Also, the concert review of the moment is from Neil Young & Crazy Horse Concert: Stockholm, Sweden - August 3, 2014 by The Loner:
These concerts are about Love and War and Climate.Thanks The Loner. Well, as they say, an average Neil concert blows away a lot of folks on their best night.
The concert in Stockholm opened with the best Love and Only Love I've heard. Rick Rosas gave depth to the sound. Poncho and Neil worked intensively to tear down hate with their guitars. This was followed by fine versions of Powderfinger, Standin 'In The Light of Love and Days That Used To Be. In Living with War Neil commented that it was a song he hoped would be unnecessary to play, and said they would now play a song about fighting within the home. Love To Burn where amazing –the best of the evening - Neil and Poncho arguing with guitars. Delicious! Then it became somewhat looser.
The arrangement of the Name of Love was far from perfect and Blowin' In The Wind and the Heart of Gold did little for me. It took up with Barstool Blues, where Neil and Poncho really were having a good time. Neil dedicated ‘Pill’ to all the beautiful women, and the song has become a small concert favorite with me. Cortez came! Periods gorgeous, but also periods with little progress. Neil had a discussion and voting among the public about Down By River or Rockin' in the Free World.
Neil also consulted the wooden indian, Woody, who responded that the songs were the same and that he did not care. Neil had probably decided in advance that they would play Rockin' In The Free World. Long intense but dwindled with the focus on new lines of text, and not entirely successful conclusion. Additional number Who's Gonna Stand up and save the Earth again underlined the evening's main message and the audience sang along.
All in all a great concert with NYCH, but not among their absolutely best. Fun with all his talk, but did it harm the intensity?
