Neil Young

Neil Young will hit the road solo on April 15th, stopping for two nights at NYC's Avery Fisher Hall along the way. Neil's new album was released towards the end of 2010. His Warner Brothers-affiliated label points out that:

"The eight-song Le Noise, among Young's most critically-embraced albums, is a collaboration between the acclaimed rock icon and musician, songwriter, and multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Daniel Lanois, known for his work with U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, The Neville Brothers and many others. Le Noise was released by Reprise Records on September 28th, 2010."
Keep an eye on Lincoln Center's website for the NYC show tickets. All tour dates are listed below...

Why is he playing in the worst-sounding room in NYC??

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 1:38 PM

Worst sounding (major venue) room is easily Terminal 5.

The only rock show I have seen at Avery Fisher Hall was Yo La Tengo, and the sound was good.

Stop your complaining! This is awesome.

Hell yes!!!!! thank you

Can be awesome if most of the tickets are not over 100 bucks which I suspect they are.

Any truth that Thurston Moore is opening up for some of these dates?

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 2:14 PM

These tickets will be very expensive.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 2:16 PM

Well some cities are on Ticketmaster already and top prices are like last tour with $254!

What's the capacity at this place again? Isn't it only like 1500?

Anon 1:38pm Keep going to Death by Audio or whatever crap venue Todd P promotes and keep thinking those venues or whatever you want to call it are better than home of NY Philaharmonic "Avery Fisher Hall"

Another pointless dumb hipster commenting on nothing but stupidity.

neil young is old. and annoying. and people who buy neil young records are dumb. there i said it.

Neil Young is legit, he is one of the few among his contemporaries that has never sold out.

Keep On Rockin' in the Free World.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 2:31 PM

Hey BV readers,
I listen to the Black Lips, Matt and Kim, Girl Talk, Dan Deacon, Vivian Girls and etc....and they're not annoying at all. Love them more than Neil.

Thanks,

Hey 2:35.
I listen to Best Coast, Wavves, Neon Indian and King Tuff and you're a dumdumhead.

Thanks!

2:35 - bad attempt at sarcasm.
2:25 - you've said nothing. but your feeble attempt at communicating reveals you to be a bored teenager whose x-box must be broken or something, thereby giving you the opportunity to showcase your ignorance for the world to see.

"Any truth that Thurston Moore is opening up for some of these dates?"

Almost any opener would be better than having to listen to Neil Young's wife again. Ugh.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 2:45 PM

Well 2:39,

I Listen to La Sera, Tennis, The Babies and Jacuzzi Boys, so I am better than you and 2:35.

The Jacuzzi Boys and WAVVES suck so bad that they'd probably be embarrassed to perform in front of a legend like Neil Young.

Young Neil

Ciao, Knives

I would like to see Neil Young again, but if the price of his show in Baltimore is an indication of what to expect, then count me out...

$80 for cheap seats*
$245 for good seats*

*includes TM fees.

I have dropped a decent amount on tickets for other shows, but this is a little insane.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 2:55 PM

Who are the beetles?

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 3:03 PM

agreed 2:55. i'm a neil fan who first saw him in 1975, but i passed up on the shows at united palace theater a few years back because they were insanely priced.

and rest assured that the shows at avery fisher will be priced higher than in baltimore (or anywhere else).

same thing happens with costello...tix for his shows in philly or other cities are $25-30 cheaper than his NYC shows.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 3:09 PM

1:38 has never seen a live show.

Posted by GregBX | March 7, 2011 3:13 PM

1:42 Considering that this is his best album since 1994, and a rare opportunity to see him perform solo (if you've seen the Freedom home video you know his solo sets can be riveting), yes.

If you don't care about those things, that's fine, but the answer to your dumb question is still yes.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 3:13 PM

Nothing says someone's an idiot quite like using "he's old" as a criticism. This goes for 2:25 and every other moron who does this.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 3:31 PM

saw him on the lead-up tour; fucking awesome and LOUD

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 3:33 PM

It's not that he's old, it's that he likes model trains.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 4:20 PM

@3:33pm - if you mean his last show at MSG, that is what i call a show - ran past 12:30 am - if that's what it means to be "old", then i'm in

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 4:29 PM

tell grandma that neil young is touring AGAIN

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 4:30 PM

neil couldn't sell out if he tried, and he's almost as overrated as akron/family

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 4:37 PM

@4:29: I meant the solo tour he did in the lead-up to the release of Le Noise. (It didn't hit NYC)

Posted by 3:33 | March 7, 2011 4:38 PM

Neil YOung is your generation's Neil Young.

Neil Young? More like Neil Old.

Neil Old? More like Neil Better Than You and Your Sorry Ass Family.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 5:27 PM

there are people on this post actually ripping on neil young? cmon now, don't just be a dick for the sake of it. if you don't want to see neil on this tour then fine, skip over the post. but i think it would be hard for anyone to argue that neil isn't a legend who has released some really beautiful and influential music over the years, so why is their the need for the hate?

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 5:38 PM

was trying to parse 5:38 for sarcasm. on the fence as to whether "their" seals it

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 5:52 PM

really not a very good album at all. sounds like neil young trying to sound like neil young. snoozefest. i hate when to former icons think their mere paring will result in an iconic paring. hang it up bro.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 6:18 PM

Yeah Neil, you heard the anonymous, no-nothing, internet loser, hang it up, um...bro.

when is john fogerty touring?

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 6:41 PM

Goddamn it, you people are fucking idiots. If you can't appreciate what Neil Young is doing then you have no business talking about music. This man is a legend and his live show has remained solid through the decades since he started. He is worth seeing even if the album wasn't all that great.

How are people hating on Neil Young?

Avery Fisher Hall seats about 500 less than United Palace. I'd love to see Neil again. This would be my third time, having seen him with CSNY & Crazy Horse already. Hopefully tickets wont be ridiculous.

Le Noise is an amazing album. Open the mind and let it in.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2011 12:37 PM

I wouldn't call neil young a "legend" because that by itself almost suggests something fake, something that existed and then ended and was glorified for the sake of consumerism. no way, neil is beyond "legend" and can not be demarcated by that term, unlike the way the rolling stones have and in many ways have chosen to be. As a a musician, he has overwhelming redefined what rock n' roll is and can be, in the past and in the present, combining lyricism, history, and sonic originality even in his most simplistic and arguably greatest songs. he cant be defined and refuses to be, allowing him to remain true to himself and the music, and even to us, the fans. thanks neil, keep rockin

"Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (May 1969), is credited to "Neil Young with Crazy Horse." Recorded in just two weeks, the album opens with one of Young's most familiar songs, "Cinnamon Girl," and is dominated by two more, "Cowgirl in the Sand" and "Down by the River," that feature lengthy jams showcasing Young's idiosyncratic guitar soloing accompanied sympathetically by Crazy Horse. Young reportedly wrote all three songs on the same day, while nursing a high fever of 103 °F (39 °C) in bed."

thats how its done.
