special.
While I was sitting there taking in the show taking in the great old songs and really digging the new material, I was reminded of a quote from U2's Rattle and Hum..."It's like a muscial journey" and a musical journey it was at the Meyerson.
The Hitchhiker is one bad ass song that I had never heard before and I can not wait to get that bad boy on my IPOD :-)
Leaving the theater I was thinking about folks who do not like Neil Young and how I would respond to them when they asked how the show was. If I have to try to explain to you what makes Neil and his music great, you don't get it and I can not explain it to you.But if you are lucky enought to be able to tune in to the that special wavelength and vibe, you know what I am talking about.
Great show and thanks for allowing us to take that journey with you!
