Winnipeg - Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Alchemy Tour - 11/16/12
Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Hey Hey, My My - MTS Centre, Winnipeg MB, Nov 16, 2012
From review Neil Young and Crazy Horse ride high in Winnipeg - Canada Music | Examiner.com by Robert Rheubottom:
Fans looking for more “Harvest” era hits like “Heart of Gold” or “Old Man” were out of luck as Young strapped on his Les Paul electric “Ol’ Black” and led Crazy Horse on another lengthy workout from “Pill,” a emotional number about a dissolving marriage due to alcohol abuse titled “Ramada Inn.”
Neil finally threw a bone to the hit seekers, performing a slightly extended version of his 1969 hit “Cinnamon Girl,” which earned him his first standing ovation, followed by another track from “Pill” titled, “F**ckin' Up,” which featured fierce guitar interplay between Sampedro and Young.
In the homestretch, Young’s familiar “Satisfaction”-like guitar riff introduced his 1967 Buffalo Springfield classic “Mr. Soul,” which had many of the thousands of babyboomers misty-eyed and cinched the evening with his rock anthem “Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black) prior to returning for a quick encore, performing “Roll Another Number” from 1975’s “Tonight’s the Night.”
Young clearly still has his muse and remains a relevant creative force. Teamed with Crazy Horse, he continues to ride high and rock with the best of them.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse will be performing tonight at Winnipeg, MB – MTS Centre, Canada.
