Concert Reviews of Neil Young: Cincinnati, OH, May 3, 2011
A rather weird review from Cincinnati.com | Neil Young: Rockin' in a weird world by Chris Varias. It appears that Varias was caught off guard by Young's off beat setlist. Odd? Apparently just another lazy music critic that didn't do his homework.
Here's a comment in response to Chris Varias' weird review from GeoCorneliussen:
A long time ago, Neil Young announced to the world and his fans that he was not here to be a human jukebox. Young has held one constant throughout his entire career ( a career that started in the 1960's) . He has always said upfront that the music comes first and if there's any success to be had from it, that will have to come second. Only hardcore Neil Young fans know that he quit the band Buffalo Springfield on the verge of their greatest success because he thought the band had compromised it's musical goals.
Neil Young fans are never surprised when Young does something unexpected, on the contrary, they would be disappointed if he didn't.
From Neil Young Sings About ‘Love And War,’ In The Shadow Of Bin Laden Killing » MTV Newsroom by Gil Kaufman:
I know better than to expect Neil Young to respond to the day's news with self-important stage patter. As long as he keeps singing about love and war, though, that's enough for me.
Neil Young will be performing tonight at Aronoff Center, Cincinnati, Ohio. Special guest Bert Jansch will open concert.
